Ear Reshaping Surgeon Double Board Certified in NYC
Ear Reshaping Surgery, called Otoplasty, is a cosmetic procedure, performed on both adults and children over 4 years of age, to improve the appearance of the ears. “Ear-pinning” is a procedure that repositions and/or removes the cartilage from behind the ear to bring the ear closer the head. Other Otoplasty procedures include reducing ear size, refining shape or even adding skin to the ear for a more aesthetic look.
For most adults, otoplasty can be performed under local anesthesia in the office. In children, otoplasty typically requires sedation of general anesthesia. In otoplasty, the incisions are made behind the ear, and the cartilage is trimmed or molded. Scars are not generally noticeable. Recovery time is immediate, although bandage may need to be worn for several days.
