Prominent ear correction is a common procedure performed by plastic surgeons and one of those procedures that any fully trained plastic surgeon will be able to do. In some ways it is like breast enlargement in that the core competency is reached relatively early in the training, but a true expert will have refined and honed the technique to another level.
There are not many experts in prominent ear correction and it is very rare for a plastic surgeon to specialise in it.
However, I am delighted to say that we have one of the few plastic surgeons in the country who specialises in ear reconstruction.
Mr Mark Lloyd is a Consultant Plastic Surgeon at Birmingham Children’s Hospital where he offers ear reconstruction to children who have been born with absent ears or deformed ears and has set up one of the few units in the country that deal with microtia, which is a congenital abnormality of the ear. So if you are looking for a specialist to perform prominent ear correction, you will not find anyone more qualified than Mr Lloyd.
Prominent ears is one of those things that affects people of all ages and we often see people who have gone through their lives not knowing that anything could be done about it.
The surgery is often performed in children because there can be a stigma and bullying associated with it during their formative years.
However, it can be performed at any age and certainly in the older age groups, it is a procedure that can be performed under local anaesthetic as a day case.
Our aftercare is unrivalled and our specialist nurse, Vicki, will get you through the initial stages of bruising and swelling.
The stitches are dissolvable and the scar is hidden in the fold behind the ear, and once it has settle it can be almost impossible to see.
Prominent ear correction is one of those life-changing operations that we perform as plastic surgeons and when you can see the change that happens in people you will realise why cosmetic surgery can be an immense force for good.
If you want to make a consultation to see Mr Lloyd, please contact us or call us on 0121 454 3680 as we offer free no obligation consultations with Mr Lloyd himself, who can talk you through the options available and what you can expect from surgery.
There is never any obligation to proceed and we will always give you the time and space you need before making any decisions.
We can treat all ages of patients for prominent ear correction, although when considering children, we would always want the child to be involved and engaged in the care and so it is usually reserved for children over the age of around 6.
When considering younger children the surgery will be done under general anaesthetic at our partner hospitals, but for older patients, it can be done under a local anaesthetic where you stay awake and are able to go home shortly after the procedure.
I have built the STAIANO Clinic on the foundations of giving the highest quality service delivered by the most highly trained professionals and I am delighted to be able to offer an ear reconstruction service at the STAIANO Clinic, and so if you need prominent ear correction or have any type of ear abnormality, we can help you with a free no obligation consultation.
We are pleased to bring the treatment of prominent ear correction to another level here in Birmingham and will continue to deliver a world class service to our patients.
If you have any questions feel free to get in touch or leave a comment and I would be happy to get back to you.
