Ears that look large, are misshapen or uneven, or stick out unnaturally can negatively impact your self-esteem. Otoplasty (or ear pinning surgery) is an aesthetic procedure that recontours the size, shape, and position of the ears to create a more symmetrical appearance. Dr. Husam Elias in Sherman Oaks, CA has helped many adults and children to move past their unpleasant feelings about their ears with this procedure. No matter the case, otoplasty at Southern California Center for Surgical Arts allows a patient to proudly show their face from any angle with self-assurance. If you or your child are concerned about the size or shape of the ears, contact us to schedule a consultation with Dr. Elias.

Ear pinning surgery is most common among children; however, the procedure can be performed on patients of all ages. If your child suffers from low self-esteem due to the look and shape of their ears, otoplasty can be considered to help them achieve a more natural-looking appearance. Patients who have damaged earlobes are also good candidates for this surgery.

Otoplasty is performed using general anesthesia or IV sedation. Most often, the incision is made behind the ear or inside the inner ear folds. During surgery, cartilage will be rearranged to create a more natural appearance. It is common for both ears to be addressed during the same surgery to make sure the end result is symmetrical. After the procedure, the incisions are closed with sutures and bandaged up for healing. When the surgery is over and it is safe to leave our outpatient surgery center, you or your child will recover at home. Dr. Elias will send you home with instructions for recovery. Do not touch or scratch the ears after surgery. Patients should not lay on their ears and should sleep upright for several days. Dr. Elias will ask to see the patient within the first week — during this time, Dr. Elias will take off the bandages and assess the ears. Results are noticeable almost immediately and will continue to improve as the ears heal.

My experience with this office was absolutely stellar. Firstly, the staff welcomes you warmly when you arrive. Diana (doctor’s assistant) met me in the exam room.  Diana has a way of instantly making you feel comfortable and any nervousness you may be feeling is dissipated.... Because you can’t stop laughing. Then enters Dr. Elias.... He is extremely approachable, honest, and knowledgeable. It doesn’t hurt that he has multiple degrees. I am ecstatic that I found this business:

Dr. Elias pulled my wisdom teeth out like they called his mamma fat or something! Surgery was quick and basically painless. Didn’t need any of the pain meds and was back at work two days later looking like a snack. Diane was the nurse that took care of me for most of the process and she was so wonderful, kind, funny and sweet. If my wisdom teeth every grow back, I will definitely be coming back to Dr. Elias immediately. Thank you!
