Ear Aesthetics (Otoplasty)

Ear surgery can be performed in both adults and children. However, surgery is recommended if the children are over 5-6 years of age. During the treatment period, local anesthesia and sedation or general anesthesia will be applied depending on the age range of the patient. The surgery should be performed behind the ear, on the area between ear and head. The duration of the operation varies from 1 to 2 hours although it changes from case to case.

How Is Ear Aesthetics Treatment Applied?

The operation is performed under local and/or general anesthesia and usually lasts from 1 to 2 hours. A local anesthetic will be injected into the area to reduce discomfort after surgery. Incisions are usually hidden behind the ear or inside the ear along the inner layers. Depending on the purpose of the surgery, cartilage or cartilage which causes the ear to protrude may be removed. Protruding ears can be adjusted again using sutures to keep the ear in a better position over the head. If the ear curves are missing, the cartilage can be shaped and sutured to regenerate the normal curves of the ear. A combination of techniques can be used depending on the desired goals of each patient. At the end of the ear surgery, dressings are placed and these dressings should remain until about 1 week after the surgery. Patients will usually be ready to go home 2 hours after surgery.
