Providing the patient realises that a good outcome is correction, and not always absolute perfection (since consummate ultra-accuracy not always achievable), this procedure may be considered as one of the most successful in the cosmetic surgery field. If you have discussed the procedure & your expectations with your plastic surgeon in greater detail before surgery, you will be happy with the outcome. By correcting protruding or deformed ears, the ear reshaping surgery may also contribute to higher self-confidence & self-esteem.
