Prominent Ear Aesthetics

Prominent ears are the most common congenital ear deformity with a prevalence of about 5%. A prominent ear is genetically inherited. If the ears are higher and/or wider than normal, they may not have aesthetic look.

During prominent ear aesthetics, the angle between the ear and the head can be reduced to have a more harmonized face.
Assoc.Prof.Dr. Suleyman TAS uses his own developed “Flap Technique” to get a natural and beautiful look for ears. This technique is awarded by the Turkish Plastic, Reconstructive, and Aesthetic Surgery Association and published in the most known scientific magazines, Aesthetic Surgery Journal, Archives of Plastic Surgery, and Annals of Plastic Surgery.

Frequently Asked Questions about Prominent Ear Surgery

How To Get Ready For The Prominent Ear Surgery?

Before the prominent ear surgery, a number of examinations are performed for the patient under the control of the doctor. These include tests such as blood analysis, anesthesia control, physical examination, measurement and imaging. However, alcohol consumption should be stopped 2 weeks before prominent ear surgery, additionally smoking should be quitted at least 6 months before the surgery and never smoked after the surgery. Since smoking cigarettes negatively affects the healing process, and alcohol increases the risk of surgical bleeding.

How Is Prominent Ear Surgery Performed?

Prominent ear surgeries can be performed under general anesthesia or local anesthesia. Assoc.Prof.Dr.Suleyman TAS utilizes the technique developed by himself called as “A New Way For Antihelixplasty In Prominent Ear Surgery: Modified Postauricular Fascial Flap” which was awarded on the competition organized by the Turkish Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery Association. Local anesthesia is used with this method, and general anesthesia for the children below 12 years old. After making a small incision behind the ear, the ear is leaned back with a modifed tissue called as a Flap. This way, potential problems such as stitch loosening or dehiscence that may occur later are prevented.

What Are The Advantages Of The Flap Technique?

There are many advantages of the Flap technique developed by Assoc.Prof.Dr.Suleyman TAS with the purpose of prominent ear correction. Since the absorbable sutures are used, the stitches behind the patient’s ear cannot be detached or loosened even 1-2 years after the surgery. Since the ear is leaned back as much as it is necessary, the gap behind the ear doesn’t disappear completely. Swelling and bruises do not occur after surgery due to the fact that no intervention is required in the frontal part of the ear, and due to the splinting which is performed in the inner part of the ear. Due to the application of this technique with local anesthesia and being performed behind the ear, there is no scar in the ear after the operation. Since this technique does not cause any trauma in the ear, those who are operated can continue their daily lives the next day. Moreover, those who were subjected to a prominent ear operation with this technique were called for control in the 1st month, 6th month, 12th month and 2 years. As a result of the controls, no negative change occurred in the ear of any patient.

How Is The Process After Prominent Ear Surgery?

The patient is discharged on the day of the surgery. During the period recommended by the doctor, water should not contact the operated ear / ears and the painkiller recommended by the doctor should be used. Bandages should be worn first 3 days without taking them off, and 2 weeks only at nights. Afterwards, it is not necessary to wear any band like tennis player band. However, situations such as lying on the operated ear that may cause trauma in the ear should be avoided. If the doctor’s recommendations are followed, the patient can return to his normal life the day after the operation.

Are There Problems After Prominent Ear Surgery?

In all techniques that can be used for prominent ear surgery, certain problems may occur depending on the structure of the methods. These postoperative problems are basically divided into two as early period and late period. Problems that may arise in the early period include bleeding, blood collection, skin death, wound opening, infection. Problems that may arise in the late period include pain and tenderness when the ear is touched, distortion in the shape of the ear, scars left after the surgery, and stitches coming out after the prominent ear surgery.

The above potential problems, which may vary depending on the surgical technique used, are not seen in all patients. However, thanks to the awarded Flap Technique developed by Assoc. Prof. Dr. Suleyman TAS, a solution to the problems that can be seen in other methods was found. With this technique, which is increasingly used all over the world, the problems we have mentioned above do not occur in any period of the operations we have performed until today.

What Should Be Considered Before Ear Surgery?

First important factor is choosing an experienced doctor for your ear surgery. You need to be in a proper communication with your doctor, you must express your complaints and expectations correctly. If you have disease or a medication you use, you should tell your doctor before surgery. The bleeding disorder is an important factor in ear surgery as in any surgery. If you have such a problem or have it in your family, tell your doctor. You should stop taking blood-thinning medications 10 days before surgery. You should stay away from herbs and nutrients that have blood-thinning effects.

How Does the Healing Process Progress After Ear Surgery?

The recovery after ear surgery varies according to the type of the surgery. You should wear a bandage for 3 days after the most common ear surgery which is prominent ear surgery. After that you may return to your social life. After ear surgery, you should protect the ears from bending forward, pulling and blows. You can lie on your side shortly after the surgery, but you should be careful not to bend your ears. You can do sports 4-5 weeks after surgery. Following the advice of your doctor, you can start wearing glasses and earrings. The completion of the healing process after ear surgery takes about 1 year.
