In contrast to many aesthetic procedures, prominent (flap) ear correction is performed and recommended at primary school age.
The reason for early operation is to prevent problems that may be encountered in the social environment of the school.
It is possible to use sutures, flaps or removal of excess cartilage fragments depending on the characteristics of the problem in prominent (flap) ear correction.
Elastic bandage application and medical dressing are usually performed for one week after the operation. Depending on the recovery rate, we generally recommend use of bandana or similar accessories around the ears.
After the correction surgery for prominent (flap) ears, some recurrence is almost always observed because of the elastic structure of the cartilage that forms the auricle.
