Ear pinning (Otoplasty) and ear lobe repair,Ear reshaping
Works well: To pin back protruding ears and mend torn or stretched ear lobes.
At Harley Street Skin, we have specialised cosmetic surgeons who are able to carry out surgery to correct protruding, overly-large ears and also to conduct ear lobe surgery.
Large or protruding ears can be an embarrassing problem for both children and adults, which often has a negative impact on self-esteem and confidence. Ear reshaping surgery (Otoplasty) can be performed to set back protruding ears or to reduce the size of large ears.
The procedure involves removing skin and reshaping cartilage from behind the ears. The ears are then stitched into the new position with the incision marks concealed in the crease behind the ear, leaving no signs of surgery.
Time taken: Dependant on the procedure but this is done under general anesthetic and the operation can last up to three hours.
What results can you expect?
Correction of the problem Large ears are reduced in size and protruding ears are set back with immediate results which are permanent.
Side effects and after-care: After consultation with our surgeon, you will be given careful, thorough and specific instructions to help the healing and asked back for a follow-up appointment to check on your progress.
It will be necessary to wear bandages around the ears for about a week to allow healing. Once the bandages and stitches are removed the results are immediately visible.
How long will it last: Permanently.
Cost: Dependant upon procedure but we can help with finance.
