(Ear Reshaping or Ear-Pinning) is common procedure performed in children and adults who are self-conscious of ears that are either malformed, prominent, or protruding. Adults and children over age 4 can have this condition repaired electively, and with minimal discomfort. A simple procedure using advanced suture reshaping techniques can be performed with consistently pleasing outcomes to restore balance to the aesthetic proportions of the face.
The procedure is frequently performed under anesthesia and patients go home comfortably after the procedure. Most people go back to regular activities a couple days after the procedure.
Split-earlobe repair is also offered for patients who have earlobes that are stretched or torn from earring use over several years. We can repair these under local anesthesia in the office for your convenience.
