Ear PinningEar Pinning Miami A number of children are born with minor to moderate ear anomalies. Most of the time they are unaware of this, and no surgical procedures need to be considered. Sometimes, however, children with prominent or large ears become very self-aware due to teasing at school by their peers. It is also not unusual to find individuals with ear anomalies in their teens or early adulthood.

Another reason why people may consider ear reshaping is due to trauma. Accidents, cuts, bad piercings, and hypertrophic scars can deform the ears in a dramatic fashion.

Otoplasty or ear sculpting/reshaping is a common operation designed to reestablish the normal anatomic features and improve the appearance of the ears. It may be safely performed on children and adults alike. Procedures for children as young as 6 years old may be safely performed under general anesthesia. Adult patients and older children may instead opt for local anesthesia or IV sedation for their procedure. Surgery usually takes less than an hour, and recovery time is just a few days. Patients undergoing otoplasty should avoid strenuous activities like contact sports for about 2 months after surgery. Satisfaction rates from otoplasty are very high. Children who undergo this procedure will often see significant improvements in their social interactions and even their grades at school!
