Facial Services / Ear Pinning – Otoplasty

Otoplasty (Ear Pinning) in Atlanta, GA

If you are unhappy with the appearance of your ears or earlobes, an otoplasty (ear pinning) procedure may be right for you. Otoplasty is an effective cosmetic procedure for children and adults that can change the shape of your ears and/or to bring them closer to your head if they protrude further than you would like.

Dr. Aaron Fletcher, Board Certified, Otolaryngologist will discuss your specific facial enhancement goals and how you can shape your ears.

Who is a Candidate for Ear Pinning (Otoplasty)?

Dr. Fletcher advises patients that they may be a good candidate for ear shaping if you are unhappy with the size (prominent ear) and shape or your ears. You might feel that they stick out too far (protruding ear), have an unsightly shape, or are too big for your face. Ear surgery can give you more confidence and balance other features of your face to enhance your appearance.

Some children also get otoplasty because of the shape of their ears. Children with large earlobes or ears that stick out more than average can be victims of teasing by their peers. Dr. Fletcher will advise you if your child is a suitable candidate for ear shaping surgery.

Some adult patients may select complementary procedures to achieve their overall facial reshaping and renewal goals. These procedures include:

  • Fat grafting or facial liposculpture
  • Cheek augmentation / augmentation
  • Lip augmentation with fillers

During your consultation with Dr. Fletcher, he will discuss your concerns and thoroughly review your ear shaping surgery.

How Is Otoplasty (Ear Pinning) Performed, What Is the Recovery Time, and What Are the Expected Results?

Your consultation starts with discussing your goals for otoplasty, ear pinning, or ear shaping surgery and the desired results.

The surgery can be done under local or general anesthesia as an outpatient procedure. Dr. Fletcher carefully makes all incisions behind the ears so there are no visible scars later. You might have swelling for one to two weeks after the surgery, with a numb sensation for up to three months. You can see the results after a week when the dressing is removed from the surgery wounds.*

Expert ear shaping gives patients of all ages more confidence in their appearance!
