Ear Aesthetics

What is prominent ear?

The ear is a complex shaped organ composed of soft-consistent cartilage and specialized for the perception of sound. It is located on both sides of the head, in the middle of the eye and upper lip level. The auricle makes an average of 30-35 degrees angle with the head bone behind. The condition where the auricle is curved forward by angling more than 35 degrees with the head is called the ‘Note Ear Deformity’.

How is prominent ear treated?

In general, two techniques can be mentioned. Both techniques are performed under local anesthesia.
First procedure; It is the fixation of the ear back by placing permanent sutures in the middle of the ear cartilage and bone with a small incision made behind the ear.

The second way is to reveal the cartilage structure that forms the auricle with incisions made behind the ear and to shape the ear with incisions and stitches made on the cartilage. The process takes a total of 1 hour for both ears. After the process, the ears are followed with closed dressing for 1 week. In the next period, the patient should cover his ears by using a tennis bandage for 4 weeks.

What are the Other State Disorders of the Ear?

Many ear-related problems are developmental. There may be issues such as the ear being larger than usual, underdeveloped, auricle or no ear at all. An unusually large auricle is treated by removing a cut from the ear. If there is no ear; New ears can be made by shaping the cartilage taken from the body or ready-made ear epitheses are used.
