What is ear correction surgery?

Ear correction surgery or pinnaplasty is a minor surgical procedure typically carried out to correct protruding ears. It's a very common surgical procedure and here at Victoria House Clinic we offer both Unilateral and Bilateral Pinnaplasty, which is where you can choose to correct one or both ears.

Why get pinnaplasty?

There are a few reasons as to why someone might want to have pinnaplasty. It's typically done for those with ears that are protruding or without a normal fold. Those with prominent ears can sometimes lack self-esteem and we're here to help bring your confidence back. Here are some reasons as to why you might be considering pinnaplasty:

Your ear correction procedure will be carried out in our CQC registered clinic by our Medical Director; Dr George Filobbos who is an esteemed Consultant Plastic & Reconstructive Surgeon.

Pinnaplasty Surgical Procedure

Pinnaplasty is a non-invasive, minor surgical procedure. During the procedure Dr George will make a small incision using a surgical blade in the crease behind the ear. The cartilage within the ear is then corrected and reshaped to achieve the desired look, before stitches are applied to reposition the ear.

This procedure is done under local anaesthetic and typically takes around 1 hour. Following the procedure you will be taken into our recovery room here in the clinic to rest  following the surgery before you are free to go home. 

Is pinnaplasty a safe treatment?
Yes, this treatment is extremely safe and carried out by our Medical Director. We have a team of trained medical experts on site here in our CQC registered clinic to ensure your safety before, during and after treatment.
