About Sussex Ear Shaping

Find out more about Sussex Ear Shaping and lead surgeon Mr Mike O'Connor

An experienced cosmetic surgeon

Mr Mike O'Connell, is a fully accredited Nose and Ear surgeon with a particular interest in nasal reconstruction and cosmetic nose (rhinoplasty) and ear (pinnaplasty) surgery.

He has more than 20 years experience in rhinoplasty and pinnaplasty and prides himself on his results. Modern techniques have improved dramatically in recent years and the sculpted “one size fits all” noses of the 60’s and 70’s have been replaced by a much more personalised approach. The aim of contemporary surgeons is to improve the nose or ears, so that they harmonise with the person’s features and compliments their facial highlights. The aim of surgery is to leave a proportioned, appealing and balanced look. The operation requires not only technical skill but also aesthetic understanding of the individual patient’s facial features.
