Protruding ears are genetic or external ear defects caused by too much distance between the ears and the head and the ears being perpendicular to the head rather than parallel to the head.
It is a surgical procedure. If the distance between the head and the ear seems disproportionate, is too large, or has asymmetry, this can be corrected by sewing at the point between the ear and the head, determined by the width of the angle. In cases where the cartilage is not sufficiently folded, this operation is performed by suturing the skin behind the ear to the inner part. In rare cases where the cartilage is too large, otoplasty can be performed by making an incision by reducing the cartilage tissue. Otoplasty is a simple procedure that is usually performed under local anesthesia. However, in order to facilitate the surgeon's work during the procedure, general anesthesia is preferred in younger people.
The development of the ears is completed at the age of 5-6 on average. Anyone who has visual impairment from the auricle and may cause psychological trauma can have children undergo otoplasty after the age of 6 with the approval of their parents. While 6 years old is determined as the lower limit, it should be noted that there is no upper age limit for the operation and nothing prevents this operation upon the request of the person as long as the health condition allows. Anyone who is disturbed by the appearance of their ears, does not find their ears aesthetic, therefore does not wear braids and is psychologically affected by this situation can have this surgical procedure.
Ear surgery takes an average of 45-90 minutes, depending on the correction to be made to the ear. The doctor can tell you the exact time after the examination.
In the postoperative period, ear aesthetic surgery will be performed by a surgeon whose experience and expertise can be trusted and provided that the doctor's recommendations are followed, will have permanent results.
Ears remain attached for 4 days after otoplasty. During this period, the patient should not lie on his ears. After the bandages are removed on the 4th or 5th day, slight bruising and swelling may occur. This is completely normal and pain relievers prescribed by your doctor will provide relief. Ears should be covered while sleeping for the first two weeks after the procedure. Since it is only a minor operation, the patient can return to his normal life immediately afterward.
After otoplasty, a pale scar may remain behind the ear. This scar is not considered important by the patients, as this area is not visible and the patient gets rid of the disturbing appearance of the ears.
