Ear Pinning Surgery FAQs

Will the NHS Pay for My Ear Pinning?

A cosmetic ear pinning procedure is not normally available on the NHS. It may, however, be carried out if there is evidence of significant psychological distress.

Do I Need a GP Referral for Ear Pinning Surgery?

Most surgeons are happy to see you for an ear pinning consultation without a referral from your GP. They may, however, need to contact your GP for details of your medical history.

In rare cases, some medical conditions may need a sign off from your doctor prior to having the surgery, but your Patient Care Adviser will let you know if this applies to you.
