If you’ve struggled with disliking the look or shape of your ears, a simple procedure could ease this discomfort permanently. Ear pinning, also known as otoplasty or pinnaplasty, is a popular surgery to achieve a more proportionate or symmetrical ear shape and size. While the procedure is relatively simple, the benefits are wide-ranging – transforming self-esteem, lifestyle choices and even career choices. And because the ears act as a frame to the face, ear pinning can make a huge difference to your immediate appearance.

So why Medbelle? With hand-picked surgeons, one-on-one patient guidance and partnerships with the UK’s leading hospitals, you’ll be supported by the UK’s highest-rated medical provider for your ear pinning in Birmingham.

Your Ear Pinning in Birmingham

Ear pinning, ear correction, otoplasty and pinnaplasty all refer to the same procedure. That is, changing the size, shape or position of the ears with the aim of achieving a proportionate and symmetrical ear appearance. This is done by realigning the ‘pinna’ of the ear.

The procedure usually lasts between 60 to 120 minutes. It might be done as a day procedure or you may have an overnight stay at the hospital. It starts with signing a consent form and discussing the desired goal of the surgery and marking the ear. During the surgery, general or local anaesthetic with or without sedation is used. It’s up to you and your surgeon which suits you best.

A small incision is made where the ear meets the head, showing cartilage. The surgeon uses this to reshape the ear, and secures it into a new position with permanent structures to prevent the ear protruding again, stitching the wound and wrapping a tight bandage around the head. Naturally, the scar here is rarely visible.

Once surgery is complete, you’ll recover from the anaesthetic and return home – usually on the same day. You’ll see the difference immediately, with the changes being appreciated even more after 3 to 6 months.
