Since I can remember, I have been laughed at for my ears. I really got traumatized, especially high school was a horror for me. I even tried to glue my ears to my head, I never wore a ponytail and I just hated my ears. A friend of mine had surgery done by Dr Marco Carmona last year and she... READ MORE

I always suffered with large ears that stuck out and as a result suffered all the negative things that come with it growing up. I let it eat away at me and bother me a lot more than what it should have, once I heard about this procedure I made it my priority to save up and get it done. Dr kang... READ MORE

My partner and I are planning a trip to SE Asia at the end of this year, it will be our last holiday together before trying to have a baby so I thought it might be good timing to get my ears done. It costs $6000+ in Australia, something I realistically won't be able to afford any time in the... READ MORE

From when I was very little, I had always wanted my ears pinned; I would get bullied and constantly called names because of the way they looked. Having my ears pinned back was one of the best decisions I have ever made. I'm loads more confident within myself and extremely happy with how they... READ MORE

So I've finally decided to get this done after years of deliberation. I feel great about it so far, will update as the process continues, as of now I am set for surgery on the 18th of November with a pre-op sit down with the doc this coming Monday, the 26th of Oct.... READ MORE

Hello all! I am 25 and getting an otoplasty surgery tomorrow. Here's my story... I have always had elf-life ears (see picture. haha). It's bothered me at various times in life, but never been a source of teasing or anything like that, because I have really long hair and bangs and so they never... READ MORE

I never grew my hair until I was 19 just to hide my ears... Once I started growing my hair and tried a ponytail, I realised that it was my ears that was spoiling my look.. and that's the reason I started thinking of Otoplasty... I am 29 right now and 2 months post my first ever otoplasty... READ MORE

Bangkok 2014 was the first time I had my ears surgically pinned back. (Otoplasty) I was quite surprised at Clinic at the Bangkok hospital where the consultation and surgery took place. I found it a little difficult to get across to the doctor what I wanted but as we had Medical Solutions guide... READ MORE

I wish to have a normal ear... Anyone knows who can insert hole in my ear and pin my ear back? Make it look normal. I can't be able to do challenging things. I have to do things that are so meaningless. I can't get a good job, because appearance is everything to some people. I'm 44 years... READ MORE

I was born with several malformations of the ears, (basically elf/pixie ears) that folded out from my head at a diagonal angle, as well as lacking the anti-helical fold on both of my ears. My first otoplasty was around the age of 8. The surgery successfully gave me the anti-helical fold in both... READ MORE

I am a 16 year old Hispanic male. Dr. Rahban performed otoplasty (ear surgery) on me. My ears were not in proportion; one was bigger than the other and the bigger one would noticeably stick out. I made a serious decision at age 15, I spoke to my mother and she spoke to my dad because I didn't... READ MORE

My only regret is not doing this sooner! I am so happy with my new ears. I can finally wear my hair back and not worry about my ears sticking out. Barely any down time, you just need to wear a headband following surgery. Also very minimal pain and discomfort thanks to Dr. Wise and his amazing staff! READ MORE

I had been teased my whole life for my prominent ears and it wrecked my self confidence. I couldn't wear my hair up in fear that I would get made fun of. I felt like when people looked at me, all they saw was ears. Even though people told me they didn't think they stuck out "that bad" I was... READ MORE

Ever since I can remember, I had issues with the way my ears looked (I had prominent ears with one sticking out way more than the other & missing the natural fold). I was always teased at school, but beyond that, I was not happy with them myself. Most times that I was in front of the mirror, I... READ MORE

I went into my consultation very skeptical about having a doctor in Alaska work on my face. This man is truly wonderful at what he does and I wouldn't go to anyone else. I trust him wholeheartedly. It's been 4 weeks since my surgery and it's healing very nice.. I'm grateful for him and his... READ MORE

I just had otoplasty about a week ago. I've always had large, protruding ears and have been self conscious about them. The recovery has been difficult but I hope it's worth it. I was tired of not having any confidence. I know it's soon but my ear lobes stick out too much. I think I haave... READ MORE

So far, I have just gone through the consultation. Everyone in the office was very nice. The doctor was direct in his evaluation of the situation and talked me out of another procedure that I was thinking about getting because he didn't think it would be very useful. I will be getting my ears... READ MORE

I am considering going for a ear reduction of the top pole (Scapha) and would like to know if someone who has gone through similar and would like to share there experience? Are there any risks associated with this type of surgery other than scaring which I have been told is well hidden or is... READ MORE

As I had aged and lost my hair the large and prominent ears I had from childhood, which had not caused me any concern in my life previously, began to look even bigger and became even more prominent. I was more conscious of them than ever before and found myself worrying about my appearance and... READ MORE

After twenty-two years living with an otoplasty which went horribly wrong, I finally found a surgeon who was able to fix it beyond my wildest expectations.Background:Both ears were overly corrected (too close to my head) and with completely different shapes.The right ear looked as if it was...
