Otoplasty / Ear Pinning

Do you feel self-conscious about your ears? At FacesFirst, our goal is to transform your idea of what you look like and give you self-confidence no matter the situation.

An otoplasty, a procedure used to “pin back” or reposition protruding ears, is one of our most rewarding surgeries – for both the patient and the doctor. The results can dramatically enhance the look of your face as well as your self-esteem.

If you want to feel confident in your appearance, call our Denver plastic surgery office today at 303.744.2300. Our experienced surgeons will talk through your options and address any of your concerns. Plus, an otoplasty can be performed at either of our Denver or Lone Tree locations, which makes the procedure that much more convenient for patients.

Otoplasty is the name given to the procedure used to “pin back” or reposition protruding ears.
Protruding ears can cause deeper emotional scarring than is generally realized by even the parents or friends of individuals who have this issue. Because the visual and psychological improvement following the operation is usually dramatic, it is one of the most rewarding procedures for both the patient and our surgeons.
In children, the surgery is preferably done before school age, before the age of 6. This helps to avoid classroom teasing. However, an otoplasty can be done at any time, even in adulthood. In younger children, a general anesthetic is given (“twilight” anesthesia in adults), and there is virtually little pain after surgery. In adults, an otoplasty may be performed on an outpatient basis at our Denver or Lone Tree office or at the hospital.
With an otoplasty procedure, the thin scars resulting from the incisions are located behind each ear and are automatically hidden by them. It is rare that anyone will notice these scars. To protect patients directly after surgery, a bandage is worn around the head to cover the ears. Once this is removed, the patient should wear a cap or headband pulled down over the ears while sleeping to protect them for another two weeks. Most patients may return to work or school in 3-5 days following surgery.
