Male Otoplasty Can Reset Protruding Ears for Improved Appearance
Surgeons have long noted the psychological impact of protruding ears: the shape, size or positioning of the ears can have a significant impact on the self-esteem of many boys and men. Ear-pinning surgery, also known as an otoplasty, reduces the size of the ears, reshapes them or resets protruding ears so that they sit closer to the head.
“Otoplasty is designed to bring better proportion to ears, thereby improving aesthetic balance. The surgery is often performed in children with prominent ears, but is also very effective in older patients who would like to improve the appearance of their ears,” explains Dr Trelles, plastic and laser surgeon at state-of-the-art dentistry, plastic and aesthetic laser surgery clinic Vilafortuny.
