Myths about Cosmetic Ear Surgery

Cosmetic Ear Surgery MythsOtoplasty, more commonly known as ear surgery, focuses on the overall look, shape, and size of ears. However, we want to debunk a few myths about ear surgery before you take the plunge into full-blown ear surgery.

Myths about Cosmetic Ear Surgery

Below are a few of the common misconceptions about cosmetic ear surgery:

  • You can only be considered for ear surgery if you were born with abnormal ears in size and shape: Anyone who is in good health can be considered for ear surgery. If you have a problem with your ears that’s not obvious to others but makes you uncomfortable, you can still have surgery.
  • If you have ear gauges, your ears will never look normal again: With most cosmetic procedures, looking perfect can be too high of an expectation. However, looking normal is not. Cosmetic surgeons and specialists can help with the reshaping of a stretched earlobe and make it look as close to before as possible.
  • Just like with some other cosmetic surgeries, I’ll have to get my ears done again to maintain the look: Ear surgeries typically last a lifetime. Unlike other cosmetic procedures, they do not require maintenance surgeries.


Ear surgeries have a lot of good advantages to go with them. A couple of them are…

  • Boosts self-esteem – For those who have been bullied throughout their life about their ears, ear surgery can help. Those who are self-conscious about the way their ears look will feel better about themselves and give them a boost in confidence.
  • Minimally invasive – Ear surgeries are typically minimally invasive procedures and leave little to no scaring left after the procedure is finished.

As with any medical procedure, it’s important to consult with a doctor first before going under the knife. To learn more about ear surgery and other cosmetic procedures, call our office at 972-298-6641 or contact us online today.
