Otoplasty (Ear Pinning)
Otoplasty or ear pinning surgery is generally performed to pin back and reduce the size of large and/or protruding ears that cause embarrassment to children and adults alike.
The surgery may be performed on children as young as five or six when the ears are almost fully formed. Parents may consider an Otoplasty procedure when a child is subjected to schoolyard teasing which can potentially impact negatively on the child’s self-esteem. Dr Vlad will discuss with you the surgery, your expectations and goals and possible risks, prior to any surgery being performed. View examples of our successful procedures in our Otoplasty Gallery.
