Cosmetic Ear Surgery (Otoplasty)

Prominent ear aesthetics, namely otoplasty, is a method of giving an aesthetic and natural appearance to the ears with deformities. It is used in the treatment of deformities known as prominent ears among the people. Thanks to the operation applied to the ear cartilage, people who are uncomfortable with the appearance of their ears gain self-confidence and continue their social lives.


The problem called prominent ear is a genetic condition that occurs as a result of insufficient development of the ear cartilage tissue. The cartilage structure in the outer ear part bends sideways, showing a distant angle to the lateral surface of the head. This situation, which has nothing to do with hearing, causes aesthetic concerns in the person since childhood.

It is possible to say goodbye to the appearance of prominent ears, which can be psychologically abrasive, and to have natural and smaller ears. Otoplasty ear aesthetics is one of the most preferred aesthetic operations by those who have this problem. Especially in childhood, the feeling of discomfort that starts during the school period is shaped by the reactions received from the environment. It is not possible for this problem to disappear on its own after infancy. For this reason, children with prominent ears may need to see a specialist during their pre-school period.


Prominent ear surgery, also called otoplasty, is a surgical procedure performed to treat the unwanted appearance of the ear shape. The ear structure is brought to a standard appearance with a very simple operation by the expert staff of Promed Clinic. Since an aesthetic procedure is applied only to the outer part of the ear with otoplasty, no intervention is made regarding the hearing sense, and the inner ear is not affected by the operation in any way.


In the process that starts with the application of people who are uncomfortable with the appearance of their ears to a specialist, the operation is performed after the conformity determination. Otoplasty operation takes about 1-2 hours, general or local anesthesia is applied. The procedure is performed by opening an incision behind the ear. Ear cartilage tissue is brought to the desired form and fixed with permanent suture application. A comfortable operation process is passed without pain and pain sensation.


It is very important to communicate with the specialist physician and the person who will have the operation before the operation to be performed in order for the ears to regain their new shape. The specialist physician shares details with the person before and after otoplasty. Informing the person correctly by the specialist physician is one of the pre-operative conditions.

If the person to be operated is underage, all information is given to the parents. The procedure, which is deemed appropriate as a result of the detailed examination, is started and the operation is performed within the time period determined by the physician.


Ear aesthetics can be applied when the ear structure, which has been developing since infancy, reaches an undesirable appearance. Generally, the operation is decided in the preschool period, around the age of 5-6. It is necessary to perform the operation before children start school, so that their social lives are not affected and therefore they do not experience loss of self-confidence.


A bandage is applied to the person after otoplasty. There is no harm in going home on the same day, it is expected to come to the clinic within 2-5 days to remove the bandage. In the ongoing process after the surgery, dressing should be applied every other day for 10 days, and at the end of this process, the stitches are removed and the person can return to his daily life. The sensitivity felt in the ear cartilage lasts for 7 days, the person should avoid any movements that harm the ear.

Although the recovery period after surgery differs from person to person, it takes a few weeks and ear bands should be worn at night during this process.
