Who is a Good Candidate?
Good candidates for a pinnaplasty include men and women (or children whose ears are nearly fully grown (8+) and have sufficient maturity to understand the procedure) who are healthy and have prominent ears.
Who is not a Good Candidate?
Smokers, patients with multiple or untreated medical problems. Those who have been encouraged by others to change their appearance and those with unrealistic expectations should not have this surgery.
What to Expect at Consultation
At your initial consultation I will take a full medical history including all details of current and past illnesses, medications (prescribed or otherwise), lifestyle and past history of any previous surgery. We will discuss what it is that you do not like about your ears and what you are hoping to improve. It is important to be open and honest at this stage with regard to what troubles you and what your expectations are so that we have a shared vision of what you are hoping to achieve.
