Our step by step process
Our Care Team will welcome you by phone and ask the necessary questions to schedule a suitable appointment. We will also ask about your current health, surgical time frame, and previous surgeries to help us prepare for your arrival. Again, we would be delighted to welcome you to our clinic!
Your first visit to us is a so-called pre-consultation. It will occur with our specialist, who will guide you as best as possible through this unique journey. First, a specialist is there to listen to your needs and concerns. Then, our specialist will share her expertise and knowledge while trying to match your wishes with the available range of services and treatments.
Secondly, we will show you different options based on the information provided, and together will discuss each care package.
The third step is choosing from our experienced physicians who would suit your treatment. Our specialist will show you the surgeon’s broad portfolio and give you a free copy of our Patient Information Guide to the surgery to reread at home.
The fourth and last step will be with the surgeon selected by our expert. We understand that one visit is not enough when deciding on your body and safety, which is why we encourage a second visit.
By now, we have also received and processed all data for a pre-operative screening.
During this consultation, the treatment’s technical aspects and possible risks are discussed, and you are prepared for the big day!
Arriving at this step of your journey, you have already met our medical team and received all the necessary information. All preparations have been made, and it is finally time for the treatment. We understand that this is a milestone for many. Therefore we do our utmost to make it as comfortable as possible. Our team will share your excitement with you right up to the surgery.
There are three to four check-ups depending on your healing:
The first check-up is three or four days after the surgery to determine whether the plasters can be removed. The second check-up is after one week at the plastic surgeon’s when the stitches are removed.
The third and final check-up is after about six weeks. The surgeon checks whether the wounds have healed properly and whether the eyelid correction has been successful. If a fourth check-up is necessary, it will occur three months after the surgery at the plastic surgeon’s. Our care team will help you with your preparations during your consultation with the surgeon and guide you after the surgery so that you know what to expect and heal as quickly as possible. You will receive a document with patient information before the surgery containing national advice. In addition, the surgeon and the care team will give you advice that is specific to you.
Stop smoking four weeks before the surgery.
Start taking Arnica drops two weeks in advance to reduce bruising and swelling.
If you are taking medication such as Marcoumar, Sintrom/Sintrommitis, or Asprocardio, consult your surgeon, the same applies to Aspirin or painkillers with aspirin such as Advil, Diclofenac and others.
Do not use blood thinning medication before surgery.
Don’t forget to arrange transportation home. Driving yourself after the surgery is not recommended.
Take a shower, after some surgeries, you may not shower for 24 hours.
Do not use make-up or facial cream.
Do not wear jewellery or watches.
The doctor will tell you if you need to cool because of swelling. Follow this advice carefully.
Rest preferably lying on your back so the swelling goes down faster.
Keep the blood circulation active by taking walking about every hour. This promotes the healing of the wound.
A shower may only be done in consultation with the surgeon.
Working is allowed on average after a few days to a week. Ask the surgeon for advice.
Exercising is allowed six weeks after surgery.
Avoid direct sunshine on your wounds for the first months. So no sun or sunbed. Don’t forget to cover them adequately when you’re planning on enjoying the sun with the rest of your body.

A very good clinic and professional. The feel and look of the clinic are very special, and the same way they treat the patients. They were there for me whenever I needed them, and I felt like they were just one step away from me. I appreciated this for such a big time.
I felt safe at Essential Aesthetics, which is exactly what I was looking for. In short: I recommend this clinic 100%. If you are still in doubt, this is your sign to book a consultation. ♥️
I had a filler procedure, and the procedure, aftercare, and overall experience are second to none. Brindusa and Alexandra were my first points of contact. They were extremely knowledgeable and kind.
The cost of an ear correction procedure can vary depending on several factors.

During the consultation, we will evaluate your case and discuss the details of the procedure. This personalized assessment will enable us to provide a customized ear correction quote that reflects your unique requirements.
During an ear correction surgery, the plastic surgeon makes an incision at the back of the ear that is protruding. The ear skeleton consists of cartilage. The plastic surgeon shapes this cartilage and fixes it with sutures on the inside of the ear. The ear is brought closer to the head and any excess skin is removed. There is a small scar at the incision on the back of the ear which is almost invisible.
Plastic surgery can also help if one or both ears are particularly large.
Should the earlobe be too large, a piece can be removed with a small incision. Correcting protruding earlobes, torn earlobes, or other abnormalities is also possible. The surgeon always makes the incisions in the most inconspicuous places.
The procedure on the earlobe can be performed under local anesthesia. Anesthetic fluid is then injected into the earlobe(s) to be treated.
After the ear surgery, the doctor or nurse will place a strong, tight bandage around the ears and head.
The bandage will remain in place for a week until the sutures are removed. This means it is impossible to wash your hair until the stitches have been removed.
After that week, however, the ears still need to be protected by wearing a hair bandeau or bandage. This is necessary at night as the ears can then be pressed against the pillow. You can wash your hair once the stitches are out. You must keep the skin behind the ears clean and dry.
The ears can be red, swollen, and painful for weeks. This lessens gradually. You can take paracetamol for the pain. An earlobe correction is a fairly minor surgery and you can go home immediately after the surgery. Adhesive plaster protects the wounds after an earlobe correction; you do not have to wear an extra bandage. A doctor will remove these plasters after about a week.
It is possible to have prettier ears; our doctors will be delighted to help you. Talking to a doctor about the possibilities is essential, and a lot is possible. Unfortunately, it is almost impossible to make ears perfectly symmetrical. Their position, however, can be considerably improved.
Sometimes the cartilage recoils, making a second surgery necessary.
The result after an earlobe correction is different per skin type, but with time, the scars are generally barely visible. After a recovery period of a few months, the earlobes are strong enough for new holes for earrings, for example.
When considering an ear correction procedure, also known as otoplasty, it’s essential to prioritize safety and minimize potential risks. Adhering to specific safety measures can help ensure optimal outcomes and a smooth recovery. This section will explore essential safety measures to consider when undergoing ear correction surgery, empowering individuals to make informed decisions about their well-being.
Prioritizing safety measures is vital when undergoing ear correction procedures. Individuals can enhance the safety and effectiveness of their ear correction surgery by selecting a qualified surgeon, customizing the treatment plan, ensuring a sterile surgical environment, and following proper post-operative care. Remember to consult with a reputable surgeon, ask questions, and understand the specific safety protocols for your procedure. With a focus on safety, individuals can confidently embark on their journey toward achieving their desired ear aesthetics and overall well-being.
An ear correction has the same risks as many other surgeries. Cartilage sometimes bends back to its original shape. Therefore there is no full guarantee that the ears will remain straight or symmetrical.
The following complications, though rare, may occur:
