Otoplasty (ear pinning)- performed by Dr. Christopher Hove. Overprojected ears (a.k.a. prominauris) are most often a congenital condition. Children often find this a source of concern around the age of 6-10, as they become self-aware of their physical features, and can be the source of taunts from schoolmates. Ultimately, this can have a negative impact on self-confidence and social development. Otoplasty can correct this. Dr. Hove prefers to hide the incisions behind the ear for his otoplasties, and preserve the natural ear cartilage, just reshaping it rather than removing it. An otoplasty can be performed under local anesthesia for a rapid recovery. At the Hove Center for Facial Plastic Surgery, located in Paoli (The Main Line of Philadelphia), Dr. Hove specializes in facial plastic, cosmetic and reconstructive surgery. He emphasizes a very natural appearing result with his procedures.
