Some people deal with diminished self-confidence due to ears that look large, misshapen, uneven, or stick out unnaturally. Otoplasty (or ear pinning surgery) is an aesthetic procedure that recontours the size, shape, and position of the ears to create a more symmetrical appearance. No matter the case, otoplasty at Southern California Center for Surgical Arts allows a patient to proudly show their face from any angle with self-confidence. Dr. Husam Elias is highly experienced in performing otoplasty to help Los Angeles, CA adults and children move past unpleasant feelings about the appearance of their ears. Schedule a consultation to discuss your concerns with Dr. Elias and see how we can help.

Otoplasty, or ear pinning, is an ideal surgery for our Los Angeles, CA patients who are unhappy with the size and/or shape of their ears. Southern California Center for Surgical Arts can assist with helping you or your child reach a higher level of confidence with benefits like:

  • Resolve a variety of ear issues
  • Minimize prominence of larger ears
  • Reposition ears that lay in an odd manner
  • Correct congenital ear issues
  • Achieve an increasingly natural appearance

Ear pinning surgery is most common among children; however, the procedure can be performed on patients of all ages. If your child suffers from low self-esteem due to the look and shape of their ears, otoplasty can be considered to help them achieve a more natural-looking appearance. Patients who have damaged earlobes are also good candidates for this surgery.

While you are asleep under general anesthesia, the incision is made behind the ear or inside the inner folds of the ear. During surgery, cartilage will be rearranged to create a more natural appearance. It is common for both ears to be addressed during the same surgery to make sure the end result is symmetrical. Following the surgery, the incisions are closed with sutures and bandaged up for healing before you are sent home to recover. Our team will provide home care guidelines, including not touching the ears after surgery. Additionally, do not lay on your ears, and be sure to sleep in an upright position for a few days. During a follow-up appointment at Southern California Center for Surgical Arts, Dr. Elias will assess your ears and remove the bandages. You should notice almost immediate results, with continued improvements once the healing is complete.

I took my daughter in for a consult regarding getting her wisdom teeth removed. Everyone was very nice and explained everything in detail. Dr. Pouya is very nice and explained the whole process to us from beginning to end. They were nice enough to schedule her surgery the following week since I wanted her to recover before she went back to school. I am very pleased with the whole office and how well the surgery went. I will definitely recommend Dr. Pouya to anyone needed their wisdom teeth removed.

I had Silicone breast implants by Dr Elias, I went from flat to fab in under an hour, I love my new addition:)I came to Dr Elias as referral from a friend of mine who had hers done by him a few years ago and they still looked fantastic, so I decided to follow him on IG to see his work, it didn’t take long before I booked a consultation with him. He was thorough, knowledgeable and reasonably priced compared to other places I consulted with in the past. I’m extremely happy with my results, post op care was great, he saw me so many times to check the healing of my surgery. I can’t say enough about my results. I love ’em..

My experience with this office was absolutely stellar. Firstly, the staff welcomes you warmly when you arrive. Diana (doctor’s assistant) met me in the exam room.  Diana has a way of instantly making you feel comfortable and any nervousness you may be feeling is dissipated.... Because you can’t stop laughing. Then enters Dr. Elias.... He is extremely approachable, honest, and knowledgeable. It doesn’t hurt that he has multiple degrees. I am ecstatic that I found this business:
