Ear Pinning Surgery at Dr. Papanastasiou’s Clinic in Montreal

Over-prominence of the ears is a developmental problem, which is first noticed by the parents of a child at a very young age. It can easily become a source of embarrassment and result in lack of self-confidence.

The surgery consists of correcting the over-prominence of cartilage on the back of the ear and this can usually be carried out any time after the age of 5 years.

Our Practice

The best candidates are healthy individuals with no medical history that could lead to postoperative complications. Dr. Papanastasiou will be in a good position to tell you if you are a good candidate for this surgery.

The procedure most often is carried out under local anesthesia in our surgical clinic and involves a small incision on the back of your ear and several sutures being placed in the cartilage, folding the cartilage to pin the ear back and give it a more natural appearance.

A dressing is applied and is usually removed one week after the operation. Post-operative discomfort should be minimal as is the bruising and swelling. You can return to normal activities within one week but should be careful with contact sports for at least 4 to 6 weeks.

Nose Surgery

“Two years ago I decided to have breast augmentation and a full rhinoplasty. I went to see Dr. Papanastasiou and felt immediately comfortable with him and his staff and confident that he was the best doctor to do the work. It turns out that I needed a revision (to correct minor issues) for both surgeries (breasts and nose) and I was met with understanding and openness. Dr. Papanastasiou and his staff were very accommodating and compassionate! There were no hassles or arguments regarding the need for the revisions and this was very reassuring! I’m extremely pleased with the results of both surgeries and I’m grateful to have been in Dr. Papanastasiou’s care ☺️”
