This is the name given to the cosmetic procedure which corrects sticking out ears. It is also known as pinnaplasty or ear reshaping surgery.

What is otoplasty / ear reshaping surgery?

This is a cosmetic surgical procedure which corrects protruding ears by ‘pinning’ them or reshaping them to form a more natural looking appearance. The ears are then ‘pinned’ or pulled back towards the sides of the head to achieve a pleasing look.

Many people with sticking our ears feel self-conscious about their appearance and ask for the angle of their ears to be changed so that they look normal or to be reduced in size.
