If you have low self-confidence or self-esteem issues because of protruding or misshapen ears, talk to Dr. Khattab about the benefits of otoplasty, or ear pinning surgery. Ear surgery is an attractive option for many patients who want to improve their appearance and can be a viable treatment option for both young and older patients. We can reshape and resize your ears to create a more attractive profile. Here is a closer look at the benefits of ear surgery:

What to Expect with Ear Surgery

Ear surgery is a relatively simple procedure that is performed on an outpatient basis. It can be performed in one to three hours under general anesthesia. Dr. Khattab will adjust the angle of the ears and make very minimal incisions around the ears to ensure fast healing. The ears are repositioned to create a more attractive appearance and profile. Results are permanent and the incisions heal relatively quickly.

The key reasons to undergo this procedure include:

  • Correct overly large ears
  • Change the angles of protruding ears
  • Restore the effects of a previous ear surgery
  • Restore facial symmetry and balance
  • Boost self-confidence and self-esteem
  • Even correcting a few minor deformities and changing the angles of the ears very slightly can make a significant difference. Many patients undergoing this procedure report feeling better about their appearance overall and enjoying a boost of self-confidence. Patients may need to take about a week off work for recovery and will be provided with specific post-op surgery instructions.

Are You a Good Candidate for Ear Surgery?

You may be a good candidate for ear surgery if you have protruding ears that have created a facial imbalance or disproportionate look. Many patients with very large and protruding ears are self-conscious about their appearance and may try and hide their ears under hats or by styling their hair in a certain way. Fortunately, ear surgery can correct these problems and restore facial balance. The ears will appear more symmetrical and we can literally pin them back to create a more attractive facial profile.
