Prominent ears, which have become a nightmare for school-age children, must be treated at the right time and using the right techniques. Prominent ear surgery, which is a simple aesthetic surgery operation that does not carry serious risks, is an operation that should be performed under hospital conditions by a plastic surgeon who is an expert in his field. It is performed by applying local or general anesthesia in line with the surgeon's recommendation, taking into account the age of the patient. Although it varies according to the level of the problem in the ear, the operation, which is usually completed in a period of 45-90 minutes, does not require hospitalization. Depending on the ear structure, the technique and preference of the surgeon, the operation can be performed in front of or behind the ear. By applying an aesthetic operation to the root cause of the problem, the ear cartilages are usually shaped as they should be and the ear is repositioned backwards. At the end of the surgery, special bands are attached to the ear for 1-2 weeks and then removed. The incisions applied during the surgery generally remain behind the ear and no traces that may cause aesthetic problems are formed. The surgery does not affect hearing during or after recovery, and the person can easily continue his normal life. The recovery period in prominent ear surgery, which is performed quite simply and quickly, takes a maximum of 1-2 weeks. At the end of this process, the prominent ear appearance completely disappears and the person has ears that look natural and as they should be.
