Are your ears pinned back, or do you secretly wish they were? Do you want your child to avoid the pain of being teased about their protruding ears? Although otoplasty, or ear pinning surgery, is typically performed on younger children, it is frequently performed on adults as well. Otoplasty will bring the ear closer to the head and reduce the size of seemingly large ears.

Whether the cosmetic ear surgery is for you or your child, it should never be done without first consulting a highly qualified and experienced plastic surgeon. The doctor will determine the most effective technique to achieve the desired results. The procedure itself is fairly simple. An incision is made in the back of the ear so the cartilage can be sculpted and folded, allowing the ear to lie closer to the head. Stitches are used to close the incision. The head will be wrapped with a rather bulky bandage for several days. This will help the newly sculpted ear to mold and heal properly. After the healing process, the result will be a more overall natural look.


Did you know that ear deformities are one of the most frequently overlooked infant disfigurements? Statistical data shows that infant ear deformities occur between 20% and 35% of all births. Studies have shown that ear deformities can negatively impact a child’s physical and emotional development. Children with ear deformities can suffer peer hazing, ridicule, and abuse. As a result, they often exhibit low self-esteem, anxiety, elevated social isolation, and emotional withdrawal. Infants and children no longer have to wait until they are old enough for surgery; the EarWell System offers an attractive new option. With a success rate of over 90%, the EarWell System eliminates the need for you and your child to wait and hope that the ears will self-correct.
