Ear Reshaping (Octoplasty or Pinnaplasty)

Ear reshaping (Otoplasty or Pinnaplasty) are a common and relatively straightforward Cosmetic procedure. It is usually performed to help enhance a person’s self-image, and therefore is a very personal decision to make. Therefore when things go wrong it can be very difficult to face.

The aim is to re-model cartilage. In infants under 6 months this is done by using ear-splinting techniques to reset the soft cartilage. For those over 6 months Otoplasty or Pinnaplasty are performed whereby the cartilage is remodelled to create the missing folds and to therefore position the ears more closely to the head. When things go wrong they can include:

  • Bleeding and blood clots
  • An asymmetrical result
  • Infection
  • Poor Wound Healing
  • Change in sensation
  • Skin colour irregularities
  • Swelling
  • Excessive Scarring
  • Only partial correction achieved, or over-correction.

If you think you or a loved one have suffered a poor standard of care as a result of your Ear-Reshaping, please Contact Us to discuss how we could manage your claim on a No Win No Fee basis.

from our CLIENTS

I am writing to you personally to say thank you to Attwood's for a job well done with my recent claims. It initially started out as one claim, but eventually became a little more complicated when another was added following a review of my condition by one of your dental experts. Throughout the last couple of years as the claim has progressed I have been fully supported by your colleague Luke Taylor. I have thanked him personally for all the good work and support he gave me over the last couple of years, it was quite a journey for both of us but with the right outcome, but I just wanted to also highlight to yourself the good service and support he provided me with. It was very much needed and appreciated. He has always been very professional and the advice he has given has always been with real feeling and thought, and not the "just my job" attitude. Even when I was very wary of what to do next, he always explained it in simple terms for me understand and move forward. If I ever need similar help in the future, your company will be the first I contact. With my sincere appreciation and regards.
