Otoplasty can be rewarding for all ages.
An "ear pinning" procedure or otoplasty is a reliable and effective technique for addressing prominent ears. You have more prominence of the left side as compared to the right, and most commonly this is related to the position that the round portion of your ear cartilage takes – the conchae bowl- as it connects to your head. This and other anatomic abnormalities of the ear cartilages can be modified in a simple procedure performed under local anesthesia. We commonly perform these procedures for children with ear deformities, as well as adults- many who have wanted to address this problem their entire life. In short, have a consultation with an experienced facial cosmetic surgeon experienced in otoplasty, and I have no doubt you will be able to undergo a procedure that makes a substantially positive difference in your appearance – good luck!
