Children are not always the cute little angels we like to think they are. Sadly, when a peer looks different, some children can become cruel bullies, not even realizing or caring about the emotional damage they inflict on each other. The internet is full of stories about once energetic children bubbling over with personality who became withdrawn, unenthusiastic children trying not to draw attention to themselves. Our face is our first impression to the world. That impression can be difficult to overcome when a child has large ears. Usually, large ears are not a problem for a child until he or she starts school. Then the experiences of childhood and life are greatly affected when big ears are the center of all the jokes on the playground.
Plastic Surgery Lubbock Children and Adults Love
Otoplasty is plastic surgery that reshapes the ear. Maybe your child was born with protruding ears or ears that are too big for his or her head. Ear surgery can easily fix that. Ear procedures are relatively simple compared to other plastic surgeries, but the results for the patient’s appearance can be dramatic. With techniques to reduce the size of or reshape the ears, a child can immediately feel confident in his or her looks.
