Otoplasty, sometimes called “ear pinning” surgery, is most commonly performed for protruding or prominent ears. In addition to its cosmetic benefits, the procedure can give a real emotional boost to a patient troubled by prominent ears. For children, this procedure is typically performed once the ears have reached full size, usually around 5 years of age or prior to starting school if that is a concern.
This is surprisingly a very easy procedure which is not painful to most patients, however bruising and swelling are common after these procedures. It is best to stay out of work or school for one week with no major social engagements for 2-3 weeks.
