If you or one of your children are uncomfortable with the shape and/or size of your ears, you are not alone. Even a slight distortion in your ears can lead to self-consciousness, and possible teasing from others.
Otoplasty, more commonly known as ear pinning, is a relatively minor surgical procedure that helps minimize the appearance of protruding or oversized ears without having an adverse effect on hearing.
Otoplasty involves altering the external part of the ear by removing the necessary amount of skin and by plicating the ear’s cartilage to achieve the desired results. Otoplasty can also be performed to bring protruding ears closer to the head in cases commonly known as “Bat ears”. Incisions are made in the natural crease where the ear meets the head resulting in no visible scars.
