What Is The Cause Of Prominent Ear?

Protruding or prominent ears found in most people are caused by an underdeveloped antihelical fold. When the antihelical fold is not formed correctly, it causes the helix (outer edge of the ear) to protrude.

How Is Otoplasty Surgery Performed?

The specific surgical technique to be used depends on the type of prominent ear. In general, otoplasty includes the following steps:

  • An incision is made behind the ear or inside the folds of the ear,
  • Ear tissue is manipulated, which may involve removing cartilage or skin, reshaping the cartilage with permanent sutures, or grafting the cartilage into the ear,
  • The incisions are closed with sutures.

How Is Recovery After Otoplasty ?

Once the procedure is complete, a dressing is placed over the ears. The dressing must be kept clean and dry. In addition to these, those who have undergone the operation should pay attention to the following:

  • Avoid touching or scratching your ears,
  • A sleeping position in which you don’t sleep on your ears is selected,
  • Wear clothes that don’t need to be worn over the head, such as a shirt.

In some cases, stitches may also need to be removed. The doctor will tell the patient whether this is necessary. Some types of sutures also dissolve on their own.

Otoplasty Surgery In Children

It’s common for children to be teased about prominent ears, especially in elementary and middle school. This negatively affects a child’s developing self-image and self-confidence. Ear surgery to remove the prominent ear image stops any bullying before it starts. Since the growth of the human ear ends to a large extent at the age of 4, ear surgery can be performed before the child starts school.

Otoplasty surgery in children is performed for the following purposes:

  • Changing ear shape for a more natural look,
  • Making one or both ears more proportional to the size and shape of the head and face,
  • Reducing the size of the ears and making them more symmetrical,
  • Helping the child gain confidence and self-esteem about his/her appearance.

Prominent Ear

Below you can find what you are wondering about prominent ear. 👇

A permanent change is made in the ears by applying permanent aesthetic stitches to the inner part of the ear and dissolvable ones to the outer part. Therefore, it is highly unlikely for a person’s ears return to their former state.

Prominent ear surgery is one of the most common cosmetic surgery procedures preferred by adults. Adults who have lost their self-confidence due to the appearance of their ears, avoid social environments and want to get rid of the aesthetic concerns can also consider prominent ear surgery.

Recovery from prominent ear surgery is very comfortable. Patients can return to school or work 2 days after the operation. Since dissolvable stitches are placed on the outer part of the ears, patients can comfortably resume their normal activities in a short time with the new shape of their ears, without the need for stitches. Patients are advised to use a hair band during the day for 7-10 days after the operation, and while lying down for a period of 1 month.

The incision is made from the back where the ear meets the scalp, so it is not easily seen. This scar disappears over a period of 6 to 12 months.

The operation is performed under anesthesia, so the patient does not feel any pain 10-12 hours after the operation. However, after this period, it is useful to take painkillers to keep any pain at a minimum.

Prominent ear surgery is known as an aesthetic operation that can be performed from the earliest ages. Once the development of the ears is complete (usually when a child turns 5), it is beneficial to perform this operation before the child goes to school, if possible. Parents should think more sensitively about prominent ear surgery in order to prevent their child from being exposed to sarcastic remarks in social environments.
