Ear Pinning (Otoplasty) Melbourne
Dr. Tim Brown Plastic Surgeon Melbourne
Otoplasty is a surgical procedure to change the angle and shape of protruding or uneven ears in children or adults.
Otoplasty is also called a pinnaplasty, or "pinning back the ears", or correction of the ears.
The surgeon reshapes part of the cartilage in the ears, allowing them to lie closer to the side of the head, and reproducing natural folds that may be absent in the normal ear.
In some situations, if the size and shape of ears do not match, Dr Tim Brown may work on only one ear to make it more similar in shape and appearance to the normal ear. There are a number of options available.
Patients who are healthy and have realistic expectations about what the surgery can achieve, are suitable for this surgery.
