Live a new life
with your new ears!!
known as Ear Pinning, Ear Pinback, or Ear Reduction Surgery, is
the cosmetic plastic surgery procedure that permanently corrects
protruding ears. Sensual Body Dream Otoplasty does so by
positioning the ears closer to the head (Ear Pinning), reshaping
them, reducing their size, and making them more symmetrical.
Protruding Ear Deformity is the most prevalent congenital
malformation of the head and neck area.
ranks as the most commonly performed plastic surgery procedure
on children between ages five and fourteen. In fact, Ear Pinning
is one cosmetic surgery where “earlier is better” because of the
devastating blows to a child’s self-esteem, who is teased for
having protruding ears; being called names such as “Dumbo,”
“Mickey Mouse” and “Rabbit Ears.” The optimal time for
performing otoplasty in children is just before they start
school, or at about the age of seven. At this age the ears have
grown to nearly their adult size and the child is old enough to
be able to undergo surgery safely. It also gives children a
chance to correct their facial deformity before starting to
socialize with peers in school.
Otoplasty has also been a blessing for thousands of adults who
have spent their lives feeling self- conscious about their “big
ears”. They have hidden their ears with hairstyles, hats, and
avoided wearing ear jewelry. With Otoplasty they have gained the
freedom to wear their hair short or pulled back, wear earrings,
and no longer feel embarrassed about their look. While Otoplasty
aims to normalize the appearance of the ears it can never
produce perfect and fully symmetrical ears.

will be changed periodically by the doctor. It is advisable to
wear a bandana or bandage over the head and ears at night for an
additional 2 weeks to avoid injuring the ears while sleeping.
