Ear Correction Surgery

Ear correction surgery is cosmetic surgery to alter the size or shape of the ears, or pin them back if they stick out.

Generally, ear correction surgery is safe and most people are happy with the results.

Pinning back the ears is known as an otoplasty or Pinnaplasty. It’s usually done on children and young teenagers, although adults can also have it done.

Ear pinning surgery is not suitable for children younger than 5 because their ears are still growing and developing. At a very young age the ear cartilage is too soft to hold the stitches.
