What Is Ear Pinning?

Ear pinning, also known as otoplasty, is a procedure that is used to improve the appearance of ears that are large or stick out too far from the head. By pinning the ear so that it lies flatter against the side of the head, the procedure can greatly enhance an individual’s appearance and self-esteem.

When to Choose Ear Pinning Surgery

Otoplasty is common for children between ages 4-14 who are embarrassed about or dissatisfied with the appearance of their ears. Once the ears have fully developed, otoplasty can be performed, which typically spares the child from ongoing teasing and bullying associated with protruding ears.

Ear Pinning Surgery with Dr. Jaibaji

In otoplasty, Dr. Jaibaji can reshape the ears, creating a normal appearance for children who have protruding ears.

First, he creates an incision behind the ear, allowing him to fold, reshape, or remove cartilage and position the ear closer to the head. The incisions are then sutured shut and bandages that typically stay in place for approximately one week are applied to the ears.
