When some of your features are very large, this can cause you to feel self-conscientious. You know that other people notice very prominent features, and you may even notice individuals having a negative reaction to you. This lowers your self-esteem even more. While it is never good for a person in McAllen to use cosmetic surgery in order to please others, it is definitely beneficial if you do not like something about your appearance and are ready to do something about it.
If you are not familiar with otoplasty, it is cosmetic ear surgery. It can help to fix prominent ears as well as treat a wide variety of other ear problems.
We understand that when you do not feel comfortable with the way you look, you do not have the same confidence as others who do like the way they look. You may shy away from meeting new people, or you may feel nervous taking risks. Many individuals who have used otoplasty or other forms of cosmetic surgery to improve their appearance have commented on the fact that after fixing a problem with their appearance, they felt like they could take on anything. It really gave them a boost of self-confidence.
Otoplasty is a surgery that can be performed on adults and children. It is commonly performed on children because parents understand that if their child has very prominent ears or another feature that sticks out a lot, their child can become the target of bullying in school, and this can seriously affect their self-esteem throughout their entire life.
We have a variety of tools and techniques that are used in order to perform ear surgery. For individuals who have ears that are very prominent or large, Dr. Ayala can reduce the size of the ears and make them better fit in with the size of the head. If you have ears that are very small, prosthetics and other things may be used in order to make the ears larger. Ear surgery can also be used to tuck the ears back if they stick out far. Some individuals need to have otoplasty performed on one ear, while others need to have it performed on both ears in order to be left with an appearance they are happy with.
During a consultation at Ayala ENT & Facial Plastic Surgery in McAllen, you and our plastic surgeon can discuss otoplasty, your particular goals and how the surgery can be used in order to help you improve the way you look.
