Why consider ear correction?

Prominent or “sticking-out” ears are a common problem affecting many people. Some people find that it affects their self-confidence and makes them feel uncomfortable in social situations. Ear correction, or otoplasty, is a surgical procedure that can remedy this. The surgery can be performed on teenagers or adults and can also correct deformed or enlarged ear lobes.

What does otoplasty involve?

Ear correction is a surgical procedure performed under general anaesthetic, undertaken by a specialist cosmetic Surgeon. Incisions are made behind the ear, so any scarring will be minimal and discreet. The Surgeon will then reshape the cartilage to give it an appealing look. It normally takes approximately 2 hours and, in most cases, you will go home the same day.

What can I expect after the surgery?

You should expect to feel bruised and sore for a few days after your surgery, but this is normally easily managed with simple analgesia. Your ears will be covered by a dressing for the first few days; we will remove this at your first aftercare appointment. To aid healing, and to make sure the ears are protected, we will issue you with a protective headband to wear while you are sleeping for 4-6 weeks following surgery.
