Ear Pinning Surgery Recovery and Postoperative FAQs

When can I wear glasses again after my ear pinning?

As you will have to wear a headband after the ear pinning procedure, you cannot wear glasses at the same time. You will need to wear the headband day and night for 5 to 7 days, and for up to a month after surgery whilst you are sleeping. You should therefore wait until you no longer need to wear your headband to resume wearing your glasses again. This is so that you do not alter the newly set position and shape of your ears. This will usually be 3 weeks after surgery but can take longer. You should therefore consider buying prescription contact lenses for this time period.
