Self-confidence is important for everyone. In order to develop properly, children need self-confidence. Often, adults need self-confidence to excel in life. When a person is lacking self-confidence, it can negatively affect virtually all aspects of their life, whether they realize it or not. If your self-confidence is taking a hit because of the appearance of your ears, or if you have a child whose ears are out of proportion with the rest of their features, it is in your best interest to learn as much as you can about otoplasty, also known as ear surgery. There are a lot of children who have ears that protrude from the sides of their heads. This extreme protrusion of the ears is not considered to be normal.
This ear protrusion may be something that is going to attract ridicule, especially for kids. Parents have two options. They can either allow their child to endure the ridicule for having ears that are disproportionately large for their head or they can help their child restore their self-confidence by getting ear surgery. Adults can deal with overly large or protruding ears as well. Perhaps their parents didn’t think to correct their ears when they were a child. Maybe nobody realized the important role that self-confidence plays in a person’s life until you became an adult. Now that you have large ears, you want to do something about it. You know that you need professional help. Dr. Katzen can help you with ear surgery. Ear surgery is performed on an out-patient basis, and the results can be quite phenomenal. After an ear procedure, your child’s ears will sit in a normal position, and a lot of the ridiculing that can affect your child’s confidence at school should disappear.
Or if you are the one dealing with misshaped or protruding ears, your self-confidence will soar. You will enjoy a better quality of life as you enjoy your new and improved ears.
