Ear Reshaping (Pinning)

Ear pinning surgery, or otoplasty, is usually performed to set prominent ears back closer to the head.

Many patients feel their ears are too big, when in reality the proportions are normal but the ear is set too far from the head and the surface is more visible from in front view or from behind the person.

This appearance of a prominent ear may be caused by the lack of a fold in the upper ear cartilage, enlargement of the lower ear concha cartilage or both. The correct diagnosis is crucial to the surgery chosen and the final outcome.

Surgical correction involves an outpatient surgery either under sedation with local anesthesia or, more commonly, under general anesthesia. Bandages are removed in the office the next day and are replaced with a headband to support and protect the ears for an additional few days. Stitches are removed at 10 days after surgery.

Your Confidence 

You will no longer have to be self-conscious about your ears or how this effected your facial  balancing. Otoplasty can be performed in conjunction with other facial surgeries. Together with Dr. Lynch, you will decide which procedures she will perform in order to enhance the symmetry of your face.

The Otoplasty Surgery (ear reshaping) consultation can be scheduled in either of our practices locations in Chevy Chase & Easton, Maryland.

Unfortunately, ear pinning surgery is considered a cosmetic procedure and therefore is not covered by health insurance. The specific risks of ear pinning surgery for every patient vary.  They can be determined only at the time of your private consultation. Although many plastic surgery procedures have some degree of risk, minor complications generally do not affect the outcome. Major complications are rare.
