With this surgery, large, forward-angulated ears are corrected more proportionally. It is recommended that the operation be performed at the age of 4-5 years. Thus, the growth of cartilages with new forms will increase the success of the surgery. The scars are behind the ear and a more natural appearance is obtained after the cartilages are formed. The results are permanent and the scars completely disappear.
Prominent ears are often perceived as “larger than they should be”. It’s not quite right though. There is no difference in ear size between a person with prominent ears and a person with normal ears. The problem is only with the shape of the ear cartilages.

How is Prominent Ear Aesthetic Surgery Performed?
The operation is performed under local anesthesia for adults, general anesthesia for children and patients where local anesthesia cannot be performed.
After the operation, depending on the individual situation, wound infection in the ear, blood accumulation in the tissue and coagulation may occur; however, there is no risk that poses serious problems after the operation. Often a similar ear type is seen.
During prominent ear aesthetics, an incision is made behind the ear.
The cartilage is thinned with a file and then the cut is sutured.
Since the seam in the ear will remain on the back, it is not likely to be seen from the opposite side. It does not cause any visual disturbance to the patient in terms of aesthetics. Only you can know that you have had ear aesthetic surgery before.
