Ear Pinning in Fredericksburg, VA

What is Ear Pinning?

Ears that appear to protrude outward, are asymmetrical or misshapen, or look oversized can negatively impact your self-esteem, especially during childhood. Ear reshaping surgery (also known as otoplasty) is a cosmetic treatment that helps redefine the size, position, and shape of the ears to produce a pleasing look. Dr. Howard Heppe, Dr. Harold Bautista, and Dr. Pejman Aflaki are plastic surgeons in Fredericksburg, VA who have helped many adults and children overcome the embarrassment of showing their ears by undergoing this surgery. Regardless of the cosmetic issue, ear surgery at Plastic Surgery Services of Fredericksburg allows patients to show their faces at any angle with newfound confidence. If you or your child are concerned about the appearance of the ears, make an appointment to get more information on otoplasty.

How Does Ear Pinning Work?

Ear reshaping surgery is completed using a form of anesthesia. In most cases, the incision is made near the back of the ear or within the inner ear. Cartilage may be removed or added during this procedure to create a smaller or larger appearance. It is common for both ears to be addressed during treatment to make sure they appear symmetrical. After this, the incisions are closed with sutures and bandaged so they stay protected.

Saw Dr. Bautista for breast augmentation and extremely pleased with my experience. He was patient with my questions and educated me on realistic results. I’m overwhelmingly happy with the outcome and without hesitation recommend him!

I had such a great experience here. Everyone in the office is so helpful and professional. I’ve had 5 large babies and had quite the muffin top situation going on. I can’t believe the difference the tummy tuck made. I’ve heard of other people traveling far away to get procedures done, but I’m super grateful we have such a high caliber plastic surgery office here in Fredericksburg!

I had a breast augmentation done in May and I could not be happier. Dr Heppe and his staff were very professional, helpful and supportive in making sure that what I wanted is what I got. I’ve waited my entire adult life for this surgery and would do it again with this team in a second. A+ all the way around!

The whole staff was amazing. I had a breast lift with augmentation and I love the results. I am no longer embarrassed about my chest. I also had filler under my eyes and everyone at work has commented on how rested I look. My only regret is I wish I would have done this procedure years ago.
