Otoplasty / Ear Re-Shaping

Otoplasty, also referred to as ear re-shaping or ear pinning, is performed to adjust the shape and prominence of a person’s ears. This surgery is particularly helpful for those with ears that stick out far from the head. Otoplasty can be performed on its own or, if needed, in combination with another procedure. We will be able to determine if you are a good candidate for otoplasty or perhaps another facial rejuvenation procedure during a consultation at our practice.

During the otoplasty procedure, the cosmetic surgeon will place a small incision behind a patient’s ear. The surgeon will re-shape and adjust the contours of the underlying cartilage. In some cases, the surgeon will remove cartilage and then proceed to reshape the ear. The surgeon may also use an alternate otoplasty technique or make incisions in a different area depending on the patient’s unique situation.

When you visit our practice, we will be able to provide you with more in-depth post-surgical instructions following an otoplasty. In general, it is recommended that patients keep strenuous physical activity or activities that may result in bent ears to a minimum for at least a month after the surgical bandages are removed.
