About the Surgery
The most common purpose of aesthetic ear surgery is to correct prominent ears. Abroad, this operation is usually performed before school age. This is not a well-established idea in our country. The reason why the aesthetic ear operation is performed before school age; It is to prevent the child from being teased at school. But this operation can be easily applied to adults as well.
Aesthetic ear operation takes 2-3 hours. It can be done with local anesthesia. It is possible to perform this operation through an incision as short as 3 cm behind the ear. The cartilage is weakened from the desired point and can be shaped with permanent sutures. It may be necessary to remove a piece of ear cartilage with moderate frequency. It is not possible to see the scars in the aesthetic ear operation as they will be completely behind the ear.
Stitches are removed on the 10th day. Since it is performed with local anesthesia, there is no need to stay in the hospital. It is recommended to wear a tennis band or hair band for 1–2 weeks to prevent trauma.
