DC Ear Surgery: What You Need to Know

DC Ear SurgeryImprove the shape, position, or proportion of your ears with DC ear surgery

 If you have protruding ears that are leading to a decrease in self-confidence, you might want to consider ear surgery. This procedure corrects protruding ears in order to create a more natural shape while bringing balance to your ears and face.

What is ear surgery?

This procedure is also known as ‘Otoplasty’ or ‘Ear Pinning’. In this procedure, the protrusion of the ears is reduced by reshaping the base of the ear for a more harmonious appearance.

This is done by creating an incision that is placed behind the ear, in the creases, and the cartilage is bent into a new shape. Sutures are then placed on the interior to maintain the new position. Results are often dramatic and we invite you to view before and after photos of patients who have opted to undergo ear surgery in DC here.

For more information about the procedure, read this from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.

There are many benefits to this procedure, including:

  • Reducing the protrusion of the ears
  • Improving self-image

Who does ear pinning treat?

  • Overly large ears: This is caused by a condition called macrotia. The procedure can make your ears look more proportional to the rest of your facial features.
