When Getting Otoplasty is It Possible to Choose How Far the Ears Are Pinned Back? I Only Want my Ears Put Back a Little

+1

Yes, I do this all the time and allow the patient to look at the ears before I finish the surgery so that it is as he or she would like.

Find a plastic surgeon with ELITE credentials who performs hundreds of facial and ear correction surgeries each year. Then look at the plastic surgeon's website before and after photo galleries to get a sense of who can deliver the results. Kenneth Hughes, MD Los Angeles, CA

Otoplasty for only minimal results

 The degree of setback is variable when the surgery is performed, so make sure you talk to your surgeon about your concerns. Understand that there is some flexibility with the healing process.
