Otoplasty – Ear Surgery Limassol, Cyprus | Dr. Economou, Plastic Surgeon

Ear surgery is also termed as otoplasty. In brief it is a surgical procedure aimed at correcting the shape, size, position and overall proportions of the ear.

Even small ear deformities could have a big effect on a person’s self esteem. So if protruding or large ears concern you or your child, you may consider surgical correction.

Otoplasty (ear surgery)

The ears, as with any body part that may be different than what society considers the “norm” can often be a cause for decreased self-esteem. So as with any form of peer pressure, especially in children; these incidents should be dealt with the outmost respect and attention.

Surgery is always an option; but firstly it should be made clear that being different is something to be cherished. More importantly that no one can make remarks about it.

During your consultation for an otoplasty in Limassol Dr. Economou will address any concerns you have about the operation and help you understand the steps involved.
