EAR PINNING SURGERY FAQ
The term “ear reduction” can refer to a general otoplasty (since the goal in many cases is to reduce the prominence of the ears), or it can refer more specifically to an earlobe reduction, which is generally intended to address sagging or drooping earlobes. Our plastic surgeons can help you to determine the best type of otoplasty to help you achieve your aesthetic goals.
Yes. After the ear tuck surgery is complete and the bandages have been removed, you’ll notice an immediate change—the results of which are generally permanent. That’s why it’s extremely important to work with a skilled cosmetic surgeon like Dr. Salameh or Dr. Saba who specializes in delivering excellent results.
An ear pinning procedure usually takes about 2 hours, although this can vary depending on the technique required for your particular procedure. In a typical scenario, the plastic surgeon will make one or more small incisions on the backs or inner creases of your ears and then sculpt or remove the exposed cartilage to reshape the ears. The incisions are generally made in inconspicuous areas to minimize any visible scarring.
An ear pinning procedure may be suitable if you are in generally good health and would like to improve the look of your ears in relation to your face. For example, if your ears are large in proportion to your head, or if your ears stick out more than you would like, an otoplasty may help. We can help you to make an informed decision during the initial consultation.
