We just had to post this personal account of a patient who came to see Dr. Hilinski to get her ears made smaller in size. We are so honored to be part of these life-changing operations for patients like her!!
I started doing research for ear surgery about 20 years ago. I had a consultation with a surgeon and she recommended otoplasty, but I knew that’s not what I wanted. When I asked about making my ears SMALLER, she said it wasn’t possible. I lost hope and shelved the idea until last year when I started researching again, and after 20 years, and I happened upon Dr. Hilinski’s practice. I was amazed at what I saw. Not just otoplasty, but macrotia surgery to reduce the size of ears. I looked at his gallery and my mouth dropped. Where has Dr. Hilinski been my whole life?
Fast forward to the day of surgery, you wouldn’t have even known I was having surgery. Dr. Hilinski, Andrew and I listened to country music, chatted and laughed the whole time and I just had such a wonderful, fun experience. I felt comfortable and knew I was in great hands. Everything was explained in depth, from the initial consultation, to the pre-op, during surgery and even after. No question or concern went unanswered. His entire staff, Nicole, Ariana, and Andrew are just wonderful.
Today I had my post surgery appointment and after Dr. Hilinski removed the bandages, I cried tears of happiness. I couldn’t believe my eyes. My hair was up, and even though my ears were moderately swollen and bruised, I could see beyond that and that my ears were beautiful! I am so happy with the results, it’s an understatement. For the remainder of the day I couldn’t stop staring at my ears. I kept thinking, “So THIS is what it’s like to have normal sized ears…”
My new, “designer ears” will go perfectly with my designer shoes, ha! I can’t wait to fully heal so I can experiment with all sorts of updos, something I’ve never been able to do, but have always dreamed of.
Dr. Hilinski has changed my whole life and it’s only 3 days post-op. It was like waking up on Christmas morning, and what I imagine Cinderella felt like after the proverbial Bippity Boppity Boo… Only at the stroke of midnight my ears will still be fabulous.
I’m eternally grateful to Dr. Hilinski for working his magic as well as to his entire staff who are just SO pleasant and put up with my million plus questions. I’ve waited my whole life for this.. THANK YOU Dr. Hilinski for not only making it possible, but for making my dreams come true.
