Sometimes, it’s about your ears. They protrude further than you’d like – or just one of them does. Maybe they don’t appear quite the same size. Or one or both ears has a malformation, from birth or due to an injury. There’s an ear surgery for that, called otoplasty.
Otoplasty is cosmetic plastic surgery of the outer ear. It is different from surgical procedures performed to correct inner ear problems that cause loss of balance or hearing. In fact, cosmetic changes do not affect your inner ear at all. But, if something about the way your ears look is bothering you, otoplasty could give your self-image a big lift.
