At the Yale Cosmetic Surgery Center, our internationally renowned plastic surgeons can reduce the curvature of the cartilage to create a more normal ear proportion. Ear pinning surgery can be performed on children over the age of five and in adults. Ear pinning can provide a more balanced look by:
- Reducing the prominence of your ears
- Changing the shape or proportion of your ears
- Reconstructing a damaged ear
What To Expect:Ear pinning can be done under local or general anesthesia as an outpatient procedure. Once your ears have healed, they will appear smaller and more in balance to your natural features.
With 3D imaging technology, our surgeons can simulate the proposed outcome of ear pinning, so that you can see the results before the surgical process. It also allows us to make adjustments to discrepancies in the surgical plan.
