Otoplasty can correct a defect in the ear structure that is present at birth or it can treat misshapen ears caused by injury. Ear correction surgery creates a natural shape, while bringing balance and proportion to the ears and face. Correction of even minor deformities can have profound beneﬁts to appearance and self-esteem. Surgery begins with an incision just behind the ear, in the natural fold where the ear is joined to the head. The ENT surgeon will then remove necessary amounts of cartilage and skin required to achieve the right effect. In some cases, the surgeon will trim the cartilage, shaping it into a more desirable form and then pin the cartilage back with permanent sutures to secure the cartilage. In other instances, the surgeon will not remove any cartilage at all, using stitches to hold the cartilage permanently in place. After sculpting the cartilage to the desired shape, the surgeon will apply sutures to anchor the ear until healing occurs to hold the ear in the desired position. Ears Pinning is a part of otoplasty, or pinnaplasty. It's usually carried out on children and young teenagers, although adults may wish to have it done, too. During the first few days after surgery, your ears may be sore and tender or numb. You may have a slight tingling sensation for a few weeks. You may need to wear a bandage around your head for the first few days to protect your ears from infection. There may be some slight bruising, which can last about two weeks.
