While not the most popular cosmetic surgery in the UK, ear correction surgery, is still in the top ten most requested cosmetic procedures. It also has one of the lowest risks. This doesn’t mean, however, that it isn’t important to choose the right surgeon. Here we look at what to look for in a surgeon when considering Ear Correction Surgery Bolton. First, though, what is ear correction surgery, and what does it involve?

What Is Ear Correction Surgery Bolton?

Ear correction surgery, or otoplasty, involves either ‘pinning back’ the ears or repairing or reducing the size of the ear lobes. The former is the most common, though the latter has become more popular in recent years.  Pinning back the ears is often done in children, starting at the age of eight, who have prominent ears and whose mental health is suffering as a result. It involves cutting and bending back the cartilage behind the ears, so they lie closer to the head.

Ear lobe surgery can repair damage, e.g. tears from piercings, or reduce their size (remember, our ear lobe continue to grow as we get older).

What To Look For In A Plastic Surgeon

While the risks and recovery time are low, a plastic surgeon must carry out ear correction surgery. Finding the right plastic surgeon is key. Do your research. Look for surgeons with a Specialist FRCS in plastic surgery, experience in otoplasty, and registrations with medical bodies.

These include the General Medical Council, British Medical Association, British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons and British Association of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgeons.
