What is otoplasty?
Commonly referred to as ear pinning, otoplasty is a cosmetic procedure in which the size, proportion, or position of the ears is surgically altered. While the outcome of ear reshaping surgery varies widely depending on each patient’s desired results, this procedure can serve to improve self-confidence, especially for those within their formative years.
Large, oversized ears can be trimmed to complement the patient’s facial features. Ear pinning is a low-risk procedure available to children, teenagers, and adults. The ear pinning procedure can also create symmetry between ears that are irregularly positioned or flatten ears that stick out.
