Otoplasty (Cosmetic Ear Reshaping): Before & After Photos
Surgeries performed by facial plastic surgeon Dr. Sam Lam in Plano, TX.
This 21-year-old young woman is shown before and after a reductive cosmetic otoplasty or cosmetic ear pinning to reduce the flare of her left ear only. She shows pre-existing ear asymmetry which is improved postoperatively by performing a unilateral, or one-sided otoplasty. It is impossible to get the two sides the same but asymmetry can be improved in Dr. Lam’s hands.
This 31-year-old patient of Dr. Lam is shown before and six months following an otoplasty/ear surgery. He was bothered by the prominence of his ears even though the degree of protrusion would be considered minimal by others. Dr. Lam is skilled at performing subtle otoplasty being able to bring the ears back without overpinning them.
This 42-year-old man from California is shown before and one day after a unilateral one-sided otoplasty of his left ear. He had mainly a lop ear and a little bit of a cup ear as well. He states he has newfound confidence now.
This gentleman had a prior otoplasty performed elsewhere after which he could not wear eyeglasses because the ears were too tight, especially the right side. He also needed to hold his ear out from his head when he was getting a haircut. In addition, he had a nonhealing ulcer on the surface of the right ear. Because his ears were overpinned, his head looked larger, and also his earlobes protruded unnaturally outward. He also had an asymmetric result. He underwent a revision otoplasty using skin grafts from the back of the left ear to be used behind the right ear and some in the front of the right ear where there was a non-healing ulcer. He also had a skin graft from the bottom of the right ear placed behind the top of his left ear. Also a significant amount of scar tissue was released. He now has a more symmetric result. He has what is known as “helical show” where you can see the helical rim from the frontal view. He can wear glasses now and he can also get a haircut without pulling his ear outward. His non-healing ulcer is now healed too. His earlobes, ears, and face are much more balanced as well.
This young woman is shown before and 1.5 years after a reductive cosmetic otoplasty or cosmetic ear pinning to reduce the flare of her ears. She had a lop ear deformity correction. She shows pre-existing ear asymmetry which is improved but not entirely eliminated postoperatively.

Sometimes otoplasty should be very subtle. This gentleman did not want to have a very dramatic difference because his ears were not very bad to begin with. The key with good otoplasty is to keep overall good form and also what is known as helical show. That means that from the frontal view you can still see the curvature of his helical outer rim without it being hidden. That would be a telltale sign of overdone ear pinning.
