Ear pinning surgery
The procedure usually takes two hours for both ears and is performed under a general anaesthetic. In some cases, it may be possible to perform the surgery under local anaesthesia. During the procedure, the ear cartilage is reshaped using stitches or carefully moulded to achieve the desired result. You will usually wake up with dressings on the ear and a head bandage which will stay in place for a few days after surgery.
Earfold™ is an excellent option for ear reshaping. It is performed under a local anaesthetic and has a shorter recovery time compared to more formal reshaping surgery. Mr Lakhani will be able to show you the likely result you can expect with Earfold™ during your consultation. The procedure involves careful placement of extremely thin, discreet clips under the skin of the ear to bring the shape of the ear into a less prominent position and shape. Mr Lakhani Is able to provide the Earfold™ procedure at the Harley Street clinic, the Lister Hospital, Chelsea and at St. Anthony’s Hospital, Surrey.
