Reasons an adult wants to fix his big ears


Title: An adult wants to know- can you fix his big ears

Charlotte’s most experienced otoplasty surgeon

It is fairly understandable why an adult wants to fix his big ears. The medical term for surgery that is intended to correct oversized or protruding ears is otoplasty. The surgery can be performed at almost any age, once the ears have fully developed. It is generally recommended that otoplasty be performed before a child starts school. However, adults are also excellent candidates for the procedure, and there is no additional risk associated with ear surgery on an adult. Otoplasty is effective for correcting both congenital defects, and issues that become apparent during development. Quite naturally, otoplasty is an effective solution for treating ears that are misshaped by injury.


Explaining otoplasty

Primarily, otoplasty is an aesthetic procedure intended to alter the size, position, or proportion of the ears. The outcome is as different as every individual because no two people’s ears are the same. Otoplasty give adults who have long lived with the stigma or oversized or misshapen ears; the experience of new found self-confidence, and better body image. Surgery can be performed to flatten ears that stick out, bringing them closer against the head. In cases when one ear sits at a higher position than the other, both can be corrected to a natural looking symmetry. Oversized ears are also addressed with a great deal of success.


When to consider otoplasty

There are numerous reasons why an adult would want to undergo surgery to correct his or her ears:


  1. Adults who were born with excessively large or small ears
  2. Adults whose ears are uneven on their head, or oddly placed
  3. Adults who have ears that stick out prominently
  4. If you have suffered an injury that has affected the shape or positioning of your ears
