We had a local surgeon do an otoplasty on my son. We were specific that we wanted his ears all the way back...they still stick out and we feel the surgeon did not do a good job. Is it reasonable to ask for a revision and how do I do so without insulting the doctor? I do not feel I should have to pay any more money. Family and friends all agree the ears do not look great.
Ask a Surgeon
With respect and regards, I had an otoplasty procedure nine months ago but am not satisfied with the results. After three months, I changed my doctor and had a second otoplasty. It has been six months after I performed my second otoplasty. Still I am not satisfied because both my ears are over corrected with irregular surface which does not suit my face structure. Also, they are over corrected ear lobes whereas the upper parts of the ears are round in shape which looks like a phone shape ears. There is also a fully visible asymmetry in both ears. This condition has severally affected my self-esteem and I am self- conscious about it. Now I am planning for a third surgery while expecting much improved results which not only appeal aesthetically but also looks as much as normal and symmetrical as possible. Will it be possible for much improved results in third time surgery with no visible scars??
Waiting and expecting an optimistic response.
