Ears frame our faces, so they play a huge role in our overall appearance. When ears are asymmetrical in size or placement, these differences are can be very apparent. An Otoplasty – or cosmetic ear pinning surgery – can help you get the look you’ve always wanted!
When trying to hide your ears, you may keep your hair long, wear hats, or make other changes even if they may not match your preferred style. Otoplasty, or ear pinning, can correct ears that stick too far out, the size of your ears, and asymmetry. The otoplasty procedure can help you achieve an aesthetic balance that you’ll love, so you can focus on looking how you want to look instead of hiding.
Otoplasty is performed in the Donaldson Plastic Surgery office under local anesthesia. The ear cartilage is remodeled and anchored closer to the head for a cleaner, tighter appearance. If one ear extends farther than the other, it is treated more aggressively so that both sides are equal after surgery. The incisions that are made are completely hidden behind the ears.
Otoplasty is a straightforward procedure that results in minimal pain and downtime. After surgery, you will wear a compression band over your ears for about 4 weeks. You will apply an ointment to the area for about two weeks following your Otoplasty, and you may have activity restrictions. Dr. Sieffert will discuss a recovery process that is unique to you
We will see you in the office for your first follow-up appointment about one week after your procedure!
