- Minor Ops
Most patients only have minor pain and discomfort during the days following the ear reshaping surgery, this can be controlled with over the counter medications such as paracetamol and anti-inflammatory tablets.
Ears can be tender for 1-2 weeks following the initial surgery if the patient bumps their ear. However, by this time most patients are pain-free.
Ear Reshaping refers to a range of common cosmetic surgery procedures designed to correct the size and shape of the ear and ear lobe. Many people who dislike the shape or size of their ears develop habits to mask the problem (e.g. wearing their hair long), often being unaware of the quick, safe and effective solutions provided by surgery. Typical procedures include pinnaplasty (to pin back ears), ear reduction (to reduce the size of the ears) as well as the correction of a range of ear deformities either apparent at birth (easily corrected by moulding the ear as it grows) or acquired later in life through trauma, piercing, surgery or cancer.Go to Treatment
