earStitch surgery is a safe , minimalist approach to prominent ear correction.
The procedure takes 15 minutes per ear.
It is usually performed under local anaesthetic as a day case procedure.
earStitch is suitable for all ears. Whether ear prominence is due to softness of the anti-helical fold (for which an earFold might also be suitable) or to having a deep conchal bowl, an earStitch procedure can always be used.
Using stitches, via a small cut on the back of the ear, the angle of the ear’s anti-helical fold is changed and the conchal bowl is set back.
No bandages are required.
Rapid return to normal activity.
Otoplasty/ Pinnaplasty (pinning back the ears): is a surgical procedure where the cartilage is remodelled to create the missing helical folds and position the ear closer to the head
