By undergoing Otoplasty, also known as ear pinning surgery, your ears can become sleeker and closer to the contours of your head. Ear pinning is a cosmetic surgery that aims to improve the shape, position, and proportion of the ears. It can be performed on adults and children, as young as five years old, under local or general anaesthesia.

You are a good candidate for ear pinning if:

  • You have no life-threatening condition
  • You have misshapen ears caused by injury
  • Your ears are too big or too small
  • Your ears are drooping or protruding
  • You have cauliflower or cupped ears
  • You are deeply bothered by the prominence of your ears

You are expected to carefully discuss with your surgeon how an Otoplasty is done to understand your options and clear out your expectations.

When choosing a surgeon, it is imperative to look for a board-certified specialist. The surgeon must have completed extensive surgical training after medical school and residency training.

During the procedure, your surgeon will create an incision behind the ear and remove the necessary amounts of cartilage and skin. In certain cases, a surgeon will cut the cartilage to shape it into a more attractive form and then pin the cartilage back with stitches. The entire procedure takes approximately 1 to 3 hours.

 

Benefits of ear pinning surgery:

  • Enhanced self-esteem
  • Better proportioned ears
  • Improved quality of life
  • Increased physical attractiveness
