What is Otoplasty (Ear Pinning)?
Otoplasty can be performed on children and adults, especially if they are self-conscious about protruding or oversized ears. Since ears are nearly fully grown by age four, the earlier the procedure is performed, the less teasing a child may have to endure. We also find that many adult patients make ear changes while having a face lift. Possibly, they’ve been able to hide their ears with a hairstyle, but are now able to make this change to feel more confident while combining it with another procedure.
What Are the Benefits of Otoplasty?
Otoplasty does not affect a person’s hearing, but provides cosmetic benefits to help a person feel more comfortable about the shape, size and position of the ears.
What Should I Expect from My Otoplasty Procedure?
Otoplasty is an outpatient procedure with incisions made behind the ears so there are no visible scars. If the ears are protruding, they may be rotated back, or if natural folds are missing, they can be re-created. Ears that have been injured and are thickened can be thinned and sculpted. After surgery, a pressure dressing is placed over the ears for 48 hours to hold them in place while they heal.
Our patients tolerate the surgery very well, as there is normally very little pain or bruising involved post-operatively. The area may be sensitive for about three weeks, and numbness may occur with the sensation returning slowly over a period of two to six months. This numbness is the reason there is generally no pain during recovery, which can make the surgery exceptionally well-tolerated for a child.Click here to see more
