Cosmetic ear surgery, also known as Otoplasty, is a cosmetic surgery procedure designed to reduce the size of large ears or pin back ears that protrude too far from the head. Commonly referred to as "ear pinning," this plastic surgery procedure can greatly enhance a person's appearance and self-esteem. The facial plastic surgeons at The MIAMI Institute are specially trained in facial anatomy and balance.

In an Otoplasty, one or more incisions give access to the structures to be sculpted. The main, and often only incision, is behind the ear. Other possible incisions depend on what our surgeons deem necessary to deliver a perfect result. Through the incision behind the ear, the concha bowl can be moved closer to the head, a small tunnel created along the front of a poorly folded antihelix to weaken this cartilage, sutures placed to reshape the anti-helix fold, and to balance the ear lobe with the rest of the ear. Ear surgery offers a true, emotional boost in addition to cosmetic benefits.
