Please contact us for more information, or to schedule a consultation for ear surgery (otoplasty).

Ear Pinning Surgery (Otoplasty)

Otoplasty, also referred to as ear pinning surgery, can alter the position, shape, and size of the ears. Individuals with prominent ears can undergo otoplasty to have the ears surgically repositioned to lie more flatly against the sides of the head. In this procedure, fatty deposits and cartilage structures that cause the appearance of oversized or irregularly formed ears are eliminated or sculpted through a small incision along the outside edge of the ear. Any residual scarring from the procedure is typically well-hidden and virtually undetectable.

Results of Ear Surgery

After undergoing otoplasty, prominent ears appear more proportional and suitably positioned, making them far less noticeable. Ear pinning surgery can not only reduce the appearance of prominent ears, it can also have a very positive effect on our patients’ self-esteem and help them feel less self-conscious about the look of their ears.

Cosmetic Ear Lobe Repair

We offer cosmetic ear lobe repair to improve the appearance of earlobes that are irregularly formed, or have been torn or stretched. Using a few simple surgical techniques, our surgeons are able to restore a more natural shape to damaged earlobes. It is also possible to alter the shape of earlobes to make them more aesthetically pleasing.
