Pre – Consultation – 

I have booked my consultation time for today at 10am, I am not sure what to expect, I am a little nervous but excited. Its been so long thinking about it. I will blog again after my consultation….

Post Consultation – 

Just seen Mr Ball and he said I’m suitable. Oh My God…..2 weeks and my sticky out ears will be gone forever!! YAY

I have booked my consultation, it feels like Christmas, I am so excited to see my new ears.

This is what my ears currently look like….

Tuesday 26th May – EarFold Procedure Day 

So the day of my procedure is finally here, and I feel anxious and excited. I have been told what to expect, which is that I go in to Changes, meet with Mr Ball and I have the clips positioned onto my ear. Then…. time to get new ears!!

Pre Procedure –

These are where the clips will be going. I am only having 1 each side, I believe you can have more than just the 1 in each ear, depending on how you want the result to be. We tried 2 in my right ear, but looked better with just the 1 clip. I am happy with that.

Pre procedure

I am now ready to start the procedure, so in less than an hour I will have new ears… yay!!

Post Procedure –

5.30pm

Immediately after surgery I am feeling well. Looked in the mirror and cried at the result – tears of happiness. Can’t believe that after an hour (in total) of mild discomfort, my ears look completely different and I have forgotten what they looked like before.

8.30pm

Able to go to the supermarket and do some shopping, feeling a bit of pain, mild burning sensation but nothing major. Cooked dinner and watched TV before settling down for the evening.

Tip for future “earFolders” –If you are using a blow-up pillow don’t inflate it completely as this makes sleeping very awkward. Not much room for ears and pillow touches ears which can create some discomfort in the night. Half deflated works much better. [Note from Changes: Or if you can get hold of one, try a memory foam pillow.]

Wednesday 27th May – 1 day post EarFold

Woke up to find a tiny spot of blood on my pillow from my right ear. This ear is much more inflamed and bruised than my left.

Today I am in a bit of pain– didn’t fancy going into work, because I use the phone a lot more than any other reason and ears are feeling tender today.

Not much pain coming from left ear, more so from right. However still only mild discomfort. Over the moon with the result.

Kept dosed up on painkillers during the night. Excuse the selfie ha ha.

Friday 28th May – 3 days post EarFold

Went back to work yesterday and everyone commented on my ears – I am wearing my hair up – YAY!

Left ear – tiny amount of bruising. Right ear, nearly black and quite swollen but strangely no pain, unless I touch them. They are looking good .

Today was my first hair wash. Plasters got slightly wet but they are still firmly on. No pain today. Bruising has gone down on both ears and you would believe me if I told you that I had not even had surgery as it looks completely normal. Right ear is still swollen but can see a change. It is the best it has looked and I have no pain at all.

Able to work for the entire working day with no pain and back on the phones.

Ear day 4

Note – Apart from my first night after the op where I dosed up on painkillers during the night, I have only taken 1 lot of painkillers every day since the op and not felt it necessary to take anymore. This would not have been the case had I undergone a pinnaplasty or other procedure.
