Prominent Ear Correction

Treatment overview

Prominent ears are a common problem which can result in harmful teasing at school when they occur in children, and remain a source of concern for some adults too.

The aim of prominent ear surgery (also known as otoplasty) is to change the position of the ears, setting or pinning them back so they sit closer to the head rather than excessively protrude. Otoplasty can improve the appearance of patients’ ears, restoring confidence and stopping any unwanted attention or bullying. In adults, this procedure can lead to increased confidence in personal appearance.

To find out more information about Otoplasty in Marylebone, London, or to book a consultation please contact us via our contact form.

This form of surgery has very high patient satisfaction rates, greatly improving the appearance of those who opt for it. Many adults choose to undergo otoplasty as a day case procedure using local anaesthetic only. In the case of children, Mr Khoda recommends a general anaesthetic and an overnight stay in hospital.

The surgery usually involves an incision behind the ear and sutures to pin the ears into their new position. It is often necessary to manipulate the cartilage, recreating the antihelical fold, using permanent sutures for long-lasting results.

Absolutely. Mr Khoda relies heavily on consultation to communicate your surgical options and risks, while gaining a full understanding of your goals. You will most likely see him twice before surgery, and are encouraged to raise any concerns or ask questions at any stage.

Most patients take a week off work after prominent ear correction surgery. After the operation your ears will be protected and held in place by special dressings and bandages, which are to be worn for 7 days. We or a member of hospital staff will be in touch to check on the process of your recovery. After seven days you will still have some post-surgical bruising and swelling, but this will settle over the course of several weeks while the sutures behind your ears are dissolving. Mr Khoda recommends wearing a headband at night for 3 months to hold the ears in position while you sleep.

There are general risks from surgery, including bruising, bleeding, swelling, infection, complications with general anaesthetics, abnormal scarring, and keloid (ridged, prominent) scarring. Risks specific to this surgery include tenderness of the ears, numbness, pain, post-operative bleeding, a need to return to theatre, pressure from dressings and sutures on the ears, thick scarring, and loss of intended shape.

It is important to rest after surgery. Mr Khoda recommends you avoid anything but the lightest activities for several weeks and intensive activities or exercise for 6 weeks.
