Prominent Ear Correction

While the ears with a normal size and anatomy do not capture attention, deformed ears immediately become a point of interest at first glance.

While the ears with a normal size and anatomy do not capture attention, deformed ears immediately become a point of interest at first glance.

Although there are numerous disorders about the ear anatomy and development, the most common external ear deformity is the angle disproportion which is called “prominent ear”. Normally, the angle between the ear cartilage axis and the skull is between 20 – 30 degrees. On the other hand, the ear has an internal flexion angle of 90 degrees. If one or both of these angles are wider than normal, the ear seems more pronounced from both back and front. This is the basis of prominent ear deformity.

Correction of prominent ears is done by surgically restoring these angles to ideal. To do this, an incision is made to the posterior aspect of the ear, and permanent sutures are placed between the skull and ear cartilage. These sutures secure the cartilage to its new position, and the tissues stick to each other. This operation is performed under local anesthesia or sedation, and generally does not demand hospital stay. It can be performed after 7 years of age. The operation site is protected with external bands for the following three weeks.

“I have always had insecurities regarding my body as I had a very boyish body. I was very straight with no curves. My friend got her body done by Dr Mertin in Istanbul and when I saw her body I knew it was time to do something about my own. I contacted dr Mertin and him and his team were very helpful and consulted me regarding the procedure I want which was a Bbl. Dr Mertin was very professional and he explained everything in details before the surgery. He understood exactly what I wanted my body to look like. I suffer from sickle cell so he made sure he explained to me what he can and cannot do due to my sickness which was very professional as it was not about the money but he cared about my well being. The aftercare was fantastic he made sure he checked up on me everyday I was in the hospital and after I left the hospital. All the staff was supper friendly. Even when I got back to London they still checked up on me to see how I was doing. I am very happy with my result and I will highly recommend him.

My experience at the clinic was very pleasant. All the staff was super friendly and they really cared for me and made me feel at home. My room was really nice and it didn’t have that horrible hospital stay which was really good.”
