Ear surgery involves improving the size, shape and position of the ears. It's frequently done on children and teens to prevent bullying and low self-esteem.

Boost your confidence and self-esteem
You decide what your ears look like

Fill in wrinkles, scars and lines
Contour the jaw and chin
To begin your ear pinning surgery, Dr. Reinblatt will create a small incision behind each ear to expose the underlying cartilage. Through that opening, she will reshape the cartilage and remove excess skin. She will then reposition the ear so it's closer to the head and appears less prominent.
Some patients have ears that are too large in comparison to the rest of their features. In these cases, Dr. Reinblatt will perform an ear reduction.
During this procedure, she will sculpt smaller ears and reduce the size of the earlobe by removing unwanted cartilage and skin. When done correctly, this surgery can improve balance and create more pleasing proportions. It is often performed alongside the ear pinning procedure.
Ear reconstruction is for patients who have defects from birth or trauma. Some of the issues that can be addressed with this surgery include:
Your ears will be swollen and sore, and your head will be wrapped with cotton bandages. You will need to get plenty of rest, stay hydrated and wear a special compression garment for several days.
By the third day, your swelling should subside and you will feel like you're healing. You will still need to wear your compression garment
About one week after surgery, you'll notice that you feel more comfortable. At this point, most children can return to school and adults can return to work. You will also remove all bandages this week and replace them with a soft headband to be worn only at night.
Avoid rigorous activity until the healing process is complete
Keep your head cool and avoid extreme heat
Don't shampoo your hair for one week
Keep your head elevated at all times
Don't sleep on your side
You don't have to live with large, protruding or misshapen ears that make you feel self-conscious. Contact Dr. Reinblatt's office today to schedule a consultation and begin planning for your surgery.Schedule
