What is Ear Pinning?

Ears that protrude outward can affect self-esteem, especially in children. Ear pinback surgery (also known as otoplasty) is a cosmetic treatment that helps to reposition the ears and create a more balanced appearance. Dr. Raj TerKonda is a cosmetic facial surgeon in Denver, CO who has assisted many patients to overcome their fear of showing their ears by performing this surgery. Otoplasty at Cherry Creek Face and Skin allows an individual to proudly show their face at any angle. If you or your child are worried about ear protrusion, schedule a consultation with Dr. TerKonda to find out about your options for cosmetic ear surgery.

How is an Ear Pinback performed?

Ear pinback surgery can be performed on adult patients; however, it is most common among children and is recommended before the start of elementary school. Otoplasty can safely be performed on a child as young as six. Ear pinning is typically an outpatient procedure done under anesthesia. Incisions are typically made behind the ear to reshape the cartilage, and sometimes permanent sutures are used to pin the ears to the head at a less obvious angle. Our team will provide recovery instructions following the procedure. It is important to not touch the ears or lay on the ears following surgery. The first follow-up appointment after surgery is typically within 3 – 5 days. At this time, we will remove the bandages and check on the healing progress of the ears.
