OTOPLASTY

otoplasty / Ear pinning Surgery

 

What is it?

Surgery on the ears is known as an otoplasty.  During this surgery, the skin and/or cartilage of the ear are shaped and sculpted to give the desired appearance.  There are a number of complexities to the surgery and Dr. Toranto examines his patients and then explains what the unique element(s) for each person’s surgery would be. 

 

Why is it Done?

A few of the reasons patients desire an otoplasty procedure include:

 

  • Prominent ears

  • Misshapen ears

  • Enlarged earlobes from disc earrings

Anesthesia?

An otoplasty may involve local anesthesia or sedation by an anesthesiologist.

 

Visibility:

Many of the incisions are placed so that they are hidden, though wearing eyeglasses may be limited for a short period of time after the surgery.
