What exactly is ear pinning?
Ear pinning is the common term for an otoplasty. Otoplasty is a procedure where ears that protrude from the side of the head farther than desired are reshaped into a more aesthetic position. This is performed with light sedation and local anesthesia through a small incision on the back of the ear. The ears are swollen for about a week to the extent that it is noticeable and then sore for a few more weeks. It is a very reliable and satisfactory procedure.
