        Pinnaplasty – Ear Pinning Surgery


        Pinnaplasty is a procedure that can help people overcome the embarrassment and distress caused by irregular shaped or protruding ears. Ear pinning surgery is used to create a natural and symmetrical looking appearance.

        Pinnaplasty is performed by refining or thinning the cartilaginous structure from behind the ear. Surgical incisions are ordinarily placed behind the ear in the natural crease (where the ear margin joins the side of the head) and consequently scars from this particular procedure are not usually visible.

        Occasionally, for the correction of large ear lobes, external incisions may need to be positioned on or around the lobe area, but these incisions are usually insignificant in size and tend to blend in with the natural contour and creases around the ear lobe once healing is complete.

        Following the surgical re-contouring of the cartilage, the skin at the back of the ear is redraped and secured in place by surgical sutures (stitches) and then supported in the new position by a carefully applied, turban style pressure bandage. This pressure bandage typically stays in place for around five to seven days following surgery.

        Please note that the EarFoldTM implant treatment is not available anymore due to discontinuation of earfold implant production.

        At 152 Harley Street, ear pinning surgery is carried out under Local Anaesthetic in our state-of-the-art day case theatre and you will be able to leave shortly after your procedure.

        FAQ


        What to Expect After Ear Pinning Surgery?

        When your pinnaplasty surgery is completed, your ears will be individually covered with small dressings, which are usually worn for one week.

        Following your ear pinning surgery you will be advised to wear a tennis headband for eight weeks at night and during any contact sports. This is to prevent your ears from being pushed forward whilst they are still settling. During the first week after surgery, this headband should be worn on top of the ear dressings.

        What is EarFoldTM Implant?

        EarFoldTM is an implant made of a short strip of nitinol. Nitinol is a metal alloy of nickel and titanium and is widely used in medicine. The implant consists of a curved, wafer-thin strip of metal (approximately the same thickness as a human hair) which is plated with 24-carat gold to reduce the visibility of the implant under the skin.

        The EarFoldTM implant has undergone extensive laboratory and human clinical testing over a period of several years. You can handle and inspect the EarFoldTM implant when you visit your consultant at 152 Harley Street.

        Please note that the EarFoldTM implant treatment is not available anymore due to discontinuation of earfold implant production.
