Some people feel that their ears are too prominent and this can cause embarrassment and psychological distress. Being teased or bullied because of "sticking-out ears" can affect a person's self-confidence, their emotional well-being, and their behavior. This statement is so true because I felt it. Having called "BAT EARS" is not something that makes me feel proud or happy. It's a family genes, I know yet getting rid of it doesn't mean I don't embrace the family's heritage whatsoever, I just wanted to have a peaceful life without people teasing me. And above all, I wanted to look beautiful and feel confident.
The outer ear is normally positioned on the side of the head at an angle of about 20 to 35 degrees. If the angle is more than 35 degrees, they will appear to "stick out."
They occur for a number of reasons:
Overdevelopment of the cartilage: if the pinna has too much cartilage, it is more likely to be prominent.
Underdevelopment of the cartilage: the ridge of cartilage at the top of the ear does not fold properly during development. The outer edge of the ear does not fold in toward the head but sticks outward instead.
Injury: prominent ears can result from an injury to the ears.
***Before and After Otoplasty***
I am extremely happy with the result, DRK have definitely made their promise to give me the normal ears and get rid of the bat ears.
It took a week to have a full recovery, although a scar may be still visible at this moment. Though it will face away soon and become a normal ear crease with the help of the ointment that DRK gave me.
This will be a new chapter of my life where I can be stress-free without bat ears! I am gaining confidence with how I look, and my family is very happy with the result as well. They are all happy to see me happy.
See, invisible scar! but gradually it will soon fade away completely! This is just a week after the otoplasty surgery and it is almost gone!
Thank you so much DRK for making my dream come true! Now I can start a fresh life without the bullying and low self-esteem. Thanks to you, I can be whoever I want to be.
