Ear Pinning in LA, SF and Orange County

Ear pinning surgery, also known as Otoplasty, can improve the shape, position or proportion of a person’s ears. Otoplasty can correct a defect in the ear structure that is present at birth and becomes increasingly apparent with development. It can also be used to treat misshapen ears caused by injury or a previous surgery gone wrong.

Our plastic surgeons perform ear surgery to create a natural shape, while bringing balance and proportion to the ears and face. Correction of even minor deformities can have profound benefits to your overall appearance and self-esteem. If protruding or disfigured ears bother you or your child, you may consider plastic surgery.


There are several reasons why a person may choose to undergo ear surgery. While it is most common with children, adults may benefit from surgery as well if they are unhappy with the appearance of their ears.

Some issues that can be treated with ear surgery include:


Otoplasty is a surgical procedure specifically designed to correct any deformities and defects of the ear, and for reconstructing a defective, deformed, or absent external ear, consequent to congenital conditions.

Your plastic surgeon will correct the defect or deformity by creating an appearance that is of a natural proportion and contour. This will usually be achieved by reshaping, moving, and augmenting of the cartilaginous support framework of the pinna. Because the occurrence of congenital ear deformities occasionally overlaps with other medical conditions, corrective otoplasty procedures are recommended to be performed by specially trained facial plastic surgeons like the doctors at Wave Plastic Surgery.
