Otoplasty procedures

If you are unhappy with the size or shape of your ears, Otoplasty could be the right choice for you.

Ear correction surgery, or Otoplasty, is a simple cosmetic surgery procedure that works on enhancing the appearance of your ears by removing or reshaping the cartilage that sits inside. The procedure can help ‘pin back’ ears that stick out, make larger ears smaller or improve the overall appearance of your ears.

More details on ear correction surgery

When you come to Transform, the entire experience is designed around you and your needs. We’ll listen carefully to your aspirations, and you’ll receive all the advice and support you need throughout your journey with us. Here’s a step-by-step guide to what you can expect from your cosmetic surgery.


1. Your first appointment

The first step is to meet your patient advisor. You’ll be able to talk to them about why you’re considering ear correction surgery, the likely costs and finance options, how much time you may need to take off work, and when you’d like to have the surgery. If you feel ready, we’ll then book you in for your free consultation with one of our surgeons.


2. Your surgical consultation

At your free consultation, your surgeon will ask you about the results you want to achieve from the surgery. You can discuss every aspect of your ear correction surgery – from the different procedures to the benefits and risks – with no obligation to go ahead. Our surgeons are extremely knowledgeable and happy to answer any questions you have.

Your surgeon will discuss the right surgery method to correct the concern you have and the results you can expect. If you feel ready to go ahead and book your surgery, they’ll then refer you to a clinic nurse who’ll perform some pre-op tests and procedures.


 3. The surgery

In most cases, ear correction surgery takes around two hours and is performed under local anaesthetic, so there’s no hospital stay. On the day of your surgery, you’ll meet with your surgeon so you can go through the consent form and ask any last-minute questions.

You’ll know in advance which ear correction method your surgeon will use. This will usually involve making incisions behind your ears and then removing or reshaping the cartilage, so any scars will be hidden. Most of our patients are able to leave the hospital within a few hours of their procedure. 


4. Recovery

We’ll be here throughout the recovery process after your ear surgery to help you recuperate quickly and safely. Your ears are likely to be sore, swollen and bruised to begin with and the area will be bandaged. You’ll need to wear this bandage for about a week, during which time you won’t be able to drive because it will muffle your hearing.

Before you go home we’ll talk to you about caring for your ears, make your follow-up appointment and give you the number for our 24/7 patient helpline. If you have any worries, you can speak to a member of our clinical team, day or night.


5. Aftercare

We believe that the highest quality aftercare is just as important as the surgery itself, so we’re here to support you. At your follow-up appointment, we’ll remove the bandage and you might then need to wear a smaller headband at night for a few more weeks until your ears are fully healed from your Otoplasty. You may need to take a week off work for the initial healing period, and it’ll be around six weeks before you’ll be able to resume activities like contact sports and swimming.

If you have any questions or concerns at all, you can contact our 24/7 helpline. All patients have access to our three-year aftercare programme as standard and you’ll have the option to extend cover to up to 10 years.
