Other Surgical Procedures Available

Beyond the common beauty and cosmetic surgical treatments, we also provide a wide range of surgical procedures for those looking for something in particular, including:


Birmingham Ear Surgery (Ottoplasty)

Corrective Ear Lobe Surgery, Birmingham

Pinnaplasty or correction of prominent ears is procedure to setback the ears to their natural and normal position. More commonly performed in children but correction can be done in adults.

Surgical procedure involves placing incision behind the ear and dissecting, remoulding and suturing the cartilage to give the normal appearance to the ear. The incision is closed with a Nylon stitch and a dressing that is held with a bandage around the forehead and head. This remains for ten days until the removal of suture.

The surgery is usually done under general anaesthetic however adults may prefer local anaesthetic and sedation. Operation is not particularly painful but with adequate analgesics can relieve the nausea and discomfort that may last for a day or two.

Birmingham Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty)

Birmingham Eye Lid SurgeryBlepharoplasty is surgical procedure that aims to restore younger look of the eyes. Aging causes sagging of the lids both upper and lower due to the weakness and the loss of elasticity of the skin. Drooping of the brow can falsely show as upper lid sag.

In the upper lid an incision is made along over the natural crease. Excess skin and some part of the skin is removed, fat around the eye is either removed or redraped in different plane and closed with nylon stitch.

In the lower eyelid the incision is placed just below the eyelashes along the eyelid margin. Fat is either removed or redraped and incision closed with a nylon stitch similar to upper lid. The ends of the stitch are taped on either end. These are removed in one week.

Upper eyelid procedure is usually done as local anaesthetic procedure however general anaesthesia is preferred if combined with lower lid procedure. It is performed as a day procedure or as an overnight stay.
