What is Otoplasty (Ear Aesthetic Surgery)?

Otoplasty, also known as aesthetic ear surgery, is the process of changing the shape, position or size of the ears.

Ear aesthetic surgery is performed to correct congenital or subsequent deformities in the ear. The deformity of the ear causes psychological problems in the person. Surgical procedures are needed for congenital or acquired ear problems. The most common ear deformity in society is prominent ear deformation.

To Whom Should Otoplasty (Ear Aesthetic Surgery) Be Applied?

Otoplasty can be done to anyone who is not satisfied with the shape of the ear. People who encounter the following problems in their ears mostly apply to otoplasty:

  • Those who have a larger or smaller ear structure than normal,
  • Those who complain about the structure of the ear due to a structural problem caused by injury, trauma or birth,
  • People with prominent ear anatomy apply to ear aesthetics.


Otoplasty Surgery Types

Prominent ear surgery is the most common congenital ear deformity with a 5% incidence among congenital ear deformities. While the height of a normal ear is 60-65 mm and its width is 20-35 mm, the ear height and width of a person with prominent ear problem are above these ratios.

Ear Lobe Aesthetics

Ear anomaly is used in the treatment of congenital ear deformities. There are several cases in which ear anomaly is seen such as:

It is the most common disorder among ear anomalies. Microtia means “small ear”. Most children with microtia have a normally formed inner ear, but in some cases all or part of the structures that make up the outer ear, including the opening, are absent. This condition can occur on one or both sides of the head. Without external structures to transmit sound to the inner ear, children often have difficulty hearing and detecting the direction of the sound. This is called auditory atresia. Some children with hearing atresia need hearing aids. Children with hearing atresia typically lack the formation of the small middle ear bones and may not have an eardrum.

Curved/cup ears
Curved/cup ears mean that the edge of the ear is tightened or narrowed. While the condition is mild in some patients, the condition can be severe with others. In the most severe cases, there are inner ear deformities that can affect hearing.

Prominent ear
Prominent ears do not normally affect hearing or balance.

Question Mark Ear

All About Otoplasty

Otoplasty (Ear Aesthetics)

Otoplasty is also sometimes called cosmetic ear surgery. The auricle consists of cartilage folds covered with skin. It begins to develop before birth and continues to develop in the years afterwards.

If your pinna is not developing properly, you may choose to have otoplasty to correct the size, position or shape of your ears.

There are several different types of otoplasty:

  • Ear enlargement: Some people may have small ears or not fully developed ears. In these cases, they may want to have otoplasty to enlarge their outer ears.
  • Ear attachment: This type of otoplasty involves moving the ears closer to the head. The application is performed on people whose ears protrude from the sides of their heads.
  • Ear reduction: Macrotia is when your ears are larger than normal. People with microtia resort to otoplasty to reduce the size of their ears.

How is Otoplasty Surgery Performed?

In ear aesthetics, the places where the ear should be intervened are decided first. Then, the necessary places for stitching that will not disturb the ear fold are targeted. Cartilage areas are rasped. The tissues are removed from the necessary places and the ear is brought to the desired form. Stitches are made from the necessary places behind the ear. If your surgery will be done with local anesthesia, you should stop eating and drinking including water 8 hours before the scheduled time for the operation. If it will be with general anesthesia you should stop eating at 11pm the day before your operation date. After the operation, which will take approximately 1 hour, a bandage is worn to preserve the given shape and reduce swelling and edema. You may not feel pain thanks to the medications given when you go to your room. In surgeries performed with local anesthesia, you can start eating when you go back to your hotel room as it isn’t necessary to stay in the clinic. On the other hand when general anesthesia is performed, you will stay for one night in the clinic, therefore you will wait for 4 hours after the surgery so that you can eat.

Note: While ear aesthetics is performed under general anesthesia at young ages, it can be performed under local anesthesia in adults. If the patient has concerns, general anesthesia is also preferred in adults.

  • It should not be forgotten that you should share this information with your doctor if there is any disease or medication that your doctor should know.
  • Before ear surgery, if there is blood thinning medication, it should be discontinued 10 days before, and foods and plants that will dilute the blood should be avoided.

What Should Be Considered After Otoplasty?

  • After ear aesthetics, a bandage is attached to you. This bandage should be worn for 3 days without removing it.
