Otoplasty (Ear Pinning Surgery) Atlanta
Cosmetic ear pinning surgery, otherwise known as an otoplasty or cosmetic ear surgery, is the procedure to correct misshapenness or deformities of the ear. There is a wide range of issues such as overly prominent ears, cup shaped ears, or large ears. The issue may involve one or both ears, and asymmetry is very common. Most of these conditions are hereditary; however, some are a result of trauma or previous surgeries.
Ear irregularities can be very noticeable , specially during initial personal encounters. They are a common cause of teasing and psychological issues among children. If there are concerns, it is recommended that the issues be addressed before they leave long-lasting effects on the individual’s self-esteem.
Potential Results of an Otoplasty
Otoplasty is one of the most intricate surgeries in the field of plastic and reconstructive surgery. Depending on the underlying issues, otoplasty can address prominent ears with lack of definition by reducing the projection and placing permanent contouring sutures to shape the ears.
In the case of oversized ears, we can reduce the size to make them more harmonious to the rest of the face and the contralateral ear. However, otoplasty does not include the procedures associated with an absent ear or abnormal position (e.g. lower set ears). If you are concerned about the appearance of yours or your children’s ears, book a consult with Dr. Abolmaali to discuss options to address your specific concerns.
