Ear pinning surgery, or pinnaplasty, is ear surgery where the ears are pinned back to restore a more aesthetic appearance to ears that are sticking out or protruded.
Ear pinning surgery, or pinnaplasty, is very short surgery that can take place under local anaesthetic in less than an hour.
During the ear surgery, the ears are pinned back following an excision and reshaping of the underlying ear cartilage. Pinning ears back does not involve much scarring, and any scars can be hidden in the ear folds.
Ear Reshaping refers to a range of common cosmetic surgery procedures designed to correct the size and shape of the ear and ear lobe. Many people who dislike the shape or size of their ears develop habits to mask the problem (e.g. wearing their hair long), often being unaware of the quick, safe and effective solutions provided by surgery. Typical procedures include pinnaplasty (to pin back ears), ear reduction (to reduce the size of the ears) as well as the correction of a range of ear deformities either apparent at birth (easily corrected by moulding the ear as it grows) or acquired later in life through trauma, piercing, surgery or cancer.
When it comes to making a decision about which provider or surgeon to select as your chosen preference for your Otoplasty procedure, safety and quality of care are typically the most important considerations to think about, alongside any Clinic and surgeon’s level of experience with Otoplasty procedures.
