Otoplasty in Dallas

Otoplasty, or “Ear Pinning”


Otoplasty, also known as ear pinning, repositions protruding ears and re-contours oddly shaped ears, such as a lop ear or cup ear.

Ear pinning

Dallas surgeon Dr. Standefer performs this simple, minimally invasive procedure on children, men, and women who are self-conscious about the way their ears look. The results of your ear pinning in Dallas can produce a more attractive, balanced look that will help you discover a newfound confidence.

Having started my career as a Ear, Nose and Throat Doctor, I know the aesthetic shape of the ear and how to achieve the best result.

Real Self Review

I had a really great experience. I had an ear pinning surgery and I have been very happy with the results. Dr. Standefer and his staff have been great through the entire process and I would recommend him to anyone thinking of having this same procedure.

Real Self Review

…I never once felt pressured into getting surgery, and they let me spend a few months thinking about the decision, completely uninfluenced. The surgery staff made my experience comfortable and even fun. I give Dr Standefer and my experience with Fresh Image an 11/10 rating!
