Prominent Ear Surgery (Ear Surgery)

The term "Prominent Ear" is used to describe ears with faint folds and a considerable distance from the base of the skull. Medically, this condition does not pose any problems, but it can lead to psychological trauma, especially 

during childhood. "Prominent Ear Surgery" is an operation performed to reshape the ear.

At what age can prominent ear surgery be performed?

Ear correction surgery can be performed from around the age of six since ear development is largely complete at this age. However, there is no obstacle to performing the surgery at later ages if needed.

In prominent ear surgery, is local anesthesia or general anesthesia applied? Where is the incision made in prominent ear surgery?

The surgery can be performed under general anesthesia or local anesthesia. General anesthesia is not often preferred for surgeries in older ages, and local anesthesia is usually favored.

There are various surgical techniques available for correcting prominent  ears. Details of the surgery are discussed beforehand, and the method that aligns with the individual's expectations is selected. The surgery is typically performed with an incision made behind the ear. The cartilage is reshaped to adjust the angle and distance between the ear and the skull. After closing the incision behind the ear with stitches that do not need removal, a protective and lightly compressed dressing is applied.

How long does the surgery take? How long is hospitalization necessary after the surgery?

The duration of the surgery varies, but on average, it lasts about 1-2 hours. If the procedure is performed under local anesthesia, hospitalization is not necessary. If it is done under general anesthesia, discharge can be planned for the same day.
