Setting back prominent ears

About 2% of the UK population consider their ears to be too prominent so you’re not alone! Often the shape and position of your ears is inherited, sometimes one ear is more prominent than the other. People with prominent ears are sometimes teased, particularly during their school years, and this can lead to a loss of self confidence.

What type of problems can ear surgery improve?

Prominent ears (bat ears) – if your ears stick out, one ears sticks out more than the other or if your ears are too big then ear surgery can help. Typically ears stick out due to incomplete folding of the antehelical fold, a deep conchal fossa (bowl) or a conchal fossa that sticks out or a combination of these features. Pinnaplasty (otoplasty) reshapes and sets back your ears. 

Macrotia (big ears).

ome people just have big ears. Macrotia reduction makes big ears smaller and neater and match better. We reduce the part of the ear that is expanded, whether that be just the ear lobe or the whole ear. 

Split ear lobes

Split ear lobe repair does what it says on the tin. It is a little bit more complicated than just stitching the split and produces a lovely normal looking ear lobe. You can safely pierce your ear again if you must!

What does ear surgery involve?

There are a number of different ways to improve your ears depending on the problem. After careful assessment of your ears size and shape, we will discuss how we can improve them. Most involve making a cut on the back of your ears, reshaping and repositioning them. Ear surgery can be done safely with you awake (local anaesthetic). However some patients choose to be asleep (general anaesthetic). You can go home he same day and most of our patients return to their normal activities and work in a week or so and are back to all activities in a few weeks. Typically ears takes a few months to settle fully.

Before treatment

Initial assessment

At Perfecta your care is led by your Consultant Plastic Surgeon. Your initial assessment with your surgeon takes around half an hour and includes specialist assessment and discussion about how we can help you achieve the result you want. We will go through your options for treatment and then discuss your ear correction with you so you understand what is involved and answer any questions you may have. We will discuss your hospital care, anaesthetic and recovery and your aftercare plan. We will also discuss the potential risks and complications of surgery, so you are fully informed.

After your appointment we will send you information about your treatment options and provide you with a fixed cost for your package of care. We will then give you time and space to decide what you would like to do. When you are ready our office team will help you book a date for your procedure.

Preassessment appointment

A few weeks before your procedure you will have an appointment with our nurses for a pre-operative medical. Our nurses will tell you everything you need to know for the day of your procedure, such as what time to come in to the hospital and what to bring with you. If you have any questions about these details or anything else then please ask your nurse or feel free to email or call us.

Do your research

Read up on your treatment options before your appointment. Good sources of information are our website and the BAPRAS website (www.bapras.co.uk) and BAAPS website (www.baaps.co.uk). It can be helpful to read blogs written by people who have had your procedure. But bear in mind they only have experience of their own journey. Your expert Consultant Plastic Surgeon and our experienced nurses have looked after hundreds of patients and have an unrivalled level of knowledge and understanding to help you. Ask us anything you want to know.

Can I get finance?

The private hospitals we work with offer finance for your procedure. Please ask for further details at your consultation or click here for more information.

On the day of your procedure

Things to bring

Bring your phone and charger and a book or magazine. There is always a lot of waiting around in hospital so bring things to keep you amused. There is a TV in your private room and your partner, family member or friend can stay with you the whole time. Bring you dressing gown and slippers and you can stay comfortable in your favourite things whilst you wait.

Will I see my Consultant Plastic Surgeon on the day?

When you arrive at the hospital you will be shown to your private room and your nurse will get you ready for your procedure. At Perfecta your care is led by your Consultant Plastic Surgeon and you will see them again on the day of your procedure to go through some final paperwork, including the hospital consent form, take photographs for your medical records and do your pre-operative markings. Then you are ready to go.

Who will give my anaesthetic?

If you choose to be asleep then you will meet your Consultant Anaesthetist on the day. They will complete your pre-operative assessment to make sure you are safe and ready to go ahead. They will talk you through the anaesthetic and your recovery. We take great care to make your procedure as smooth as possible and do lots of things to help you wake up without feeling sore or sick. 

Your package of care

All of your after-care is provided as part of your package of care, so you don’t have to worry about a thing. When you are ready to go home, the nurses will give you an appointment for your first check up and removal of your splint a week later. You will see your Consultant Plastic Surgeon 3 months after surgery. If you have any problems in between appointments then don’t worry, just give us a call, speak to the nurses and come back to see us.

When can I go home?

You can go home straight after your procedure if you are awake (local anaesthetic) or a few hours after general anaesthetic. Sometimes we use a head dressing after ear surgery for a week. After that we suggest you use a wide head band at night for another 6 weeks.

When can I return to normal activities and work?

Please gently return to all your normal activities straight away. Most patients are back work a week or so after ear surgery and are back to everything, Including the gym, in a few weeks.

Sun protection and skin conditioning

Your ears will be more sensitive in the sun for a while after surgery. Look after yourself in the sun, particularly in the first six months after your procedure. Factor 50 suncream and lots of moisturising cream (or Bio-oil) are helpful
