Ear aesthetics or otoplasty procedures are usually operations performed to bring the scooped ears closer to the head by taking them back or to reduce very large ears.

Usually, these operations are performed on children between the ages of 4 and 14. Since ear development is almost completely completed around the age of 4, the sooner the child is operated on, the ridicule by the environment and therefore the child’s psychological discomfort will be prevented.

To get your child to have a scoop ear operation, this section will give you roughly information about the transaction and allow you to evaluate your expectations about the result. It should be remembered that since the characteristics will vary from person to person and each surgery is planned according to the person, this section will naturally not be able to answer all your questions. Do not hesitate to ask your plastic surgeon all kinds of questions about the procedure that you do not understand or are curious about!.

1- All operations carry some uncertainties and risks…

Although complications rarely occur after ear aesthetic surgery performed by a high-quality plastic surgeon, they are easily manageable. However, as with any surgical operation, the possibility of problems specific to these operations should not be ignored.

In very few patients, there is a possibility of blood accumulation in the ear. It can disappear on its own, or it can be eliminated by your plastic surgeon with the help of a small needle tip.

Extremely rarely, the formation of nedbe tissue can be observed in the ear due to the infection of ear cartilage with germs. This type of ebfections is usually treated with antibiotics, but rarely surgical intervention may be required.

2- Planning of Your Child Surgery…

Plastic surgeons also advise most parents to be vigilant about their child’s scoop ear problem and not to press for an operation until the child himself wants to undergo surgery. Most of the children who are uncomfortable with their ears and want to have surgery are surprisingly more compliant during the operation and are satisfied with the result.

At your first meeting with your plastic surgeon, he will examine your child’s condition and even if you want the operation, he will help you determine the most appropriate type of surgical operation. Your plastic surgeon will also provide you with a special set of recommendations during the preparation for the operation. Taking these recommendations into account will positively affect your child’s recovery during and after surgery.
