Otoplasty or Ear Pinning, the Reshaping of Protruding Ears – Plastic Surgery

Otoplasty, also referred to as ear pinning, is a plastic surgery that reshapes protruding ears.

- A very wide angle between the outer part of the ear and the head causing the protruding shape

- An extremely large cartilage accentuating the ear protrusion even more

- Abnormal bends in the cartilage reliefs making the ears look flat

Am I a good candidate?

Otoplasty should be performed as soon as the ears reach their full development, which is around the age of five years.

However, adults can also undergo this surgery as long as they are in good health and have no pre-existing medical conditions.
I will evaluate the general health status of the patient and discuss the treatment accordingly.


How is it done?

The ear pinning surgery usually takes two hours for both ears depending on the nature of the deformity. It is performed under general or local anesthesia according to the patient’s preference.

How long is the recovery?

Patients can be discharged the same day of their surgery. Children can go back to school in one week and adults can resume work in three to five days but should avoid strenuous activities during recovery.
Swelling and bruising are normal effects of Otoplasty and normally disappear within ten days and a headband is to be worn during one week.Read More
