Reduction Otoplasty
« on: December 22, 2010, 03:40:13 AM »
Ears can look large when they project. Macrotia or Large Ears is a rare condition where the ears are actually big. This enlargement can be global across all elements or restricted to only a portion of the ear as seen in the Scapha Large Ear Deformity that often has a flat helix rim. Long Earlobes can be a component of the problem or exist by itself. Surgery for this problem needs to address the specific elements or the ear will become unbalanced and look unnatural. This is a surgical sculpture skill, not all surgeons have the same techniques nor the same ability. Checking what your surgeon actually offers with pictures is a good starting point.

Hope this helps,
