How is Prominent Ear Surgery Performed?

Otoplasty is a surgical procedure performed to give the ears a closer and more natural position to the head. This surgery is usually performed under local anaesthesia and different techniques can be used depending on the structure of the ears and the size of the correction needed. During the operation, a small incision is made behind the ear in an invisible place. Through this incision, the ear cartilage is accessed and the cartilage is reshaped. If necessary, excess cartilage tissue is removed to give the ear a smoother contour.

The new shape of the ear is stabilised with stitches, so that the ears are positioned closer to the head. After the surgery, a bandage is applied over the ears and this bandage helps to maintain the new position of the ear during the healing process. The operation takes 1-2 hours on average and the patient can return home the same day. During the postoperative recovery process, it is important that patients avoid heavy physical activity for a while and follow the doctor's recommendations.

What should be considered during the recovery process of prominent ear surgery?
