What is a Prominent Ear? How Does it Occur?

Prominent ears are placed in a greater angle from the head bones while normally they should be placed with 20-25° angle.

It is resulted from flattening of the ear curvature cartilages called as anti-helical folds or concha being bigger than normal or the combination of these two conditions.

This can be seen either on one ear or both.

Who Are Eligible For The Operation?

It is known that 85% of the ear development is completed upon completion of age 4, and this operation can be performed after age 4 for developmental and psycho-social purposes considering how cruel the children of primary school age can be towards each other.

How Is The Operation Performed?

The operation is generally performed under local anesthesia. Ear cartilages will be reached by a cut made behind the ear, and flattened cartilage are often weakened and reshaped by permanent stitches, and sometimes if there is any excess cartilage, it will be removed. The cut will be aesthetically sutured by dissolvable stitches.

The operation lasts about 1-1.5 hours.


  • Actions required to be taken before this operation are not very different from the actions to be taken in other operations to be performed under local anesthesia.

    It is important that there is no localized infection on the operation area.

    Patients must inform the physician of their chronic diseases, regular medications, and allergies if any.

    It is recommended to avoid blood thinners two weeks before and after the operation.

    All kind of vitamins and herbal medicines should also be cut off two weeks before the operation.
