Mr Greg O'Toole MD FRCS(Plast)


The earstitch procedure, popularised by Greg O'Toole, is the simplest, most minimalist approach available to correct ear prominence.

The procedure takes minutes, it is performed under local anaesthetic, no bandages are required, and a return to normal activity within days is the norm.

In terms of operation numbers, Mr O'Toole is the world lead in cosmetic ear surgery including earstitch otoplasty techniques performing over 100 procedures anually.


The earfold is a revolutionary device which corrects softness of the anti-helical fold of the ear. It improves ear aesthetics and projection in suitable cases. 

Mr O'Toole has implanted more than 300 earfolds since 2014.
