Prominent ears can be a heavy source of insecurity. Many who suffer from over protruding ears seek surgery at a young age to correct their appearance. Although otoplasty or “ear pinning” surgery can be performed at any age, it is most commonly performed in children between the ages of 5-7 years old.
A successful otoplasty is performed by making a hidden incision behind the ear and bringing the protruding portion of the ear closer to the head. The surgery usually takes about 1-2 hours and the healing time lasts about one week.
