Procedure Overview

Pinnaplasty is a surgical procedure performed to correct prominent or misshapen ears. It aims to improve the appearance and position of the ears by reshaping the cartilage.

The surgery is commonly done for both children and adults who are unhappy with the appearance of their ears.

Operation Technique

    • The surgery is typically done under local anesthesia with sedation or general anesthesia.
    • The surgeon makes an incision behind the ear to access the cartilage.
    • Cartilage is reshaped, excess tissue is removed, and the ear is repositioned closer to the head.
    • Stitches are used to secure the new ear shape.
    • The incision is closed, and a dressing is applied.

Recovery Period

After Pinnaplasty, patients may experience mild discomfort, swelling, and bruising.

A headband or dressing is worn to protect the ears during the initial healing phase.

Most people can return to normal activities within a week, but strenuous exercise should be avoided for a few weeks.

Full recovery may take several weeks, and final results become apparent over time.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Ear Pinning or Pinnaplasty is surgery to reshape the ears and pin them back so that they don’t stick out. Ear correction surgery can transform the size, shape, and prominence of the ears. Bella Vou provides Pinnaplasty by highly-skilled cosmetic surgeons and a comfortable, supportive environment in which to recover.

Some people with prominent ears suffer teasing and taunts that last beyond the school playground. Pinnaplasty can treat ears that stick out or are large, asymmetrical, or out of proportion with your features. If your ears make you self-conscious and are affecting your self-esteem, ear correction surgery can alter their size, contour, and profile and restore your confidence.

Ear correction surgery is carried out under local anaesthetic. It is a day-case procedure, so you won’t have to stay in hospital overnight.

The specialist surgeon makes small cuts in the skin behind the ears and then re-shapes, folds, or removes some of the cartilage to transform the appearance of the ears. The ears are secured in their new position, close to the head, with stitches. If there is asymmetry between your ears, the surgeon can correct this, for a more balanced, harmonious appearance.

It’s normal for the ears to be bruised and swollen after surgery. This gradually settles over the following two to three weeks. As you recover, the specialists at Bella Vou recommend that a headband is worn at night to maintain your comfort and to protect the ears. The headband should be worn for four to six weeks. The final result of your Ear Pinning surgery should be apparent after three months

You should take it easy and avoid strenuous activity for two to three weeks following ear correction surgery. Gradually increase exercise as you regain fitness, by six weeks you should be back to normal.

The headband supports the ears, maintains their position, and stops them from getting knocked or disturbed at night. You should wear it every night for four to six weeks, or as recommended by your surgeon.
