I always hated my ears. They looked like little bowls. Dr. Gikas even told me I had a deformity called Cup ear, where I was missing the anti helix of my ear. He Corrected that for me, now I wear my hair up every single day, hand to god. :)
I had my otoplasty done while I was awake. I know, you're thinking, WHAT! How scary! , but NO, not at all. Dr. Gikas made sure I didn't feel anything, and he stopped every now and then and gave me a mirror to ask me how I like my ears so far. Hes really a great doctor, very precise and my ears look GREAT!
