Prominent Ear

Prominent Ear Operation


Prominent ear is a common problem in our country and in the world.

The pronounced ear problem, also called sail ear, is the most common type of deformity in the ear. It is usually caused by the looseness of the cartilages in the ear area or the insufficiency of the ear folds.

Basically, it is not considered a disease because it does not cause any problems in the functioning of the body. On the other hand, it is a frequently preferred aesthetic surgery because it has a negative effect on individuals in terms of aesthetics.

HOW TO TREAT Prominent Ears?

Prominent ear treatment can be performed with surgical or non-surgical methods.

In the non-surgical method, local anesthesia is applied and the auricle is tilted back with non-absorbable sutures. If this method is suitable for the patient, very successful results can be obtained.

After the operation, the patient can continue his daily work. However, this method is not suitable for all prominent ears.

For this reason, patients resort to the surgical route. Prominent ear surgery can be performed under local or general anesthesia. Bandages are used for 3-5 days after surgery.

After 5 days, the bandage is used only at night (for 1 month). If non-absorbable stitches are taken, the stitches are removed on the 7th or 8th day.
