Your Ear Pinning in London
Ears can be genetically disposed to sitting outwards away from the skull, or there might be a lack of a natural curve in the upper part of the ear, which can make the ears protrude away from the head. One of the ways you can correct this is by having your ears pinned, which is also known as an otoplasty.
To achieve more streamlined ears, your surgeon will make an incision behind the ear in order to expose and then reshape the cartilage. By making an incision here, this also ensures any scars will be very discreet.
Your surgeon will suture each ear into its new position, checking throughout that it is sitting correctly and much flatter to the head. Once they are happy with the new size, shape or positioning they will close the incision. Your ears will then be tightly bandaged to help stabilise their new positioning, where you will return to the ward.
As ear pinning is a short procedure taking between 1-2 hours to complete, you should be able to go home the same day. There are some aftercare steps you must take for the first few weeks, and it’s advised that you take at least 1 week off work to recover from surgery.
It may take 3-6 months for your ears to fully heal and settle into their new position.
