Teasing can be detrimental: Ear Contouring in Bethesda provides a real solution

Bethesda parents have been seeking the expert advice of Dr. Roger J. Oldham, board certified plastic surgeon, for 25+ years when it comes to ear contouring (otoplasty / ear pinning) surgery. Ear contouring is also referred to as an otoplasty or ear pinning surgery and describes a plastic surgery procedure in which patients undergo an outpatient procedure that treats overly prominent ears by securing them closer to the head. Protruding ears can leave a child vulnerable to immature teasing, but ear contouring (otoplasty / ear pinning) with Dr. Oldham is one of the most common plastic surgery procedures among younger patients because it greatly improves self-esteem.

Ear contouring (ear pinning / otoplasty) is less invasive, relative to other common plastic surgery procedures. Ears can be secured closer to the head through an incision behind the ear that allows access to the treated area. Excess cartilage can be removed, leaving a negligible scar that is easily camouflaged behind the shadow of the outer ear. Patients of Dr. Oldham who have undergone ear contouring surgery experience only about a week of recovery because the surgery can be performed as an outpatient procedure. This also drives down the overall cost of ear pinning surgery. Although it is typical in younger patients, ear contouring (ear pinning) can be performed on patients of any age who seek a more proportional appearance. Ear contouring surgery before and after photos can be seen at Dr. Oldham’s photo gallery. Contact Dr. Oldham’s Bethesda office if you are considering ear contouring (ear pinning) surgery for you or your child.
