Ear Pinning (Otoplastic Surgery)

  • otoplasty

    Many children are born with ears that protrude too far from the head. This causes the “dumbo-ear” appearance and is often embarrassing and traumatic. The problem is corrected by a combination of stitching and reshaping the ear cartilage, to bring it closer to the head. Also known as “ear pinning,” it is a common cosmetic surgery for adults and children with protruding ears.
