Otoplasty (Ear Surgery)

Otoplasty (Ear Surgery)

Otoplasty, or ear pinning, refines the ear's shape to harmonize with the face. Many men feel self-conscious about prominent or misshapen ears, and this procedure corrects such issues. At Aestique Plastic Surgery in Warrendale, PA, we emphasize subtle enhancements that boost confidence. While traditionally sought by children, more adult men are now recognizing the benefits of otoplasty.

Otoplasty at Aestique Plastic Surgery is a precise procedure that reshapes prominent or large ears. Through a discreet incision on the ear's back, the cartilage is exposed and skillfully adjusted using sutures. The surgery typically lasts just over an hour, with patients wearing a head dressing for a few days post-operation. Most return to their usual activities within a week. Under Dr. Lazzaro's expertise, we also address bifid or torn earlobes. Men seeking enhanced confidence are encouraged to book an appointment with us.
