Ear & Earlobe Reduction

Many patients, both men and women, are concerned about oversized or protruding ears. With today’s hairstyles and athletic lifestyles, protruding ears can be a distraction. Otoplasty is a procedure designed to provide natural-appearing, smaller and less-protruding ears.

Otoplasty – Ear Pinning is often done in children as young as age five when there are concerns about teasing and taunting.

Otoplasty – Earlobe Reduction Results

Dr. Hopping performs otoplasty as a simple, 30 minute operation in the office under local anesthesia. Patients can return to work the next day. Many times we re-pierce the earlobe since the earring hole is often removed as the earlobe is reduced.

Your Consultation

Dr. Hopping evaluates your ears as they relate to the rest of your face and determines if you are a good candidate for otoplasty. He shows you before and after examples of other patients who have had otoplasty and discusses anticipated results, risks and recovery.

The Procedure

Otoplasy can be done under local anesthesia as an outpatient procedure at our AAAHC-Certified center. The procedure takes approximately 90 minutes and recovery is usually one week.

Expected Results

There is minimal pain and bruising following otoplasty. Most patients can usually return to work within 48 hours. The results of otoplasty are natural, less prominent ears that give patients a permanent, more sophisticated look.
