Causes and Aesthetics of Prominent Ear

Ears both affect a person’s appearance and have functional importance.

Prominent ears affect more than 5% of the population. Prominent ears can be caused by various deformities.

Firstly, if the cartilage of the outer ear is much larger than the normal size, the ear is likely to become more prominent.

Secondly, if the cartilage is underdeveloped, the cartilage protrusion at the top of the ear does not fold completely. The outer edge of the ear sticks outwards and this is one of the reasons for having prominent ears. Apart from these reasons, prominent ears can also be the result of an injury.

Ear Aesthetic Techniques

There are two options for patients looking for a solution for their prominent ears.

Traditional otoplasty requires invasiveness and complexity. The surgeon makes incisions behind the ears to access and manipulate the cartilage to reshape and reposition the ears.


The surgeon;

-Ear augmentation if the patient's ears are not fully developed,
-Ear pinning of individuals whose ears protrude prominently from the sides of their heads,
-Use ear reduction techniques to reduce the size of the patient's ear.

The surgeon will use local anesthesia to numb the ear area during surgery and non-absorbable sutures to position the ears closer to the head. As a result, patients can achieve their desired ear appearance and shape without incisions.


Non-surgical otoplasty can be performed on patients as young as 8 years old and adults of all ages.
