Pinnaplasty

Pinnaplasty before and after pictureProminent Ear Surgery

Some people are born with ears which look prominent as they don't lie flat against the side of the head. This is due to the proper folds failing to develop. This can cause teasing, especially during the earlier years at school, and can lead to loss of self confidence.

The problem can be solved with surgery. The missing folds are re-formed into the cartilage so that the ears lie close to the side of the head. The operation is known as a pinnaplasty or an otoplasty, and is most often done during childhood (after six years of age). It is carried out so that the scars are hidden in the crease between the ear and the scalp.
