If the angle of the ear is wider than normal, this is called a prominent ear. Underdeveloped cartilage folds in the ear structure and earlobe size are also common causes of complaints. The prominent ear operation is based on bringing the ear closer to the skull with a small incision behind the ear.
The operation takes about two hours under general anesthesia, and you can be discharged six hours or one day after the end of the operation.
In the early postoperative period, minimal edema may occur behind the ear. Since the incision is very small and behind the ear, scars are not visible. A bandage will be worn for three days after the operation and then a tennis band should be worn for fifteen days. You can return to your daily life immediately.
