Ear Aesthetics in Turkey, Istanbul

MD Hasan Duygulu

Apart from helping with hearing, ears are also complementary in appearance. A person’s ears, which point outwards and are separate from the head, are immediately noticeable. This ear appearance is called prominent ear. Since prominent ears are immediately noticed in society, they greatly affect people’s self-confidence. It is possible for adults and children to regain their lost self-confidence with ear aesthetic applications. These are applications that improve the appearance when performed by experts.
Ear aesthetics are performed to correct the appearance of the ears and prevent them from appearing separate from the head. With otoplasty, the appearance of the ears as separate from the head is corrected. The desired appearance is achieved with prominent ear aesthetics in women and prominent ear aesthetics in men. Since the ear structure of children is completed by the age of 5, ear aesthetic procedures can be applied at any time from the age of 6 and above. Prominent ear aesthetics can be performed to prevent children from being bullied by their peers and to regain self-confidence. You can choose Hasan Duygulu for painless and trouble-free ear aesthetic procedures.

What is Otoplasty?

Genetic factors or subsequent causes can lead to the appearance of prominent ears after trauma. A prominent ear is when one ear or both ears stand apart from the head, forward or sideways. Sometimes the ear folds are not fully developed or these folds are not evident. Any abnormal appearance is the subject of ear aesthetics. When you research what otoplasty is, you learn that it is a set of procedures that end the prominent ear appearance. The standard of living of the person is increased by correcting the different ear appearance that stands out in different ways. 

While the ear gains an aesthetic appearance, the discomfort of the person’s ear shape is also eliminated. When prominent ear surgery is performed by the right physicians, the process is smooth and easily overcome.

How is Prominent Ear Surgery Performed?

Different methods are tried to eliminate the appearance of prominent ears. The patient’s ear structure and the procedures to be applied to the ear are factors in this. If you are wondering how prominent ear surgery is performed, you should know that it has more than one form. Before the check-up, the doctor determines a road map according to the structure of the ear, cartilage and type of application.
  • If prominent ear surgery is to be performed with a thread, there will be no incision. It is a kind of aesthetic touch rather than a surgical intervention. Prominent ear aesthetics performed without an incision is not a type of surgery. A needle is passed through the cartilage tissue behind the ear and the ear is tilted towards the head. The ear is brought closer to the head with the help of aesthetic threads. The entry points of the ropes are closed with tape and dressed. This procedure, performed under local anesthesia, takes approximately 30 to 45 minutes. There is no need for regular dressing and there will be no incision scars. You can return to your daily routines immediately. You do not need to be hospitalized.

  • Another method is open prominent ear surgery. Depending on the patient, local anesthesia or general anesthesia is applied. Surgical intervention is performed by making an incision behind the ear. The auricle is tilted backwards with the help of aesthetic threads. If there is deformity in the ear cartilage, interventions are made to shape the cartilage. The incision is closed with aesthetic stitches. This process takes approximately 1.5 hours.

What are the Types of Ear Aesthetics?

Since the shape of the ear and the prominent appearance of the ear are different, this leads to diversification of ear aesthetics. If you are wondering what the types of ear aesthetics are, you can get support from a specialist physician.

Postpartum Otoplasty

This method is applied as soon as children are born. Although prominent ear surgery is not a surgery, it is the subject of ear aesthetics. Since the ear takes shape easily due to the estrogen hormone, it is important to intervene during this period. The problem is eliminated with a special ear mold and tight headband for the baby. Thanks to the application performed for approximately 6 to 8 weeks, the baby's prominent ear appearance is prevented. It is a harmless, painless method that does not require medication, etc.

Aesthetic Otoplasty

Although it is not a health problem, it is the way ear aesthetic procedures are performed. Aesthetically, the person's auricle has a better appearance. Symmetry between the head and ear is ensured. Ear folds are shaped. Aesthetic otoplasty is quite common.

Ethnic Otoplasty

A person's nationality and race are effective in their appearance. Operations performed for people of nationality and race who have prominent ear problems are called ethnic otoplasty. When ethnic otoplasty is performed, the patient is shown how he or she will look after the procedure.

Revision Otoplasty

Otoplasty performed by non-specialists sometimes causes the appearance to worsen. In this case, revision otoplasty can be performed. A permanent solution is aimed by shaping the auricle and cartilage.

Traumatic Otoplasty

Even though people have an aesthetic auricle and ear appearance before, various reasons spoil this appearance. Traumatic otoplasty may be performed after trauma, due to injury or impact. It is applied to capture the previous ear appearance or to aesthetically shape the auricle.
