Ear Aesthetics

Ears Aesthetics

The most common problem with ears is when they are curved towards the outside more than usual this condition is called scoop ears.

This problem, which causes psychological negative effects and loss of confidence, especially in children and women, is permanently eliminated with ear aesthetics.

Scoop ear surgery is simply the surgery performed to give the correct shape to the cartilage structure that forms the auricle and to ensure that it remains that way.

Since ear development usually completes at the age of 5-6 years, there is no need to wait until the age of 18, as in other aesthetic operations for ear aesthetics. The lower limit can be applied to 6 years of age. The success rate of the surgery is up to 90%.

How to Perform Otoplasty (Ears operation)?

Although there are different techniques such as hanging with a rope in autoplasty and entering it with a incision too small to be noticed behind the ear, the doctor who will perform the operation decides the technique that is most suitable for the patient.

Otoplasty is performed with general anesthesia in children under 10-12 years of age and local anesthesia in older people.

In the technique made, cartilage tissue is shaped by entering with a small incision made behind the ear. Permanent and durable seams are put in place to ensure that the given shape is not disturbed. The operation is completed in an average of 1 hour for both ears. Bandages are attached to the ears. Patients who have applied local anesthesia are discharged from the hospital after 1 hour and those who are under general anesthesia are discharged from the hospital on the same day after 4 hours. After the operation, only incision marks remain.

In rope scoop ear aesthetics, no incision is made. It is especially preferred by those who do not want general anesthesia and incision. However, depending on the patient’s condition, the doctor may decide on general anesthesia. Medical ropes are placed and pulled with the help of a needle from the upper cartilage tissue of the ear and given the desired shape. The holes opened by the needle are closed with small bands. Hair bands are attached to the patient’s head. The operation is completed in an average of 15 minutes.
