Otoplasty (Ear Pinning)

Some people are born with ears that just seem to stick out too far.  Also called Lop Ear Deformity, it can be corrected with a procedure called Otoplasty, or bilateral Otoplasty which is reshaping the ear and placing it closer to the scalp. Otoplasty is considered a cosmetic procedure and not covered by any insurance policies anymore, even for children. Dr. Truswell now only does this procedure for adults in his accredited operating suite.
