Ear Pinning Surgery
Otoplasty is the reshaping of the ear. It is a surgical procedure for any number of reasons. Ears that are disproportionately large or small, imbalanced, damaged by birth defect, overly protruding or have been injured in an accident are all treatable through otoplasty.
Often this procedure is done on children to correct birth defects or abnormalities that have become more pronounced as a result of development.
Ear Pinning FAQs
What is ear pinning surgery?
The reshaping of the ear is a highly personal procedure and depends entirely on the situation of the patient and the patient’s wishes. Due to the highly visible nature of ears, the results of even slight correction can have a major effect on a patient’s feelings toward their appearance. Otoplasty rarely has any effect on hearing and is performed almost exclusively for cosmetic reasons.
