Ear Pinning (Otoplasty)

San Antonio Otoplasty Children and adults with protruding ears often develop self conscious feelings which can be crippling. Otoplasty, or "ear pinning" helps to help make the ears less noticeable, helping patients more confidence in their appearance.

A procedure known as otoplasty, or ear pinning, is used to correct the size and/or placement of one's ears, and is usually done to set prominent ears back closer to the head. While most patients undergo ear pinning by the time they turn 14, it is becoming more common for adults to request surgical ear pinning. Otoplasty can reduce the size of the ears in addition to repositioning them.

The specific methods Dr. Young uses in ear pinning can vary slightly based upon your needs and desired outcome. The scars resulting from ear pinning are quite small and easily hidden behind the ear by the crease where the ear meets the head, and will fade nicely with time. Ear pinning is often a life-changing event for both men and women.
