Default Non Surgical Ear Pinning

Is there any such thing as non surgical ear pinning or non surgical otoplasty? I cant afford thousands to pay for a surgery but these dumbo ears are killing me! For swimming I've had to cut my hair shorter and my ears show more. Would I be able to use a strong double sided tape or glue instead of plastic surgery?

Personally, I do not know of a nonsurgical procedure in lieu of otoplasty. Glue? I wouldn't do it. Double sided tape sounds like a temporary solution, that would be sticky and hurt to remove. Plus if you're swimming, I do not think double sided tape would hold up.

If you tried taping or sticking them back with something it would probably fold them in a peculiar looking way IMO, plus I doubt it would even hold them that long.

I don't think there's anything outside of surgery that can be done, hence non surgical ear pinning isn't an option

Your best option? Swim with long hair anyways

I thought that would be the answer but had to ask anyway. After graduation I will be able to pay for ear pinning surgery.

It is a tricky surgery, so choose your surgeon carefully. Make sure you have done a good amount of research as well. Many otoplasty patients end up extremely unhappy with their results, especially when the operation is performed on an adult.

Good luck!!!

The molds are only available for children 2 years old and under. What is your affiliation with the fulvic acid site?

Ear surgery especially cosmetic surgery of the ears is performed quite regularly. The ears are an important facial feature and both are on view when you look at a person's face so any irregularity or asymmetry as well as ears that stick out or droop is very obvious.BacklinksVault

Default Non-surgical ear pinning

I'm rather late in terms of the original poster for this thread, but I do have a little insight that might help anyone else who comes across it. I'm a photographer, and I've worked with a few models who were self-conscious about their ears. There are VERY temporary things you can do with superglue or double-sided tape, but short of surgery I've never heard of a permanent solution.

If you do go the superglue route, remember that it's going to last as long as the top layer of skin. For most people, that's 3-4 days. You won't be able to glue your ears back and then undo it. You just have to wait for the skin to slough off, and one model I worked with found out the hard way that she was allergic to something in the superglue. She had a very painful and uncomfortable couple of days as a result.

My best advice is to be careful and talk to a doctor before you try anything.

Ear reduction surgery for big ears generally takes about two hours' time for completion. However, this may vary depending upon the extent of correction required for individual cases.latestonlinecasinosforusplayers

If you're researching on Ear Pinning surgery or Otoplasty, I can give you useful information. Usually the one aspect you don't want to "stick out" is without a doubt your ears.seo services
