Many people are conscious of their ears, particularly if they are large or protruding, but this simple procedure can correct any of that.
The procedure is carried out under local or general anaesthetic and takes approximately 1 hour depending on the surgery that is to be performed. A small incision is made behind the ear in the natural crease. Skin and cartilage is usually removed or pinned to create a new shape, finishing with a few stitches.
Do they stay in place after surgery?
Yes as the cartilage is removed and the ears are sewn into place.
Does the surgery hurt?
It can be uncomfortable for a few weeks and you may feel headachy but a compression headband should be worn and will help with the healing process.
