THE SCOOP EAR IS A PSYCHOLOGICAL PROBLEM RATHER THAN A PHYSICAL ONE: IS THERE A SOLUTION?
The nose and ear are the organs that most often catch the eye of the person and the environment in which he is located in social life. Therefore, we would like to correct the unpleasant sides in them and make them look nice. Many people are looking for a solution to get rid of their curiosity about the scoop ear aesthetics in Antalya Turkey, Turkey iHealth member and International hospital department Aesthetic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Specialist Operator Doctor tells us.
Problems with the nose usually begin to develop after a person’s adolescence, while the problem of the scoop ear occurs from the age of the patient, the early childhood period when he begins to lose his mind, that is, from the age of 4-5 years. The main reason for resorting to this aesthetic in the cases we have seen is the psychological pressure of the environment. Especially a child who has reached school age and has a scoop ear problem complains that his friends at school mock his condition. Unfortunately, peer bullying seen from friends or even from close relatives in early childhood leads to psychological permanent problems in the child, unable to cope with this behavioral pressure and mobbing. In such cases, it is the right option to offer psychological support to the patient before planning surgery.
THEY ARE APPLYING SO THAT THEIR CHILDREN WILL NOT BE LIKE THEMSELVES
Another reason why the age of the patient is so low in ear aesthetics is that parents want to eliminate this problem before they even reach school age and are not too exposed to these environmental pressures by realizing that their baby/child has a scoop ear problem. Even some adult scoop ear surgery patients apply to us at a very early age with the idea that their children will not have the problems they have experienced when they have a baby.
NOT RECOMMENDED BEFORE THE AGE OF 6
Scoop ear surgery although the practical and recovery period is also made comfortable by modern methods of today’s medicine, an operation in Turkey lasting as little as 1-2 hours with general or local anesthesia, we do not recommend this surgery to children before the age of 6.
Another psychological problem is experienced by people who have had scoop ear surgery in the past, whose ears have become old again, either unilaterally or bilaterally.
WILL THE SCOOP NOT OPEN AFTER EAR SURGERY?
There is a possibility that the scoop will open somewhat after ear aesthetics. But if the technique used is a technique that permanently changes the cartilage structure, such as shaping the outer eardrum, and if a surgical technique was used instead of hanging it with a rope, the probability of reopening is also quite low.
SMALL DIFFERENCES DEC BE SEEN BETWEEN THE OPERATED EARS
Psychological trauma in patients with scoop ear aesthetics can continue its effect even though they have undergone surgery. This time, obsessions such as examining the ears that are constantly undergoing surgery, testing their symmetry may occur. In such cases, it is important to provide patients with realistic expectations about how much symmetry can be achieved in advance. Of course, the surgeon’s request is the same as that of his patient; symmetrical and ears… but as with all organs that are double, there may be millimetric differences between the operated ears.
In this case, the suggestion that should be given to the patient will be to ensure that he focuses on the whole. In other words, instead of looking at which ear shaft is in front and which one is millimeter behind, it is recommended that the beauty reflected on the face after surgery notice changes such as adopting a more mature facial expression from a childish state, getting calmer, positive looks from more irritable and nervous looks and feel happy.
