There are several techniques for ear pinning that can produce very pleasing results. The surgery involves reshaping of the cartilage of the ear with an inconspicuous incision made in the natural crease behind the ear. Surgery is carried out as a day case under local anaesthetic with sedation. A bandage that holds the ears back in their new position should be worn for up to a week following surgery. 

Your Westbourne Centre surgeon will give impartial advice and have a thorough discussion with you on the nature of the surgery, and your suitability for ear correction. You will be fully informed about the implications of having this operation including the limitations of the technique, the position of the scars and any possible short-term or long-term complication.

The final decision to have surgery is your own personal choice.
