Otoplasty at 38 Years Old - Very Happy! - London, GB

As many people will say, this is something I...

As many people will say, this is something I wanted to do for many years, in fact since I was seven? years old. After many years of deliberation and also have the money to do it, I am embarked upon extensive research. All of it pointed towards Dr Gault(London, UK) being a world leader in corrective ear surgery. I visited him and although he has a very dry sense of humour he is clearly very talented.

My advice at this point is that you need to relax and totally trust Dr Gault, if you are highly strung, his approach will not suit you.

You pay a premium to have surgery with him and I saw prices that were half as much, I would strongly suggest that you get what you pay for. Stating the obvious your ears are very prominent and you really want it to go well. Dr Gault mentioned that he spends a good proportion of his time fixing failed Otoplasty procedures.

About the procedure

I will keep this brief; the first two days are tough, the pain was immense. The bandage is also extremely uncomfortable and needs to stay on for seven days. I was very nervous going back but to say I was pleased with the result would be an understatement. It made me look completely different, and I was very pleased.

You need to wear a headband at night for six weeks.

About eight weeks later I had a slight recurrence on my right ear, it 'popped out' to be around 7mm more than the other ear. I waited six months though before going back to ensure the swelling had reduced.
I went to see Dr Gault, he was very understanding and suggested that we have a revision procedure. This was very easy, almost no pain and swelling and no my ears are perfect!

In summary, I couldn't be happier and would highly recommend anyone considering this to get it done. But I would say, make sure you use a good surgeon!
