Ear Pinning (Otoplasty)

Ear pinning - also known as otoplasty - from Bella Vista in Thousand Oaks, CA

Ear surgery typically serves two functions: setting prominent ears back closer to the head, and reducing the size of large ears. Surgery may also be helpful for “lop ear,” “cupped ear” and “shell ear,” large or stretched earlobes, and lobes with large creases and wrinkles. Surgeons are also able to construct new ears for patients who are missing them from injury or other causes.

Although surgery for adults is available, the operation is most often performed on children aged four to 14, as ears are almost fully grown by age four, and early surgery can prevent a child from being teased in school. General anesthesia is recommended for very young patients, while local anesthesia and a sedative are used for older children and adults.

Dr. Waldman, Thank you so much for the Septoplasty AKA my new Fab nose! It looks great and gets better each day. As you know we had a hard time choosing surgeons and you were by far the best choice with the best referrals. I can’t talk more highly about your entire team and the care they put into every patient. I truly appreciate everything you have done for me, you changed my life.
