Ear Correction Surgery Procedure

There are a range of different ear correction surgeries that a patient may choose.

Ear lobe surgery takes place under general anaesthetic. In this surgery. the surgeon will repair a hole or tear with a suture. When reducing the size of the lobe, they will also remove a small piece before closing up the gap.

For protruding ears, the surgery is often described as pinning back. It works through the surgeon removing a portion of skin from behind the ear and breaking the cartilage so it bends backwards. The surgeon will then suture it in place to reposition the ears and minimise the protrusion. The aftercare procedure involves wearing a bandage for around a week but the recovery time is quick. Most patients are back to their normal activities very quickly and can enjoy the benefits of the surgery.
