Unlock the Beauty of Your Ears: Otoplasty Redefines Self-Expression!

What is Otoplasty?

Otoplasty is another name for prominent ear correction surgery. It is also called as ear aesthetics. Otoplasty is applied for protruding or large ears where the angle between the scalp and the auricle increases due to problems in the ear structure.

Ear structure is examined before otoplasty. Ear folds may be underdeveloped, the cartilage structure is weak outward, strong in the posterior lower part, and may push the girdle outward, the ear may be normally large and protruding. The angle between the auricle and the scalp can be considered normal up to 22-24 degrees, the angles above this are considered as protruding ears and should be corrected if it disturbs the person in his/her daily life and social life.

Before Otoplasty Operation

Before otoplasty, the patient's medical history is carefully taken. If there are regular medications, chronic diseases, or previous surgeries, the patient should inform the doctor. After the physical examination, photographs of the ears are taken and the patient's expectations are taken. If it is decided that s/he is a suitable candidate for otoplasty, the patient is asked to stop using aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs, and herbal supplements that may increase bleeding before the operation. Smoking can slow blood flow and the healing process. If the patient smokes, it is recommended to stop smoking before the surgery and during the recovery period.

After Otoplasty Operation

After prominent ear surgery, the patient's ears are covered with a bandage for protection and support. As a result, some discomfort and itching may be felt. Localized pain and swelling may occur in and around the ears on the first day after surgery. In this case, pain relievers can be used as recommended by the doctor. Although it is recommended to rest for the first week, care should be taken not to stay still to maintain blood draw. When lying down, a position with the head up should be preferred. No pressure should be applied to the ears, patients should not be lying on their sides, if possible, loose-collared or buttoned tops should be preferred. It is normal for the ears to be swollen and red when the bandages are removed a few days after otoplasty. It is recommended to wear a loose headband that covers the ears at night for 2-6 weeks. This prevents the ears from bending forward when turning in bed. If a self-dissolving suture is used, there is no need for suture removal. Otherwise, the stitches should be removed within the time specified by the doctor. There is no problem in taking a bath after the bandages are removed after the surgery, but the back of the ear should not be left wet after the bath. The creams recommended by your doctor should be used as recommended for the scar areas. Thus, the formation of traces will be prevented. Although the bandages are removed at the end of the first 3 days, it is important to wear the bandage at night for the first week to protect the ears, especially at night, and not to open them by putting on the pillow during sleep. The first dressing made during the surgery is checked at the time prescribed by your doctor. After the dressing area is checked, the bandage is used in line with your doctor's recommendations. Heavy sports activities should be avoided for 2 months after the surgery. During this period, walking and light-paced sportive activities can be done unless there is an activity that will force the ear. The use of cigarettes and other tobacco products may cause tissue circulatory disorders and increase the possibility of adverse conditions such as infection, wound separation, and thick scars due to their effects that impair wound healing. It is essential to shield the ear from hits.
