What is Otoplasty?
Prominent ears are a feature that troubles many people, making them self-conscious and affecting their confidence. Ear Reshaping is a quick and highly successful procedure that leaves virtually no trace of surgery.
With Otoplasty Surgery for men, the ear is reshaped by removing skin and reshaping the cartilage 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.

What is the recovery time like?
An Otoplasty usually takes 2 hours and will require an overnight stay in hospital. You will need to take 5 days off work to recover; the exact time will depend on the extent of the surgery.
You can experience some soreness after the procedure this typically lasts a couple of days, your aftercare will be managed with the support of your Consultant Plastic Surgeon and nurse to ensure you the safest and most comfortable recovery.
How should I prepare for my procedure?
There are a few elements to this: preparation will begin with your initial consultation with our Consultant Plastic Surgeon, you will also meet with one of our Registered General Nurses. They will both go through every aspect of the surgery and your recovery with you.
You will come in once more before your surgery to have a further comprehensive pre-operative assessment with your River Medical Registered General Nurse.
The Consultant Plastic Surgeon will be available to you right up until your surgery should you wish to see him again.
Why do you not have before and after pictures on the website?
Before and after pictures on websites can be misleading as they may not be patients of the surgeon who will be doing your surgery.
As every person wanting Otoplasty has completely different expectations, it is a much more valuable tool for your Consultant Plastic Surgeon to show pictures of not only Otoplasty procedures that he as actually done but also show you results you will be likely to receive.
