Otoplasty, Ear Pinning
Protruding ears can be difficult to hide and may cause ridicule throughout your life. Children tease those with bigger ears, calling them names like Dumbo, and even adults can be cruel. Otoplasty is a surgical option to reduce the appearance of protruding or prominent ears, reshaping and pulling them closer to the head through ear pinning. Dr. Joseph Rousso offers otoplasty and protruding ear correction at our office in New York City. He gives our patients, both young and old, the appearance they desire with ear plastic surgery for improved self-confidence.
Protruding Ear Correction
Surgical treatment of the prominent ears can be done as young as age 5. This is the age where the ear is mature enough for successful surgery to occur and an age that avoids teasing and bullying. Prominent ear surgery (otoplasty or ear pinning) is also often requested by adults who feel that they need to hide their ears by wearing their hair down. Dr. Rousso offers ear correction surgery and is a leader in this specialized area, creating results that look natural and are balanced with the other features of the head and face.
Big ears or those that stick out from the head are common, but it does not make it any easier for those with prominent ears to know they are not alone. Whenever a feature makes you feel self-conscious about your appearance, it can impact many areas of your life. Otoplasty and ear pinning are surgical options that can create smaller, well-formed ears or lay them closer to the head. If having this procedure makes you feel more confident in your appearance, it is a worthwhile investment.
