Protruding ears are a common concern, and they often start to bother children at an early age. Otoplasty or ear pinning repositions ears closer to the head. It can also correct the size or shape of your ears to make them more proportionate. This procedure can have dramatic effects on an individual’s self-confidence.
What is Ear Pinning (Otoplasty)?
Otoplasty is a procedure to correct the shape, position, or size of the ears. Many people want to reposition ears that protrude outward. Dr. Coville finds otoplasty a deeply satisfying procedure with life-changing results. Ear pinning can be performed on adults and children, with children often experiencing the greatest benefits. In addition to repositioning protruding ears, otoplasty can resize large ears or reshape abnormally shaped ears.
