Protruding ears are a congenital defect of the earlobes. Sometimes the concha (the bowl of the ear) can also be too big.
The surgery is designed to eliminate the existing defect. It can be carried out under local anaesthesia, or under general anaesthesia if requested by the customer. Young children are always operated on under general anaesthesia. The surgical scars are behind the ears and are not visible.
It is recommended to wear an elastic headband for two weeks after the protruding ear surgery. The stitches are removed eight days after the surgery. The patient can take a shower and move about without restrictions.
