What is Otoplasty?
Otoplasty, also commonly known as “ear pinning,” is a procedure performed on children and adults who would like to have their ears lay flatter or who would like the shape of the ears changed.
Dr. Timothy Janiga performs otoplasty using local anesthesia in our Reno office. In most cases, an incision is made behind the ear, allowing for it to be folded, reshaped or have cartilage removed to reposition the ear. The incisions are then sutured shut.
This procedure takes about an hour and requires very little down time.

Recovery & Results
Mild swelling, bruising and discomfort may last up to a week. Full results should be noticeable almost immediately.
As a result, you will notice that your ears have less projection, appearing smaller in shape and size. During your consultation with Dr. Timothy Janiga, you will discuss a realistic expectation of your personal outcome.
