Otoplasty - Ear Pinning Surgery
Oversized or protruding ears can cause suffering for individuals. For those who have dealt with ridicule and improper remarks about their ears, the damage to your self-esteem can be lasting. When you are ready to find a solution for your unsightly ears, come see Dr. Eric Cerrati in South Jordan or Salt Lake City. He can perform an otoplasty, or ear pinning surgery, to restore your ears to a balanced and symmetrical appearance.
Ear pinning surgery is a relatively conventional procedure where incisions are made in the hidden area behind the ears to complete reshaping or removing cartilage. Removing excess skin and tissue is necessary in order for the ears to set closer to the head. This simple procedure has profound effects on a person’s self-esteem and confidence. The procedure generally lasts between 1-2 hours and can be performed in an outpatient setting under local anesthesia, although some patients prefer general anesthesia.
