How Otoplasty (protruding ear surgery) Changed our Lives

Protruding ears can be a very be a very big issue for patients, especially children. Bullying, teasing and peer pressure can affect well being and self-confidence and lead to low self-esteem. Otoplasty (the surgical correction of protruding ears) is one of the most rewarding procedures for surgeons as it can truly improve a patients life. From time to time patients will send personal thank you’s in the form of a note, picture or success story. This video shares some of the cases and nice thank you’s I have received from correcting protruding ears on children and adults and how it changed their lives.
