Ear Surgery Gone Wrong    

When Cosmetic Surgical Negligence Occurs during an Otoplasty or Pinnaplasty, Call Cosmetic Surgery Solicitors.

Ear surgery sometimes known as otoplasty or pinnaplasty involves surgically correcting or changing the shape of a person’s ear by remodelling the ear cartilage into a less protruding shape. An otoplasty can reshape the ears, reduce their size, even the ears up and set the ears back closer to the patient’s head.

Ear reshaping can be done for cosmetic reasons, patients may feel that their ears stick out too much. In addition ear surgery can be performed to reconstruct a damaged ear or to fix a defective ear which is causing hearing problems for the patient. Ear surgery may refer to the correction of a number of different ear deformities including where there is too much cartilage or undeveloped middle fold of the ear. An otoplasty may be done on patients of any age once their ears have reached their full size, typically after 6 years of age.

Ear surgery is a common cosmetic procedure in the UK but when it goes wrong as a consequence of a negligent cosmetic surgeon or clinic then you may be entitled to compensation for any pain and suffering that you might have endured.

To pursue a successful ear surgery claim after your cosmetic surgery has gone wrong, you need expert otoplasty lawyers like Cosmetic Surgery Solicitors. Speak to us today on 0800 634 0285 or request a call back from one of our dedicated ear surgery negligence solicitors to start your claim for an ear surgery gone wrong.

The Prominence of Otoplasty Gone Wrong

Prominent or protruding ears can affect a person’s self-confidence greatly. Approximately 1 to 2% of the UK population think that their ears stick out too much. As ear surgery can dramatically change a person’s appearance simply by making protruding ears look more normal, it is not surprising that otoplasty is thus continually one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries in the UK every year. Ear surgery is particularly popular among male cosmetic surgeries. While ear surgery is often performed on children and adolescents, it is now also pretty common for adults.

The Ear Surgery Operation

Ear reshaping surgery is carried out under local anaesthetic and usually lasts about 2 hours. To start the ear surgery, the cosmetic surgeon makes an incision behind the patient’s ear where the ear is joined to the head. This exposes the ear cartilage so the plastic surgeon can remove the cartilage and skin required to achieve the desired ear appearance.

Alternatively the cosmetic surgeon will trim and reshape the cartilage before using permanent sutures to keep the ear cartilage pinned back. Finally, depending on the degree of prominence that the ears have, the plastic surgeon may just use stitches to keep the patient’s ear in place.

If you believe your ear surgery has gone wrong because it was carried out to a substandard level, you should contact us today on 0800 634 0285 to see whether you can make a successful claim for ear surgery compensation.

How an Ear Surgery Can Go Wrong

Following ear surgery, patients can resume most normal activities within a few weeks while maintaining protection of their reshaped ears for a further two months.

Unfortunately, cosmetic procedures such as ear surgery can sometimes be performed without the appropriate care and skill leading to complications and injury for the patient. Those indications of an ear surgery going wrong can include the following:

  • Uneven or asymmetrical looking ears
  • Uncorrected ear protrusion where the patient’s ears maintain their prominence.
  • Partial correction where the ears have not been placed close enough to the patient’s head.
  • Overcorrection where the ear surgery has left the patient’s ears positioned too close to the head

If you think your ear surgery was not performed to a professional standard you may be able to receive compensation when your ear reshaping went wrong. Cosmetic Surgery Solicitors want to help you get back on your feet again following otoplasty negligence so call us today on 0800 634 0285 to hear how you can make a claim for ear surgery compensation.
