Each year more than 20,000 people opt for ear pinning surgery (otoplasty). It’s a surgical procedure that reshapes and repositions the ears, resulting in a more natural-looking appearance.
Dr. Anthony Farole performs ear pinning surgery from his cosmetic surgery center in Bala Cynwyd, PA. Dr. Farole is a leading board-certified facial cosmetic surgeon who conducts ear pinning surgery as an outpatient procedure.
What Is Ear Pinning Surgery?
Ear pinning is a surgical cosmetic procedure that gets performed on the outer ears. It’s a safe and effective treatment that can be carried out on both adults and children to correct ear deformities such as protruding or disfigured ears.
Dr. Farole performs ear pinning surgery or ‘otoplasty’ under local anesthesia using specialized surgical techniques. The surgery gets explicitly tailored to the needs of each patient and gets completed within an hour.
During the ear pinning surgery, Dr. Farole may need to conduct cartilage removal, stitch remodeling, or both. Patients typically opt for ear pinning surgery because they aren’t happy with how far their ears stick out.
As with any surgical procedure, there are risk factors to consider. However, the good news is complications arising from ear pinning surgery are minimal.
Benefits of Ear Pinning Surgery
Dr. Farole performs ear pinning surgery on patients regularly and has a long-established track record. The most significant benefit of this surgical procedure is how it offers each client instant results. Patients will immediately gain a self-confidence boost thanks to this life-changing cosmetic procedure.
When Dr. Farole conducts ear pinning surgery, he makes all incisions behind the ears that are easily concealable. The surgical procedure only takes him an hour to complete, and patients will experience minimal post-operative discomfort.
After the surgery, there is typically a bit of swelling and bruising for around a week or so. But once that subsides, you can enjoy the fact that the results of your ear pinning surgery are permanent.
Ear pinning surgery is suitable for adults and also for children aged five years or older.

Am I a Candidate for Ear Pinning Surgery?
You may be a candidate for ear pinning surgery if your ears significantly protrude from your head. To be considered an ideal candidate for the cosmetic procedure, you should be a generally healthy adult or a child aged five years or older.
Ear pinning surgery should be avoided if you are pregnant or nursing or taking any prescription medications that might increase bleeding from the ears after the surgery.
As with any surgical procedure, it makes sense to prepare for it beforehand properly. That means following Dr. Farole’s instructions about not eating or drinking before the surgery, and if you’re a smoker, quitting smoking for a few days before and after the procedure.
Note that ear pinning surgery can pose risks for some patients, such as scarring behind your ears, asymmetry during the healing process, and skin sensation changes.
