Broadway Plastic Surgery Breast Augmentation FAQs

These are questions about our process and about the procedure in general.

What is ear pinning (otoplasty)?

Otoplasty is also known as ear pinning or cosmetic ear surgery. It is a procedure that helps to address certain insecurities one might have about their ears. The most common purpose of this surgery is for ears that stick out too much from one’s head, but it can also address other imperfections such as shape.

Is Otoplasty Covered by Insurance?

In most cases, Otoplasty is purely cosmetic and, therefore, not covered by insurance. However, as with most surgeries, if there is a medical reason for getting it done, you could potentially have a percentage of the procedure covered. Check with your insurance company for accurate details.

How do I prepare for Otoplasty surgery?

The Broadway Plastic Surgery staff will give you instructions to prepare for surgery, including guidelines on eating and drinking, smoking, and taking or avoiding certain vitamins and medications. While making preparations, be sure to arrange for someone to drive you home after your surgery and to help you out for a few days, if needed.

How long does it take to see results?

The difference will be immediately noticeable. However, the final results may not be visible for several weeks once the swelling goes down. Talk to your plastic surgeon about what to expect for your specific case.

What does recovery look like?

Recovery from Otoplasty is pretty mild. Most patients need about a week. You can plan to return to work and most of your regular daily activities within 5-7 days, but you should hold off on exercise for one to two months.

The potential effects of the surgery during the recovery period are: throbbing, aching, swelling, numbness, and redness, all of which will go away after a week and can be managed during that time with medication if needed.
