Ear Pinning (Pinnaplasty)

Ear pinning procedures are a popular surgery for clients who are unhappy with the prominence, shape or size of their ears, leading them to feel insecure about their appearance. Ear correction surgery, also known as a pinnaplasty, can reshape your ears and make them less prominent.

Is this right for me?

The stitches to the skin need to be removed at 1 week following surgery. You will not need head dressings or bandages. We advise to wear a headband at night for comfort and to protect the ears.

The ears will be bruised and swollen after surgery but this will settle over the few weeks following surgery. The final result is generally apparent by 3 months.

What does this involve?

Prominent ear correction surgery, or pinnaplasty can be carried out under local anaesthetic and is a day-case procedure. It involves making a small cut behind the ear and then setting the ears back. This is achieved by re-shaping, folding or removing the cartilage and then securing the position of the ears with stitches. There are minimal dressings and no drains.
