Ear pinning surgery or (otoplasty) is a procedure that can benefit adults who are self-conscious about the size or projection of their ears. Dr. Kramer uses this surgery to have the ears rest closer to the sides of the head.
Two primary reasons to have ear surgery:
- You are uncomfortable with the look of large or protruding ears
- To improve facial balance and improve self-confidence
How Ear Surgery is Performed
Ear surgery is performed by making an incision behind the ear and reshaping or removing some of the cartilage to reposition the ears. Permanent sutures will be placed beneath the skin to hold your ears in their new position.
Each ear surgery that Dr. Kramer performs in his state of the art Boise surgery center is personalized to meet the individual needs of his patients. He will work closely with you to develop the best ear surgery plan for your specific case.
Love the Look of Your Ears
Ear surgery can be a life-changing procedure and often has a positive impact on the way a person views him or herself, resulting in higher levels of self-confidence. This procedure will help reposition the ears so they sit more closely to the sides of your head for a natural and beautifully balanced appearance.
Healing After Ear Surgery
The specific recovery time for your own ear surgery will vary. You should feel well enough to return to work and normal activity within a week after your procedure with Dr. Kramer. You may experience some swelling, but in a few short months, your ears should be fully healed so you can enjoy the results of your surgery.
