Who is Prominent Ear Surgery (Otoplasty) performed?
Otoplasty can be done to anyone who is not satisfied with the shape of the ear. With various otoplasty techniques, natural and patient-satisfying results can be obtained for pathologies such as ear size and prominent protrusion (absence or weakness of the antihelix and hypertrophy of the cavum concha) that bother the patients. 5 years of age is the ideal time, especially for preschool children. The fact that the prominent ear is the subject of mockery at school affects the psychology of the child quite negatively.
