Medically known as an Otoplasty, or ear pinning is the surgical procedure used to modify and correct the shape of the ears. Our team uses advanced tools to ensure that this surgery has next to no risks.

How is prominent ear surgery administered?
This treatment is performed under either general or local anaesthetic and does not require an overnight hospital stay. Small incisions are made behind the ear, and the cartilage is pulled toward the scalp following the reconstruction.
What happens after the surgery?
Swelling will begin to fade after three to five days, and you will be able to return to your usual routine within two weeks. This procedure does not affect hearing and leaves no scars.
If the procedure is carried out correctly, the chances of the ear reverting are minimal.
Is the surgery painful?
While these surgeries are performed under local anaesthesia resulting in no pain during the procedure, some postoperative aches and pains may occur. These can be relieved by taking prescribed painkillers.
