Ear Pinning - Otoplasty


Please tweet and retweet


Prominent ears can be socially traumatic for children in their early school years.
It is sad that we have non-surgical ways to treat this in infants using the EarWell so they never have to go through this type of bullying yet many parents do not have their babies treated.

The surgical treatment in children or adults involves making an incision behind the ear and placing shaping sutures in the cartilage to create the missing fold that makes the ear stick out. Over the course of a month or two the cartilage reshapes itself to the shape held by the sutures so they are no longer necessary, though we do not usually go back to take them out. Depending on surgeon preference sutures are placed between the cartilage and the side of the head, skin may be removed from behind the ear and/or some ear cartilage is removed to obtain the best longest lasting ear shape.
