Love your ears

Cosmetic ear reshaping, also known as an otoplasty or pinnaplasty procedure, is a surgical procedure that aims to correct any irregularities in ear shape or size. The most common procedure is where overly prominent ears are pinned back and this is often performed on children as young as five. Correcting the problem at an earlier age means the child won’t suffer from any of the distress and embarrassment this problem can cause.

Mr. Tariq Ahmad also sees many adult patients seeking treatment for prominent ears. It is possible to reshape and resize the ears and, in particular, the ear lobes. During consultation, Mr Ahmad will take a full medical history and then explain what it is possible to achieve with this procedure. If he feels that your expectations are realistic, an ear reshaping procedure can be a relatively simple with a high rate of patient satisfaction. Ear reconstruction is a topic in its own right and Mr Tariq Ahmad has special expertise in these procedures which he would be happy to discuss with you at a consultation. Book Consultation

Before & After

  • You will need to sleep upright, well-supported with pillows for 2 weeks following surgery.
  • The head bandage needs to remain in place for the amount of time specified by your Consultant, usually 7 to 10 days.
  • Take painkillers as directed, these are usually Paracetamol-based. Please avoid taking any Aspirin-based medication as these can cause bleeding.
  • Stitches used are usually absorbable.
  • Hair can be washed after removal of the head bandage. Please be careful and gentle around the ear area.
  • It is recommended that a protective head band be worn over the ears at night to prevent the ears being bent forward against the pillow for 6 weeks after surgery.
  • The ears are often a little numb after the operation and this usually takes several weeks to settle.
  • Be careful when taking clothing off over the head not to catch the ears.
  • Please refrain from smoking as this prevents good wound healing
  • If you are prescribed antibiotics, it is important that you complete the course.
  • Avoid strenuous activity for at least two weeks (walking and gently stretching is fine).
  • Avoid contact sports for a minimum of 6 to 8 weeks. It is advisable to wear a protective head band whilst taking part in contact sports in the future.
  • Depending of your job, you should be able to return to work/school within 2 weeks after the operation.
  • Should you experience undue pain, excessive swelling, redness, hardness, a raised temperature, feel unwell or if your head bandage comes off before the specified length of time it is to be worn, please contact the hospital where you had your procedure, or your Consultant directly if you have been asked to do so.
