Ear/Earlobe Correction (Pinnaplasty/Otoplasty)
Men and women can suffer from large or protruding ears, or split or misshapen earlobes. These features can cause embarrassment and ridicule, and damage confidence and self-esteem.
Who is the procedure suitable for?
Both men and women from their late teens up to adulthood.
What can I expect?
The surgeon makes a small incision behind the ear, scores the cartilage and adjusts the projection so they lie flatter to the head. Large ear lobes are reduced by removing a wedge of flesh, reshaping what remains and restitching the skin. This is a relatively simple procedure performed under local or general anaesthetic. The procedure takes around one hour to perform.
This procedure has an extremely high satisfaction rate for both men and women.
