Ears are a very visible part of the face. People born with protruding or abnormally shaped ears are very self-conscious and often experience bullying as children. This is not only a source of anxiety for the children but also their parents. Dr. Faisal recommends that children be at least 5 years before attending a consultation

There are typically 2 fundamental issues which can cause prominent ears

The fold within the ear may be absent or underdeveloped, or the cartilage in the back of the ear may be overdeveloped causing the ear to rest further away from the side of the head

Otoplasty or pinnaplasty aims to fix issues with the appearance of the ears, and it does that through a variety of techniques that all address a certain issue about a person’s ears, be it asymmetry, size, or deformity. 

What is Otoplasty?

Otoplasty or pinnaplasty is performed under general anaesthetic

The incision is concealed in the crease behind the ear

The absent fold is simulated and its position marked. Sutures are then carefully placed to recreate the fold

 If there is excess cartilage also contributing to the problem then this is carefully removed.

Dissolvable sutures are used to close the wound

A bulky helmet-shaped dressing is then applied. This is designed to protect the ear, maintain the shape of the ear and to help minimise any bleeding

What is the Recovery for Otoplasty?

The patient will awaken with a large dressing wrapped around the ears and head

Local anesthetic applied to the ears will minimise the pain. Pain killers and antibiotics will be given on discharge despite the procedure not being associated with pain

Dr. Faisal recommends that the patient rest for the following week

The dressing will be removed at 1 week

It is normal for there to be a lot of swelling at this time and the ears to look unusual

The dressing will be replaced with a  sports headband. This needs to be worn at all times for the next 3 weeks and at night for the 2 weeks following this

The patient must not engage in any sport or contact activity for the following 6 weeks

A further clinic visit will be done at 2 weeks and 6 weeks

How Can I Prepare For The Surgery?

Dr. Faisal recommends that children have the surgery during the school holidays, as a recovery period of 4 weeks will be necessary

Adults would require a 1-week vacation from work

Purchase a sports headband

Adults are asked to stop smoking 3 weeks before the procedure as smoking harms wound healing

I had breast augmentation surgery with Dr Faisal and I honestly couldn’t recommend him enough. The whole process from consultation to aftercare appointments was professional, caring and to the highest standard. He listened to what I wanted and the results are incredible. I would have any future treatments done by Dr Faisal and would send anyone I know to him also.

Been looking for doctors over years now both in Dubai and India. Never felt fully comfortable with anyone to go forward with the procedure, then I came across Dr. Faizal, found him while I was doing research online and read a lot of positive reviews. Went down for a consultation, a really gem of a person. Immediately felt comfortable, he explained me everything in detail, assured me and got exactly what I wanted and the price was reasonable as well. The hospital the surgery was held at had the best services and staff as well. They took care of everything and made me feel safe and comfortable throughout the procedure. Came back home the same day, I'm at 6 weeks post op now, and the healing is wonderful and now I feel much more confident, all thanks to him. If anyone is looking for a breast augmentation, I would definitely suggest to go for a consultation with him and decide for themselves.
good choice

Having done a lot of research and looked around Dubai for the best possible option for us, we found Dr Faisal, and I'm so glad we did! The non judgemental and honest advice throughout as well as his pre and post op care is incredible and has been there every step of the way for me. Thank you so much Dr Faisal for everything :).

I came to Dr.Faisal not sure of anything. I wasn’t happy with my body as I had a lot of excess skin due to massive weight loss. I was scared of the idea of a surgery, so came in hoping for an alternative. Here I am months - 3 months post my surgery, wearing a pair of jeans that would have never fit me before. I had a lower body lift surgery done, and I must say my results are amazing. My body has changed so much, and I am very very happy with the way I look now. Dr.Faisal is a great doctor. He will make sure you are aware of everything before and after the procedure and is always there for his patients. My favorite trait about him is that he is always available. Being a patient who has low pain tolerance, and someone who worries a lot, I would always call him. I would have a lot to ask before and after the surgery- and he was always there. It didn’t matter what day or time it was, he made sure to help with every little thing and I am very grateful for him. Thank you doctor, I can now sit without having layers of my stomach falling down, I can now wear my clothes much more confidently and can finally say I love my body.

I can’t recommend Dr Faisal enough, he gets me the results I want every time. He answers all of my questions in depth and explains how and why he does things and makes me feel comfortable. I wouldn’t go to anyone else!

Two words to describe my experience with Dr. Faisal: life changing. I had a breast reduction and it has changed my life! The procedure itself was painful for the first 2 hours and much to my surprise I was ready to go home only 4 hours after waking up and ready to return to work only 3 days later. My back, neck and shoulders feel great, my posture is better and I couldn't be happier! I recommend Dr. Faisal and the surgery 100%, my only regret is not finding him 10 years sooner! Thank you Doc!!

Dr Faisal is a skilled surgeon who is extremely meticulous and I would highly recommend him. He has a pleasant and calm demeanor which puts you at ease. He looks at the whole person and what they want to achieve and relays realistically what can be done which helps set the right level of expectation from the outset. He shows compassion throughout the process which makes you feel like you are in good hands. Overall Dr Faisal exceeded my expectations and I am so pleased with my results!
