Prominent Ear Treatment

The ears protruding excessively from the head are referred to as bat ear or also called lop ear or dumbo ear. The anatomically normal protrusion of the ear is 21 degrees to 25 degrees from the head, and if the ear protrudes more than 25 degrees, it makes the ear look extra prominent.

The prominent ear can affect people in many ways, as they always feel concerned. Although it’s not any serious medical condition, the condition still makes people too much concerned. Some people keeping their hair long and always try to keep their ears covered. In the younger population, prominent ears can become the cause of teasing.

What is otoplasty?

Otoplasty is a surgery to correct the ear shape and position, although it can be done at any age but most commonly done in children before school-going age. Although it is a simple surgery, it required skilled planning to put the ear in an accurate angle.

What is post-operative care?

Post-operatively dressing is removed after 5 days, and external stitches are also removed. The patient should avoid sleeping in the same ear for about three months.

How is the otoplasty surgery performed?

The procedure is done under local anesthesia in adults and with general anesthesia in children. The non-absorbable sutures are placed inside the ear on the cartilage to maintain the specific angle. The dressing is done to cover the treated area.

What complications can occur?

Numbness can occur in the treated ear area. But even if it occurs, it resolves by 2 to 3 months.
