Otoplasty surgery, Is there any risk of it?

Op. Dr. Serif Yavuz 

Otoplasty surgery is a seriously irritating problem that many people suffer from. The fact that the ears are more prominent than normal when viewed from the front is a situation that summarizes the prominent ear problem. Prominent ear problem directly affects people’s private life. Due to this problem, there are people with low self-esteem and confidence. The only solution for people who complain of prominent ear problems is Otoplasty surgery. However, there are questions about whether this operation has any harm for those who want to have Otoplasty surgery.

Why is the ear opened after prominent ear surgery?

One of the possible situations that can be experienced after Otoplasty surgery is the opening of the ear. However, we can state that this problem will not be experienced if the surgery is performed under the right conditions. In fact, experiencing this problem is directly related to the age at which Otoplasty surgery is performed. It will be correct to perform this surgery at an age when the ears are softer and the cartilage structure is not fully hardened.

The period we are talking about is between the ages of six and eight. These are times, especially when children start school when they meet peer bullying due to prominent ears. For this reason, it is recommended that children with prominent ears undergo Otoplasty surgery before they reach school age. In other words, it is more appropriate to perform Otoplasty surgery before the age of 18.

How to avoid ear-opening?

Some procedures are applied to eliminate the problem of ear-opening that may occur after Otoplasty surgery. Weakening of cartilage both from behind and in front of it is one of these procedures. In addition, there are also cartilage cutting techniques used in the operation. However, many doctors use the twisting technique instead of cutting the cartilage. The cutting technique has some risks. We have to say that sharp and externally visible deformities in the skin are annoying. The crimping technique is much more reliable. Much more successful results are obtained with the technique of weakening the cartilage.
