Otoplasty

Otoplasty surgery is performed for the reduction, size, position correction and reshaping of the auricle.

Otoplasty is an operation that is applied to people who are congenitally separated from the skull of the ear unilaterally or bilaterally, with a wide angle or who do not have an ear fold. The aim is to balance the ears with the face, giving them a natural look.

The problem is with the shape of the ear cartilages. This procedure is suitable for people whose ear folds are not sufficiently formed/developed on one or both sides, and those who are unhappy with the appearance of their ears.

Otoplasty is an important surgery not only for adults, but also for children with large or wide ears that can be ridiculed. Anyone who is healthy over the age of 5 can have otoplasty.

Prominent ear surgery is performed under deep sedation or general anesthesia in children, and under local or general anesthesia in adults.

In ear aesthetic surgery, an incision is made behind the ear and excess skin and cartilage are removed. When the ears are brought close enough to the head, they are sewn with a special sewing technique. Thus, it is ensured that the ear takes a new position on the skull. The operation takes 1-2 hours.

After the surgery, the ears are protected with a bandage and the bandages are removed after a few days. After the dressings are removed, a headband maintains the position of the ears during recovery. After the healing is complete, a tiny scar may remain behind the ear.
