No – this is not another case of otoplasty, or ear pinning. Look more closely. This amazing result came about after Dr. Hilinski performed macrotia, or scapha ear reduction, surgery on this young female patient. She was bothered by the fact that her ears were too large – as seen from top to bottom. So Dr. Hilinski reduced the upper portion of her ear by taking away skin and cartilage – then reducing the earlobe just a bit. The end result is an amazing transformation – providing her with ears that are now normal in size and shape.
