Overly large or very protruding ears can often negatively impact confidence and self-esteem and an otoplasty, also known as a pinnaplasty, is a popular surgical procedure to change the shape, size or the position of the ears.
Mr Mouzakis can perform the procedure either under general anaesthetic or under sedation. The procedure generally takes about two hours and depending on your unique
requirements, he will either remove any excess cartilage that is causing it to protrude. The ear can then be pinned in a closer position to the side of the head.
If the ears are too large, particularly the earlobes, excess skin and tissue can be removed, reshaping the ear.
As an alternative treatment for prominent ears, Mr Mouzakis also offers the Earfold from Allergan. The Earfold is a minimally invasive implant that works by gripping the cartilage of the ear, enhancing or creating the shape of the ear fold and pinning back prominent ears.
A very speedy procedure, taking approximately 15 to 20 minutes per ear, it is performed under local anaesthetic and has a much shorter recovery time than a surgical pinnaplasty.
