OTOPLASTY – THE COMPLETE GUIDE TO EAR PINNING
Otoplasty is cosmetic surgery used to correct the form and shape of the ear. This can be required or recommended for patients who have a defective, deformed, or completely missing external ear. Ear issues can be present due to trauma as well as genetics. A surgeon makes corrections by creating a more proportionate, contoured, visually attractive external ear.
Ear correction surgery is cosmetic surgery to alter the size or shape of the ears, or pin them back if they stick out. Generally, ear correction surgery is safe and most people are happy with the results. However there are risks to consider, and it may be expensive. Pinning back the ears is known as an otoplasty or pinnaplasty. It’s usually done on children and young teenagers, although adults can also have it done.
