Hi Dr. Bermant,
Seven years ago I had otoplasty performed to help with protruding ears. The procedure went alright until a few of my friends began noticing differences with my ears and pointing them out to me. For starters, the top of my left ear still protrudes more than my right. Secondly, the centre of my left ear is thinner than the right while the right appears thick and flat. I've visited a plastic surgeon who told me he couldn't do anything for me because the previous surgeon had cut through cartilage.
Since my friends have started commenting on these differences, I have found it extremely difficult to tie up my hair out of my face and reveal my ears because I am embarrassed. The only time I tie my hair up is if it is covering my ears or if I am wearing a thick headband to cover them up.
Can you suggest anything for me? Would you be able to take a look at it for me?
