    What is Ear Reshaping Treatment?

    Prominent ears is a very common problem, affecting as many as 2 in 100 people. This sort of aesthetic problem can have a real effect on self-esteem, particularly in social situations. Ear correction surgery or otoplasty is a simple operation which can be performed on most adults. The surgery is used to correct prominent ears as well as enlarged or deformed ear lobes.

    otoplasty surgery


    Otoplasty surgery takes place under general anaesthetic and takes between one and three hours. You should be able to go home the same day. Ear surgery will not leave you with any visible scarring as the incision is made behind the ear. The surgeon manipulates and reshapes the cartilage to create a natural and pleasing look.

    Later Progress

    As with any surgery, there will be a little redness and soreness but this should fade after around 48 hours. Immediately after the surgery the ears will be completely covered and this dressing should remain in place for 3 – 4 days. In order to ensure that the ear is protected and heals as intended, you will need to wear a special elasticated headband when you sleep for around a month.

    Risks & Complications

    As with any surgery, there is the small risk of complications with ear correction surgery. At the time of your consultation, the expert we refer you to will take you through the risks in detail so that you can take an informed decision.

    They will not push you for surgery. They will give you all the time and guidance you need to take a decision. They will give you a comprehensive Otoplasty Patient Guide to take home with you. This will answer most of your queries and concerns. If you have any further questions, you can give them a call and they will provide their expert advice. You will love them for their honesty, integrity and professionalism.

    When can I go back to normal day-to-day activities ?

    Are there any alternatives to this surgery ?
    No, the only way to change the size or prominence of your ears is by surgery.
    Can I combine this procedure with other surgery ?
    Yes, you can combine this procedure with other surgeries. You can discuss this in full at your free consultation.
