Don’t let your ears dictate your hairstyle

11/05/2012 (press release: OnlinePR)

With buns, plaits, braids, twists and ponytails leading the runway for AW 2012, The Harley Medical Group, the UK’s leading cosmetic surgery group, offers Otoplasty [ear reshaping] surgery to help patients achieve more confidence with their appearance.

The shape, size and positioning of the ears can make a huge difference to how happy people feel about their appearance. Whether you’re a bride on your big day, a professional in the workplace, or simply going on a first date, being comfortable in your own skin can play a big part in feeling confident in all social situations.

The surgery is a straightforward procedure which will leave no visible scarring – this is ensured by the experienced surgeons at The Harley Medical Group, who making small and discreet surgical incisions behind and within the ears. Otoplasty is most commonly sought by people whose ears are prominent and who therefore want them setting closer to the head and reducing in size (or both). However, it can be used to simply alter the shape or size of the ears; which is achieved by removing the skin, reshaping the cartilage underneath and stitching the ears before bandaging the area.

The procedure is one of the most popular surgical treatments to restore confidence. Taking between one to three hours to complete, and patients will be required to wear bandages for only 7-10 days after the procedure.

Andrea Clarke, Otoplasty patient at The Harley Medical Group, says: “I decided to have surgery last year. After spending hours every day for years trying to style my hair so it would disguise my ears, I decided not to wait any longer. I’m so pleased I’ve had it done; I’m more proud of my appearance than ever before, and feel free to wear my hair any way I want. It has had a huge impact on meeting and socialising with new people, and even my work – where I am required to give presentations often.”
