Unlike anti-aging cosmetic procedures like Botox and face lifts and such, cosmetic ear surgery is more of a life achievement than an attempt to turn back the clock. For many people, growing up with the stigma of having large ears, or ears with an abnormal shape can be a real trial.
However, what ever doesn’t kill you makes you stronger right. So right now you probably have skin thicker than a Rhino, and there probably isn’t much people can say about your ears that you haven’t heard before. So ear surgery might be something that you can handle quite easily.
But, still, if you could change the shape and size of your ears you would. Not, just to stop the teasing and the stares, you couldn’t care less what ignorant people think of your appearance. But you’d like to do it for yourself, to make yourself feel better.
Over the past couple of decades more and more people have made the decision to do something about the way their ears look, and as a result cosmetic ear surgery is quickly becoming one of the fastest growing segments of the plastic surgery market.
Plastic surgeons have perfected many procedures involving the ears and they will gladly perform everything from pinning your ears back if the stick out too much and trimming them down if you think that they are too big.
The amount of procedures done each year has also ensured that recovery times and cost have both gone way down, while customer satisfaction has gone way up. In most cases ear surgery can be done on an out patient basis with only a local anesthetic. This also means that more people are candidates for the procedure as there are less possible side effects due to the anesthetic.
The out patient benefit also ensures that the price is lower as the patient does not have to pay for the costly anesthetic nor do they have to pay for an over night hospital bed which can cost hundreds of dollars. But of course if you have the extra time you might want to stay in the hospital for a little while after your ear surgery. You’ll feel better knowing that there are people all around you who know exactly what you are going through, and who can help you if you have any problems.
So if you want to make that life changing decision all you have to do is find a board certified plastic surgeon in the area and set up a consultation and they will be more than happy to quote you a price and start showing you the way to get the ears that you have always wanted.
