Ear Aesthetics

Treatments in our contracted health institutions


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

Face Lifts
Face is the primary occupation of the plastic surgery. Many patients see the first signs of aging on their face when they look in the mirror and feel disturbed. In this context, aesthetic changes in face provide high satisfaction and the most significant aspect in this step is careful planning in the light of complaints of the patient. The primary target of face lifting or rhytidectomy as medically named is to remove any wrinkles or sagginess on the face and neck area.

Even though mild degenerations and wrinkles on certain parts of the face can be removed by filling, fat injections, hanging, and botulinum toxin applications in recent years, the said techniques may not provide a permanent solution for cases with severe deformation or excess skin. Partial restoration that can be obtained especially on the upper part of the face on such patients will not be parallel with the lower part of the face and the neck and consequently may lead to an unnatural look.

YThe aim in face lifting operations is not to make a patient look 5-10 years etc. younger but much better than people of their age.

Who Can Be A Candidate For Face Lifting Operation?
Ideal people for face lifting operation are those who see the onset of saggy face and neck but still have partially elastic skin without no other health conditions. It is generally performed on the patient population above 40 while it can be applied for younger ages who have an apparent deformation in their look
