What type of ear shape benefits the most from an ear pinning surgery?
Ear pinning surgery, or otoplasty, can be of benefit to almost any protruding or misshapen ear. Traditionally, otoplasty is used in those individuals with prominent ears that stick out from the head and lack the normal definition of an ear. I have used otoplasty to sculpt malformed ears and the otoplasty procedure is an artistic procedure that can be tailored to the needs of the individual.
