For kids, anything that’s different is likely to be called out and teased. Kids with prominent large ears or ears which stick out far from the side of the head can suffer endless taunting and name-calling from their peers which can result in poor self-esteem and low self-confidence. This self-confidence can even carry on into adulthood if the issue is not resolved. Many men and women of varying ages opt for Salinas Otoplasty to create a more normal appearance for their ears.
Otoplasty, or ear surgery, is a procedure in which the cartilage is altered and/or the ears are pinned back closer to the side of the head. All incisions are carefully placed in hidden areas, usually behind the ear. Click here to view a Before and After Otoplasty photo gallery to see the kind of results Otoplasty is capable of achieving.
