Ear Aesthetics

Prominent ear deformity is the congenital unilateral or bilateral separation of the ear from the skull with a wide angle and the absence of folds. Congenital ear anomalies are common. Prominent ear is the most common of these. Other common anomalies are the presence of an extra protrusion in front of the ear, the shrinkage and compression of the auricle, that is, the “constricted ear” deformity, or the absence of the ear at all. Hearing problems can sometimes be seen in ears that have never formed. All of these problems are congenital disorders.

Are There Any Non-Surgical Tests of Prominent Ears?

In cases where prominent ears are seen, this possibility is possible if they are noticed quickly after birth. Under the control of a specialist physician, babies can be treated with ear bandages applied daily by their families for 2-3 months. Ears that recover after treatment do not have deformity as before.

What is the Earliest Age for Ear Aesthetics?

Ear Aesthetic Surgery is a type of plastic surgery that can be performed at the youngest age. Ear aesthetic surgery can be performed even in primary school children. Before this operation, it is necessary to talk very well with children and give information.

Classic Prominent Ear Aesthetics

The procedure should be performed in the operating room under sterile conditions. While general anesthesia is preferred in children aged 5-10 years, the operation can be performed easily with sedation and local anesthesia in adults and children older than 10 years. An attempt is often made with an incision made behind the ear. Some surgeons remove an elliptical tissue section from here, but this skin does not need to be removed in every case. With this incision made behind the ear, all cartilage structures, posterior auricular muscle and posterior auricular vein are made visible.

In patients with prominent ear deformity due to auricular concha hypertrophy, the excision size of this cartilage is determined and the hypertrophic part of the conchal cartilage is removed. The anthelix then often needs to be reshaped as needed. This shaping is easier because the younger the age of the patient, the less the stiffness of the cartilages. While it is necessary to make incisions in the cartilage and then suture with sutures for this shaping in elderly patients, rasping the cartilages may be sufficient in younger patients. In children between the ages of 5-10, this shaping can be done with a few easy stitches. What is valuable is reshaping the anthelix in such a way that there is no tension left. The sutures placed on the cartilages should be chosen as they are thin and will not react later on cartilage or other soft tissues.

In this step, the general shape of the auricle was corrected and sufficient correction was achieved in many patients. However, deformities in tragus and antitragus that may be present in some patients and the size of the ear lobule can be corrected after this step. After bleeding control in all tissues, the incision is sutured aesthetically with internal sutures and the ear is closed with a special bandage.

Prominent Ear Aesthetics with Thread

Prominent Ear surgery with a thread is an extremely easy application, with a time-limit of 15 minutes, without a random scalpel slit. It is a method performed by some doctors in Turkey, which is not common in the world.

Prominent Ear surgery with thread has many advantages over the usual classical procedure. The most valuable of these is that there is no incision in the patient’s ear. The absence of incision in the operation means that there will be no scars. This is a valuable factor. Prominent Ear surgery with thread is performed to eliminate visual disturbances as a form. The fact that a person has prominent ears does not affect his health at all. However, for our patients who care about their appearance, prominent ear surgery with thread is an extremely valuable technique.
