Correction of prominent ears (by pinnaplasty) is used to adjust the shape or position of ears that are considered to protrude (stick out) too much. This procedure has proven results with a high level of patient satisfaction and it can be carried out under local anaesthetic.
Around 2% of the UK population consider their ears to be too prominent. The ear is made of cartilage and skin and ears which stick out often lack one of the folds of cartilage which tucks the ear inwards towards the head. Prominent ears do not pose a medical problem, but they can make people feel self-conscious. A pinnaplasty aims to create a less prominent look to the ears. Sometimes only one ear will stick out and this procedure can be performed successfully on just one ear to make them ‘match’.
Once the anaesthetic has been administered, the Plastic Surgeon makes small cuts behind the ear to expose the cartilage. The cartilage is then reshaped to the required position and is held with two stitches which will remain in place. The initial cuts behind the ear are stitched up with additional absorbable stitches that do not need removal.
At the end of the operation a bandage is applied to hold the ears in position and protect them. The bandage is kept on for 7-10 days. A pinnaplasty takes between one and two hours to complete and patients can go home on the same day.
After the procedure, the ear/s will be sore and we would recommend normal painkillers (paracetamol for example) to ease the initial discomfort. You will be left with a small scar behind the ear/s but this should fade in time.
A minimum of 72 hours is required to reschedule, 7 days to cancel an appointment. Please see our T’s & C’s for full details.
