Prominent Ear Aesthetics
Prominent ear is a congenital and familial condition. It is not due to a specific reason. Although this disorder, which is a condition in which the ear canal is more prominent than normal, is mild in many people, it is sometimes remarkable and disturbs the person from early childhood. It is not a sign of any ailment or disease.
Prominent Ear Aesthetic Surgery
Prominent Ear surgery is performed under general anesthesia. The average operation time varies between 1-2 hours. It is performed in front of or behind the ear, depending on the surgeon’s preference. The ear cartilage is reshaped and the ear is placed backwards. Since the incisions will usually remain in the fold behind the ear, there is no visible scar. It does not affect hearing.
Prominent Ear Aesthetics Healing Process
After the surgery, every other day dressing and controls take 10 days in total. On the tenth day, after removing the stitches, the patient can return to his daily social life, except that he is advised to sleep with an elastic head bandage only at night.
