Otoplasty (Ear-Pinning)

Otoplasty (Ear-Pinning)

Dr. Sarmela Sunder is a top otoplasty ear plastic surgeon practicing in Beverly Hills, CA

Ear pinning, also called otoplasty, features refining the shape, position, and proportion of one’s ear to provide a more balanced look to the rest of a patient’s features. This small change to the ear can make such a dramatic difference to a patient’s overall appearance.

What are the benefits of Otoplasty surgery?

Refine size of one’s ears

If your ears are too prominent, ear pinning surgery can make ears smaller in size and provide a more balanced look to your face.

Refine or repair earlobes

As we age earlobes can sometimes naturally crease or have some wrinkling. Otoplasty can correct the appearance of the earlobe and give a more natural look. Torn earlobes can be repaired and returned to their normal state through a quick and simple surgical procedure.

Correct ear asymmetry

Some patients have asymmetry that can be caused by either injury or be from birth. Otoplasty can correct any asymmetry by reconstructing a missing ear and restoring the ears appearance. 

What does Otoplasty entail?

Ear surgery involves making a small incision behind the ear to decrease the size of the ear by removing cartilage and excess skin to achieve a more optimal ear shape and size.
