The success rate of any type of cosmetic surgery is relative to the individual having a procedure. The experience of the selected surgeon can greatly affect the outcome, thus leading to an increase or decrease in the perceived success for the client. A skilled facial plastic surgeon can achieve a success rate well over 95% in most cases.
To increase your chances for a successful outcome for otoplasty, or ear surgery, it is important to choose a surgeon that has experience in making the specific changes that you wish. You can talk with several surgeons before making a decision, and be sure to ask to see some before and after pictures as well.
A good Los Angeles ear surgeon should be willing to discuss your potential results with you while letting you know what you can and cannot achieve with an otoplasty.
