Men and women who have ears that are overly large or that protrude visibly from the head may be able to correct these conditions with ear pinning, or otoplasty, surgery. At REAL Cosmetic and Plastic Surgery, our ear pinning procedures can help correct misshapen ears and reposition them closer to the head.
Serving the Melbourne area, our ear pinning procedures at REAL Cosmetic and Plastic Surgery are performed by Mr. Stephen Salerno. Contact us today to schedule a consultation and find out how ear pinning can help improve the balance between your ears and the rest of your facial features.
What are Ear Pinning and Otoplasty?
Ear pinning is a cosmetic procedure that brings protruding ears closer to the head for a more natural-looking appearance. Although incision patterns may depend on your individual preferences and condition, incisions can be hidden within the natural folds and creases of the ears for minimal visible scarring. In most cases, the ears are held into place with permanent sutures.
Otoplasty refers to procedures to correct the shape, position, or proportion of the ears. The extent of these procedures can depend on the level of correction desired, and your treatment options can be discussed with Mr. Salerno and our medical team during your consultation at our Melbourne office.
How are Ear Pinning and Otoplasty Performed?
The extent of these procedures will depend on your individual condition. During ear pinning and otoplasty procedures:
- Excess cartilage may be removed
- The outer ear fold may be resculpted
- The ears may be brought closer to the head
- The symmetry of the ears may be corrected
During your consultation with Mr. Salerno and our medical team, patients who qualify for these procedures will have a customized surgical plan created for them so they know what to expect during surgery.
Who is a Good Candidate for Ear Pinning and Otoplasty?
Men and women who have overly large ears, ears that are misshapen, or ears that protrude visibly from the head and who are seeking surgical correction of these conditions may be candidates for these procedures. Scheduling a consultation with Mr. Salerno and our medical team is the best way to determine if these procedures are right for you. We will evaluate your condition based on several factors, including your overall health and medical history, aesthetic goals and more.
This procedure typically has long-lasting results with a well-tolerated healing period.
