WHAT HAPPENS WHEN I HAVE SURGERY?

Before your ear reshaping surgeryEar Reshaping for Men

  • Your Surgeon will advise you when you are to discontinue and/or resume activities like smoking, or taking aspirin or any other medication.
  • You will be able to discuss any concerns with your cosmetic surgeon.
  • The evening before surgery, we would recommend that you wash your hair.
  • The bandage will be on for 7-10 days continuously and during this time you will not be able to wash your hair.

THE DAY OF YOUR EAR RESHAPING SURGERY

  • The Cosmetic Surgeon will visit you in your room and may mark the ears with a pen in preparation for your ear reshaping surgery.
  • Your Cosmetic Surgeon will also obtain your final consent, and answer any last minute questions you may have.
  • The surgeon will remove some of your skin and reshape the cartilage from behind the ears.
  • The ears are then stitched into the new position with the incision marks cleverly concealed in the natural crease behind the ear.
  • The ear reshaping surgery normally takes 2-3 hours to complete.

going home after ear reshaping surgery

  • There may be some residual bruising after your ear reshaping surgery, but the scars will now be well hidden behind the ears.
  • You should avoid sleeping on your sides in order to reduce ear pressure.
  • Once the bandages and any sutures are removed, we recommend regular hair washes/showers to clean behind the ear - avoiding rubbing, as the ear will remain tender for a while.
  • For further 7-10 nights we recommend you wear a sports headband to protect the ears whilst in bed.
  • It is very important that you attend the follow up post surgery appointment to care for your wound and see your Cosmetic Surgeon post-operatively to make sure that you are healing well.
  • You will have your own personal Nurse Counsellor both before and after your procedure to support you and answer any questions you may have.

Recovery from ear reshaping Surgery

  • You will need to wear bandages around your ears for about a week, at which time your stitches will be removed.
  • Once removal of the bandages, you will be able to see the results immediately.
