Ear Reduction Surgery (Otoplasty)

‘Ear Pinning’ is a procedure, known as otoplasty, that reduces prominent ears. There are several reasons why some ears are prominent and it is important to design a surgery that addresses the specific needs of the patient. Dr. Rodgers will conduct a full analysis and discuss his findings with you so that a treatment option can be formulated. The procedure itself is generally performed in Dr. Rodgers’ procedure room under local anesthesia. Younger patients, or those that have elevated anxiety do better under general anesthesia. Dr Rodgers performs this surgery on children as young as 5. It generally takes about an hour and a half and the results are permanent.
