Prominent ears can be a source of embarrassment for people of all ages. Fortunately, there is a procedure called otoplasty, also known as “ear pinning,” that can be performed on children and adults to correct protruding ears. Whether you’re five or 55, otoplasty in Omaha can help you achieve greater facial harmony and feel more self-assured in your appearance.
At Aesthetic Surgical Images, our office is warm and home-like, which is particularly comforting to children. And, our friendly, professional staff makes every effort to maximize your comfort.

Otoplasty: Surgery for Ears That Stick Out
In Omaha, otoplasty pins back and reshapes ears that protrude too far from the head. This procedure comes as a great relief to children who are often forced to endure painful teasing and to adults who feel self-conscious about their ears and often hide them under long hair.
In your consultation, one of our compassionate, highly-qualified plastic surgeons will sit down with you to listen to your goals, address any concerns and show you realistic results using our state-of-the-art computer imaging system.
Your Otoplasty Procedure
During otoplasty, your surgeon places an incision behind the ear to reshape the cartilage and skin. The ear is then folded back and set closer to the skull to achieve a more balanced appearance. Your physician completes the procedure by using tiny stitches to hold the ear in place while it heals. Otoplasty is typically performed under general anesthesia, but we can accommodate some adults who prefer a local anesthetic.
Enjoying Your Results
Following surgery, you may experience some swelling and bruising. Any discomfort is usually managed with over-the-counter pain medicine. If stronger medication is needed, your surgeon will write a prescription. As with any procedure, following post-surgical instructions will maximize comfort and results.
When performed by a skilled plastic surgeon, otoplasty can have a tremendous impact on your quality of life. Not only will you enjoy the physical benefits of well-proportioned ears, but you will also enjoy the emotional benefits associated with increased confidence.

“I waited until I was 48 to have the procedure. I wish I would have done it sooner. I have always been self-conscious because of my ears and am so happy now to be able to wear hair styles I have never been able to wear. The procedure went pretty well. I had just local anesthesia. The only problem I had was nausea caused by the pain meds and the head wrap was a little uncomfortable the first night. I sleep on my side so I had some problems with sleeping for a couple of weeks just trying to not lay on my ears.”5 Stars
