Correcting prominent ears / Ear pinning (Otoplasty)
Ear surgery is undertaken to correct prominence or abnormal folds of the ears.
Individuals can sometimes be self-conscious about such prominence or folds and ear surgery can significantly improve the appearance.
At your initial consultation we take the time to understand your requirements and explain the ear surgery procedure to you (including post-op recovery information), and estimate costs.
The initial consultation takes approximately 30–45 minutes.
All cosmetic face surgery procedures are undertaken at Bowen Hospital, Wellington.
- A day case procedure
- Option of using either local or general anaesthetic
- Sutures and dressings will be removed one week after surgery
- You will need to wear a headband at night for six weeks
See the patient information leaflet for further information.
