Ear Pinning

(Otoplasty)

Ear Pinning for children or adults can set prominent ears back closer to the head and reduce the size of large ears. Surgery may also be helpful for “lop ear,” “cupped ear” and “shell ear,” large or stretched earlobes, and lobes with creases and wrinkles or stretched-out piercings.

The operation can be performed on children as young as five years of age when the ears are fully grown to minimize teasing in school. The procedure may be performed in a hospital, office-based facility or an outpatient surgery center under general or local anesthesia.
