Prominent, large, or protruding ears can have a negative impact on a person’s confidence. They can make you feel self-conscious and prevent you from socializing with others or even going after opportunities such as job interviews or promotions at work.

Projected or prominent ears are often the result of the lack of a deep outer fold or having too much cartilage in the ear cup. Otoplasty is a surgical procedure that is done to correct protruding, large, or misshapen ears.

A type of otoplasty known as ear pinning, involves the removal or reshaping of the cartilage in the cup of the ear, and is an outpatient procedure that can be completed in two to four hours. It can be performed on both adults and children, and does not interfere with hearing.

Otoplasty is an effective solution for repositioning the ears so that they can lie flatter, which changes the perceived shape of the person’s face and improves their overall appearance. Using incisions that are hidden behind the ear, otoplasty is also used to reduce and improve the appearance of excessively large ears and congenital ear abnormalities with minimal visible scarring. Compare the otoplasty before and after photos to see how much of a difference this procedure can make.
