When ears are too large, protrude extensively or are just uneven, it is important to find experienced doctors to treat the condition. At Cosmetic Medicine and Surgery at Mercy our plastic surgeons have the expertise and skill to perform otoplasty or ear surgery. Our top surgeons have been recognized in the Baltimore area for their outstanding plastic surgery skills to improve the way you look.
Otoplasty, also known as ear pinning, or ear shaping is a common plastic surgery procedure used to re-position and/or reshape the ears. Otoplasty is also performed to correct a birth deformity for protruding ears or “Dumbo” ears, large ears and ears that have an abnormal shape.
Many people who have otoplasty find they have a more symmetrical look which may help to boost self confidence. The key to otoplasty is to create a natural shape that does not interfere with hearing and wearing glasses.
The first step in otoplasty is to discuss the appropriate treatment plan with your plastic surgeon. During the procedure, the surgeon will make an incision behind the ear to weaken the cartilage or tough elastic tissue found in the ear. The cartilage is then folded into position and anchored with sutures.
We are dedicated to helping patients find the best cosmetic procedure options available to help restore and renew their self-image. If you are interested in a cosmetic procedure, our doctors will work with you to help you feel beautiful at any age and any stage of life. Please call 410-332-9700.
