CONSULTATION

You will already have had a comprehensive clinic consultation with one of our surgeons to determine the best procedure to suit your requirements. On the day of surgery, you will be seen by your surgeon who will answer any questions you may have. You will also meet the nursing team who will get you ready for your operation and take care of your afterwards.

THE PROCEDURE

Depending on your individual circumstances, your Juvea surgeon will recommend your operation is carried out under either local or general anaesthetic – the majority are carried out under local anaesthetic in adults. The surgeon will inject the local anaesthetic to ensure that you will not feel any pain and then make an incision behind your ear in the crease between your ear and the side of your head. The surgeon may then use either permanent stitches beneath the skin, re-shaping of the cartilage, or a combination of both, to re-shape your ear and achieve your desired outcome. The skin will then be stitched with dissolvable stitched. The procedure takes around 45 minutes – 1 hour for each ear.
