Ear surgery is performed to correct misshapen or poorly formed ears and bring protruding ears closer to the head. With “ear pinning”, or otoplasty, an incision is made behind the ear. The cartilage is sculpted and sutured to stay back (no pins are actually used). This procedure can be done at any time but is often best around age six to prevent ridicule at school. It drastically improves overall appearance and self-confidence. The procedure is done under a general anesthetic in the child.
In an adult, otoplasty can be performed in our office surgical suite under local anesthesia with oral sedation, reducing cost significantly. Prominent ear, cauliflower ears, cup ears, Spock ears can all be address with Otoplasty in our Fort Wayne office.
