Otoplasty, ear pinning and ear reshaping (all types of ear surgeries), involves reshaping the ears to look less prominent and/or more aesthetically pleasing.

"Words can not express how truly happy I am with my whole experience! I have wanted this surgery for years, but never thought I would actually voluntarily have someone cut me open. Trust in someone to do that is HUGE! Dr. Williams put me at ease immediately. After meeting and speaking with Dr. Williams I knew I was in good hands! He explained the whole process and everything I should expect (good and bad). If I had known about him before I wouldn’t have waited so long! His whole staff is fantastic, especially Adriana! Thank you for EVERYTHING! It’s been a month, I know I have a long way to go till I’m all healed, but I am already so very happy with the results! If you are looking for a great surgeon look no further!"- K.L. / Google / Sep 22, 2018

"I have to start this off by saying Dr. Williams gained my 100% trust by being honestly and upfront with me during the whole process. Before I met him I had a couple other consultations that left me feeling discouraged. Dr. Williams was very informative during the consultation he answered almost all my questions and concerns before I even had to ask. He explained in detail what to expect before, during, and after the procedure. My results are exactly what I was hoping for and my recovery was better than I was expecting. I believe Dr. Williams is the best!"- S.M. / Google / Jan 10, 2023

Ear surgery can be performed on individuals of any age. Good candidates are men or women who demonstrate:
- Self-confidence issues because of the size or shape of their ears
- Protruding ears that stick out
- Large or oversized ears
- Under developed ear cartilage
- Torn earlobes due to heavy jewelry or ear trauma
What to Expect
Otoplasty begins with an incision behind the ear so that the cartilage can be exposed. This cartilage is then reshaped until the ear takes on a better appearance. Excess skin can also be removed.
If an earlobe needs to be repaired, the procedure can usually be performed in the office under local anesthesia with minimal downtime or discomfort.
Recovery From Ear Surgery
Swelling and bruising can be minimal after otoplasty. The swelling and bruising will start to resolve during the first couple of weeks after surgery, although this will vary between patients. A head dressing is applied immediately after surgery and removed at the first office visit. An elastic headband must be worn for several more weeks for protection. Patients must avoid strenuous activity for a minimum of 1 – 2 months following surgery. Children will need to be monitored closely so that they do not pick or scratch at their ears during the healing phase.
