What is Ear Aesthetics?
There are deformities in the ear that require ear aesthetic surgery. In prominent ears, the problem is that the angle of your ear with your head is higher than normal. In other words, they appear more forward and clearly than normal. In this case, it can lead to significant psychosocial, behavioral and emotional problems, especially in children.
In prominent ear aesthetics, only the outer part of the ear is intervened. Prominent ear surgery is a very safe operation. For this reason, it will not cause any problems with hearing. Since ear development is completed until 5-6 years of age, it is recommended to correct the ear by performing prominent ear surgery at these ages. Prominent ear surgery (otoplasty) is performed under general anesthesia in children. In older ages, it can also be done with local anesthesia, that is, by anesthetizing the ear, without general anesthesia. Since prominent ear surgery is performed on the back of the ear, there will be no scars.

For Which Age Is Prominent Ear Surgery More Appropriate?
Prominent ear surgery is a procedure suitable for all ages. However, the appropriate age for this surgery is preschool age. Children who go to school with prominent ears will encounter the negative thoughts of their friends and this will affect the mental state of the child. For this reason, before the prominent ear surgery, this situation should be explained to the child in a way that he or she can understand and the surgery should be performed on his own will. If the child wants it himself, this surgery will be performed.
What Should I Pay Attention To Before Prominent Ear Surgery?
As in all surgeries, it is necessary to stop using aspirin 2-3 weeks before the surgery and to stop smoking in prominent ear surgery. In the last week before the operation, it is necessary not to use drugs that dilute the blood and similar substances.
Will there be a scar in my ear after prominent ear surgery?
It is very normal to see a thin white line behind the ear after surgery. Since this thin scar will remain in the section behind the ear, it will not be visible from the outside. Since self-dissolving stitches are used in the surgery, there will be no need for stitches to be removed after the surgery and there will be no scars.
