Will I Be Able To Wiggle My Ears After Getting Head Widening Implants?

Q: Dr. Eppley, I’m planning to get a head widening implant. Does a implant on the side of the head above the ears cause any complications to the muscles that moves the ears up and down? Especially the top auricularis muscles?

A:Since a postauricular incision is used for placing most head widening implants I make the assumption that the auricular muscles will be adversely affected. Thus one will probably not be able to wiggle one’s ears after the surgery.
