Ear Esthetic (Otoplasty)

Ear Esthetic (Otoplasty)

The most common deformity in the ear is called "scoop ear" or "sail ear" among the people. Due to the weakness of the ear cartilages, the ear folds are not formed sufficiently, and the condition where the auricle is curved forward and laterally than normal is called "scoop ear". The main reason is that the ears are too far from the posterior ear bone at an angle. This is usually a familial deformity. 

This situation, which is one of the biggest complexes of many people today, especially school-age children, differs from culture to culture. Although the prominent ear is a mockery in western societies, for example, in Japan, it is accepted as a sign of cuteness, cuteness and beauty, especially in young girls, and it is not considered a shame, but on the contrary, it is accepted as a reason for preference. Prominent ear surgery is an aesthetic surgery that is also in high demand by men. The reason for this is that while women can easily hide their ears with their hair, men cannot hide it because of their short hair. In such cases, it is possible to create a new auricle by removing cartilage from other parts of the body with a series of operations. These are the cases where the shape of the auricle is different from the normal, which can be corrected by surgery. In addition, a new ear can be made from the patient's own rib cartilage for those who do not have a congenital ear or who lost their ear after an accident.

Healthy individuals looking to improve the appearance of large, prominent or misshapen ears may be good candidates for otoplasty. The procedure can be performed as early as age four, which can help to lessen the psychological and emotional discomfort that children may otherwise endure. Otoplasty is also performed on adults.
Otoplasty can be performed once the ears are fully grown, which typically occurs around the age of four. There are many benefits to performing the surgery at an early age as it can lessen the emotional and psychological discomfort a child may otherwise have to endure.
There are different techniques for otoplasty depending on the particular problem. Incisions are typically located in the back of the ear. The cartilage may be sculpted and the ear bent back toward the head, sometimes with the use of non-removable stitches to hold the new shape. In some cases, it may be necessary to remove a piece of cartilage in order to create a more natural-looking fold.
Though the incisions made for otoplasty do result in scars, they are hidden as they are usually located behind the ears.
Patients can usually return to work or school within five to seven days.
Strenuous activities and contact sports may need to be postponed for about one to two months.
