Ear plastic surgery, also known as otoplasty, is a procedure that can correct various ear-related issues. Whether you are unhappy with the shape or size of your ears or have a medical condition that affects your ears, otoplasty can provide a solution.

Here are five reasons to contact us and discuss ear plastic surgery.

You are Self-conscious About Your Ears

If you are unhappy with the appearance of your ears, ear plastic surgery can help. Some people feel that their ears are too large, too small or asymmetrical. Others may have ears that protrude too far from their head. You can even have a problem with only one of your ears while the other seems fine. Whatever the issue, otoplasty can correct it, helping you feel more confident and comfortable in your own skin.

You Suffered an Injury to Your Ears

You may need ear plastic surgery to repair the damage if you have experienced trauma to your ears, such as a car accident or sports injury. Otoplasty can correct a variety of injuries, from torn earlobes to more serious damage to the ear structure. Often, only one ear becomes damaged and requires repair. Dr. Del Vecchio can repair and sculpt the damaged ear to match the undamaged ear for complete symmetry and aesthetic appeal.

You Have a Medical Condition that Affects Your Ears

There are a variety of medical conditions that can affect the ears. These can include:

  • Congenital defects
  • Infections
  • Tumors
  • Birthmarks

Ear plastic surgery can often treat these conditions. Dr. Del Vecchio and his team can help you determine if otoplasty is right for you.

You Have Hearing Loss

Ear plastic surgery cannot cure hearing loss but can help improve your hearing ability. Otoplasty corrects the shape of the pinna, or the outer ear, which affects how sound is gathered and funneled into the ear. A study published in the Journal of Otolaryngology-Head & Neck Surgery determined that “Pinna position affects audiological performance, in both speech intelligibility and speech reception in noise.” Otoplasty may be able to help you hear better.

You Want to Improve Your Quality of Life

Ultimately, the decision to undergo ear plastic surgery is a personal one. It may be worth considering if you are unhappy with your ears and feel that otoplasty can help improve your quality of life. Talk to Dr. Del Vecchio in Boston to learn more about the procedure and whether it suits you.

Ear plastic surgery can be a life-changing procedure for those who need it. Whether you are looking to improve the appearance of your ears or address a medical condition, otoplasty can provide a solution. Call or contact Back Bay Plastic Surgery in Boston today to schedule a consultation.
