I take pictures of prominent ear patients in my office and make the surgery plan on the computer. We decide together how much correction we will make with the patient. I give a written guarantee against opening. You can see pictures of old patients that allow. While performing prominent ear surgery with local anesthesia and sedative drugs, I ensure symmetry with fine millimetric calculations. During the procedure I perform in sterile conditions in the hospital, I show the patients how their ears are with a mirror. The postoperative process is very painful. All the stitches I use dissolve over time and do not cause pain in the ear. Ears stay in bandages for a day or two. Out-of-city patients can also open this dressing themselves. I do not wear a bandana during the day, it is sufficient to wear a bandana while sleeping at night. When you don't wear a bandana during the day, it is easier to return to work and normal life.
Prominent ear disorder is used in cartoons to create a funny, cute, and sometimes not very intelligent expression. In real life, it begins to cause psychological problems in children with the ridicule and humiliation of different appearances. This psychological distress may continue in later ages. Many people with prominent ears cannot tidy up their hair or cut it short. Adolescence may pass in embarrassment, especially because school rules do not allow long hair.
Prominent ear corrections have been done successfully for many years. While most of the aesthetic procedures are performed after the age of 17, prominent ear corrections can be performed from the age of 6. The aim of early treatment is to try to prevent the child's mood from being affected. Having a prominent ear does not reduce hearing, and correcting the prominent ear does not prevent hearing. While sleeping up to the age of 10 (general anesthesia) is preferred, regional anesthesia (local anesthesia) and sedatives can be performed after this age. The prominent ear is not uniform and the method is chosen according to the situation. With the procedures performed behind the ear, the appearance of the bucket is made natural and harmonious.
In my opinion every patient has different type of prominent ear. The ear is divided into three parts. Upper, middle and lower sections can be prominent separately. Correction of the prominent look according to the patient's head angle is important. For example, if the upper part of the ear is made closer to the head in an expanding head, the result is better. The middle part should not be too close to the head. The protrusion of the earlobe, the irregular shape of the ear edge, the upper front part being open, and the fact that the two ears have different scoops can be corrected. I do a lot of prominent ear surgeries. While doing, I understand how much detail I have to pay attention to. In the beginning, it was sufficient to curl the ear back. Now, I give great importance to the fact that these three sections are in full balance and correcting the posture of the ears according to the head structure.
No it is not. Many plastic surgeons like me give sedatives to the patients before they get into the operating room. Patients have no fear of surgery with this method, which they call “a needle of courage”.The ear needle doesn't bother you at all. Once the ears are numb, the surgery is very easy. Calm music is good for both our patient and us. After a well-performed surgery, the pain is minimal and with pain killers it can be immediately get better. Since we use self-melting suture, there is no stitching pain.

I tried to explain all the details in the conversation we had with Burcu Esmerso on Star TV about Prominent Ear Surgery, which is the most frequently asked question to me and I do almost every working day.
