Hello, dear readers. Protruding ears affect many people. Having protruding ears can cause a range of social problems from being called names to losing reputation. I want to start by saying that it is possible to fix this problem with a procedure that takes merely 30 minutes under state-of-the-art operating conditions.
How is a cosmetic ear surgery performed?
The duration of a standard protruding ear surgery is approximately 30 minutes, by the end of which the surgery will be finished without the patient feeling any pain. The operated region will be dressed with a small bandage, and the treatment will be completely over in only 2 weeks. Cosmetic Ear Surgery with the Flap Technique
The Flap Technique for Prominent Ears
I want to indicate that I do not prefer this method unless it is specifically requested. In my opinion, this procedure unnecessarily prolongs the operation. This technique is based on placing a prepared tissue over the suture. Of course, we must say ‘different strokes for different folks’. We prefer to apply the “anchor” technique. But we respect the wishes of patients that prefer the flap method.
I have colleagues who also prefer this method. Skills and practice that are developed by experience also play a role in the decision of surgical method. Naturally, surgeons prefer methods that they are familiar and comfortable with. We respect every person’s decisions and efforts.
The Suturing Technique for Prominent Ears
The suturing technique is an old method for correcting prominent ears. This operation does not result in any scars or incision marks. An aesthetic surgical suture is used to extend the ear. This non-invasive and painless procedure is done in 30 minutes.
There is one thing that you should know about this technique, which is that it is not suitable for every patient. The feasibility of this technique depends on the structure of the ear. If the structure of the ear is not suitable for the suturing method, physicians will apply other techniques such as the anchor technique or the classical method.
Is cosmetic ear surgery going to be costly? (Prices)
When we evaluate cosmetic ear surgery costs, we observe that even some cell phones are more expensive. We try and keep our prices low so that more people can benefit from our services under current economic conditions. There are several factors that affect the price of the operation, including the number of ears that need to be operated, and the structure of the ear.
Will my ears start to protrude again?
A person’s ears will never go back to how they were before the surgery. In very, very rare cases, the ears can start to slightly protrude. In such a case, a revision surgery can easily fix eliminate this problem. We want to note that these cases usually result from inadequate postoperative care by the patient.
In short, your ear will not start to protrude again after the operation, and even if it does, a second surgery will easily fix it.
