    EAR RESHAPING / OTOPLASTY

    Otoplasty, ear reshaping, or ear pinning is a solution for patients of all ages struggling with protruding, or oversized, ears. Larger, or “outstanding,” ears may cause children and adults to become very self-conscious about their facial appearance. Larger ears may attract unwanted attention or distract from the natural beauty of one’s face. Chicago Facial Plastic Surgeon Sanjay Keni pins back or reshapes the ears for an attractive look, always keeping a patient’s long-term hearing mind.

    Who is a Candidate for Ear Reshaping or Otoplasty?

    Healthy men, women, and children who are seeking improvement to the appearance of their ears are excellent candidates for ear reshaping, or otoplasty. Surgery may be performed on any patient over the age of 5. Ideal patients are in good overall health and have realistic expectations of what this surgery can accomplish. An experienced otoplastic surgeon like Dr. Sanjay Keni always places patient safety first and carefully screens patients to determine their candidacy. Dr. Keni will recommend the best course of treatment to reduce the risk of complications while delivering the best aesthetic results.

    What is the Recovery like from Ear Pinning or Otoplasty?

    Ear pinning, or otoplasty, may be performed with moderate sedation or general anesthesia, depending on the patient’s preference and age. When performed on very young children ear reconstruction may be carried out in a hospital setting. For those patients who need a small correction, the treatment may be performed on location at Keni Plastic Surgery under local anesthesia.

    Dr. Keni is experienced in a wide array of ear reshaping techniques. During ear pinning surgery Dr. Keni makes a small incision on the back of the ear to expose the cartilage. He then repositions the cartilage closer to the head in a more appealing position. Any excess cartilage is removed. Scarring is minimal and the sutures are securely hidden underneath the skin.

    • “I had a lifestyle lift done [at Keni Plastic Surgery] last Thursday and I can see the results. I had no idea to expect. I had radiation to my neck eight years ago and it really damaged that area. I could not stand to look at my neck. Dr. Keni told me he thought he could make improvements and I trusted him. Because radiation is so hard on the skin it makes it really difficult to fix. Other plastic surgeons said the procedure would not have worked out well. But, Dr. Keni had a great idea and GOOD LORD my neck is so pretty now. I could see it after the surgery and I am glad I had it done. For any women or men that have had to go through some sort of radiation in the neck area, all I can say is “WOW!” It is fixable.”
