Discrete & Effective Ear Pinning Surgery

The ears are the frame of the face, so they play a noticeable role in our overall appearance. When ears are asymmetrical in size or placement, these differences can become very apparent. Patients who try to hide their ears tend to keep their hair long, wear hats or make other changes even if they may not match their preferred style. An Otoplasty – or cosmetic ear-pinning surgery – can help you get the balance you’ve always wanted!

What Is An Otoplasty?

Otoplasty, or ear pinning, is a surgical procedure designed to 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.

Frequently Asked Questions

This procedure is typically performed 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.

The incisions are meticulously closed with sutures by Dr. Michelle Sieffert once the necessary modifications have been made. Patients will receive post-operative instructions, including guidelines for care and recovery to ensure the greatest results. Mild swelling, bruising, and discomfort are common after the surgery, but these symptoms typically subside within a few weeks.

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
