So what is Otoplasty?
Ear surgery, or ear pinning, is the surgical reshaping of ears, usually to decrease their prominence. There are incision-less techniques and surgical techniques to re-shape the natural folds in the ear and to pin the ears back. In Ontario, for patients under the age of 18, this procedure is covered by OHIP and requires a referral to Dr. Brace from your family doctor. For those over the age of 18, otoplasty can still be performed, however, the cost of the procedure falls to the patient.
