Having ears that appear to extend too far is a fairly common matter and one that can cause embarrassment and self-consciousness to many people, both adults and children. If you are bothered by how far your ears stick out from your head, you may wish to consider having a procedure called otoplasty in Honolulu. Once your ears, or your child’s, have reached their full size, you can discuss this surgery with our experts.
What is Otoplasty?
Otoplasty in Honolulu refers to the correction of the cartilaginous skeleton of the ear. The surgeon corrects the cartilage and remodels it in a way that provides a better overall aesthetic.
How Long Does the Procedure Take?
The exact length of the otoplasty procedure depends on a number of factors. Surgeons typically perform the procedure on both ears to optimize symmetry. However, it all depends on the unique case.
Why Would You Consider Otoplasty?
There are several reasons you might be dissatisfied with the look of your ears. Among them:
- Your ears may protrude too far from your head.
- Your ears may be large in proportion to your head.
- You could be dissatisfied with an earlier ear surgery.
