What to Know About
Prominent ear deformity is a condition in which the ears extend from the head to the outside more perpendicularly than they should. Although prominent ears are seen in different degrees and types in society, approximately 5% of people have prominent ears. Although prominent ears do not cause any health problems, people may have psychological effects. Operations performed to correct prominent ear deformation requiring surgical intervention are called “otoplasty”.
Anyone who is not satisfied with the shape of the ear can have otoplasty surgery. Congenital or acquired deformities in the ear can negatively affect people’s lives. It can lead to a decrease in one’s self-confidence and self-exclusion from social environments. Otoplasty operations eliminate deformities in the ear while providing an aesthetic appearance.
Ear development is completed between 5-6 years of age. The most suitable period for prominent ear operation for children is the preschool period. When prominent ear surgery is performed in the pre-school period, the psychological problems that the child may experience in school life are also prevented. Prominent ear operations are recommended to be performed before school, as early treatment prevents psychological and social traumas.
A prominent ear operation is performed in the operating room under local anesthesia. The operation takes approximately 1 to 1.5 hours. General anesthesia can also be applied to children. Prominent ear surgery is performed through incisions placed in the folds behind the ear. There are no scars after the surgery. In prominent ear surgeries, the most common method is to weaken the excess cartilage in the ear by rasping, remove it if necessary, and give the ear a new curved shape with absorbable or non-absorbable sutures.
