Changing the shape and position of your ears

If you’re unhappy with the way your ears look, we’re here to help. Our team is highly experienced in ear correction surgery and will support your through every step of your journey.

Ear surgery, or otoplasty, is a popular cosmetic procedure. It can improve the appearance of ears that protrude, that are overly large, or that have become misshapen. If you’re unhappy with the shape of your ears or feel that they ‘stick out’ too far, we understand this can affect your confidence.

Otoplasty can help by reshaping or removing your ear cartilage to ‘pin back’ the ears or change their shape or size to suit your facial proportions. Our team of leading cosmetic surgeons can advise you on reshaping your ears for the result you want to achieve.

More details on ear correction surgery


At The Hospital Group, we’re here to look after you. As UK market leaders in cosmetic surgery, we offer advice you can trust, treatment based on your individual needs, and support throughout your journey with us. Here’s a step-by-step guide to what you can expect.

Ear correction surgery Details

We want you to make a fully informed decision before you go ahead with surgery, so we offer a private consultation at your local clinic free of charge. At your consultation, you’ll meet with a cosmetic surgeon to discuss the ear correction options available and whether the surgery is the most suitable procedure for your needs. You’ll be able to ask questions about all aspects of the surgery, from ear size and shape to aftercare and the results you can expect. You’ll also meet your patient care coordinator, who will be with you every step of the journey. They will give you a personal quotation of costs and information about finance options, the expected timescale, our surgical facilities and door-to-door transport services.

At your consultation, you can book your surgery if you feel ready, but there’s no obligation to go ahead. Cosmetic surgery is a big step and you may want to take time to do more research and think about your decision. We’ll give you a patient information booklet, which provides comprehensive information on your procedure and aftercare. This is an important resource and we require patients to read the detailed information it contains. You’ll also find lots of helpful information here on our website – you can read about our surgeons’ qualifications, THG’s cosmetic surgery expertise and inspiring stories from some of our patients. Our patient care coordinators are available to discuss any concerns you may have. And when you feel ready, they can book you in for your procedure. We also have a 14-day ‘cooling off’ period in place, which means that if you change your mind about the procedure after booking within that period, you will not be charged.

On the day of your surgery, your medical team will make your experience as comfortable as possible and you’ll meet your surgeon again before the procedure. Otoplasty usually involves making incisions behind your ears. You’ll know in advance which ear correction method your surgeon will use. For ear pinning, cartilage is removed from behind the ear to reduce the protrusion of the outer ear shell. Ear correction surgery takes around two hours and is performed under local anaesthetic.

We’ll be here throughout the recovery process to help you recuperate quickly. For ear surgery you can normally leave the hospital on the same day as your procedure. Each patient is given a personalised care plan, developed with the advice of their surgeon. All THG hospitals are equipped to the highest standards of clinical care and patient comfort. Your ears are likely to be sore, swollen and bruised to begin with and the area will be bandaged. You’ll need to wear this bandage for about a week and many patients take a week off work for the initial healing period. It will be around six weeks before you are able to fully resume activities like sports and swimming.
