What is Ear Pinning Surgery?

Usually, ear pinning is performed under local or general anaesthetic to prevent pain from the procedure. The surgery lasts roughly 1- 2 hours. During your procedure, your surgeon usually makes an incision at the back of your ear. They will then peel off a layer of skin from the cartilage. The shape of the cartilage will then be changed, allowing for your ears to be closer to your head. Once this is complete, the wound will be closed.

After ear pinning surgery, you may be able to return home the very same day; however, occasionally you may have to stay one night. You will usually have dressings to wear around your head for the first few days before they can be removed and replaced with a headband following the surgery. After 6 weeks, you may see the results of your surgery.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long does Ear Pinning surgery take?
Usually, otoplasty surgery takes around 1-2 hours to complete. If conducted under local anaesthetic, you should be able to go home on the same day as your surgery.
What is the best age for Ear Pinning Surgery?
Ear pinning should always be done once the ears have reached their full size. There isn’t really a perfect adult age to have ear pinning surgery; however, the earlier you have it done in your adult life, the less complications of surgery are present, no matter how rare.
Is Ear Pinning surgery dangerous?
Like any other type of major surgery, ear pinning poses a risk of bleeding, infection and an adverse reaction to anaesthesia. Whilst this is true of ear pinning, it is also true of any other surgery, so it is not exclusive. It is important to discuss with your surgeon the benefits and risks before coming to your conclusion.
