“Hairstyle Freedom” after Otoplasty

Protruding ears are a big problem for many children and adults.  This deformity can result in bullying, lack of self confidence and the inability to wear ones hair short.  Many children and adults wear their hair long to hide the protruding ears.  It is rewarding as a surgeon to see many male and patients return to their one month otoplasty surgery followup with a new hairstyle; short for the first time in their life!  The case below is an example of a young man who wore his hair long to cover his protruding ears and presented at his post op with his new ear position and short hair!  These are some of the simple rewards of being a cosmetic surgeon and making people feel better about themselves.
