Ears come in all shapes and sizes. When the ears are too big, too prominent or have an unusual shape, Otoplasty can create a more aesthetic appearance. One common variation of Otoplasty is Ear Pinning. The procedure brings the ears closer to the head, which allows patients to feel both comfortable and confident, no matter how they wear their hair.

The Correction of Cupped (Lop) Ears

Sometimes the skin on the top of the ear is too tight causing cupping or lope ears. Cosmetic ear surgery reduces the cupping and improves the ears’ appearance.

Lop Ears are ears which are cupped. The top curls down and often out giving the deformity its unique shape. For many patients, cosmetic ear surgery can improve the appearance of cupped ears. Stahls ears (Spock Ears) can also be corrected with these techniques.
