The congenital prominent ear is formed by the development of the cartilage tissue in a forward-facing manner. Sometimes, unilateral prominent ear cases are also seen. Being ridiculed, especially in childhood and youth, causes serious psychological problems in some people. This aesthetic problem can be easily eliminated with prominent ear aesthetics (otoplasty) operation.


The desired shape of the ear cartilage is given through an incision of approximately 3 cm at the back of the ear and its position is fixed with permanent sutures. The final stage of the surgery is the re-suturing of the incision. Since the self-melting thread is used in the stitches, there is no need to remove the stitches. The operation performed under local anesthesia varies between 30 minutes and 2 hours. After prominent ear surgery, the patient is discharged on the same day.

After ear aesthetics, the patient will use bandages for the first three days. When the bandages are removed, the forehead band used by the athletes should be used to protect the ear from external effects. Between 3 and 5 days, the patient can easily return to his daily life. Showering should be started on the 4th or 5th day. Swelling that may develop after surgery will pass within this period. After about 20 days, the new shape of the ear will be settled. In the first 3 months after the operation, the ear must be protected from impacts.

For Whom Is Scoop Ear Surgery (Otoplasty) Performed?

Otoplasty can be done to anyone who is not satisfied with the shape of the ear. Natural and patient-satisfying results can be obtained with various otoplasty techniques for pathologies such as ear size and prominent protrusion (absence or weakness of the antihelix and hypertrophy of the cavum turbinate) that bother the patients. Especially in preschool children, 5 years of age is the ideal time. The fact that the prominent ear is a joke at school affects child psychology quite negatively.
