PROMINENT EAR CORRECTION WITH SUTURES
DO PROMINENT EARS CAUSE HEARING PROBLEMS?
Prominent ear is an aesthetic problem and it does not cause any hearing problems. As having prominent ears do not effect the level of hearing, the correction of prominent ears does not have any positive effect on the hearing level either.
WHAT IS THE MINIMUM AGE TO RECEIVE PROMINENT EAR AESTHETIC TREATMENT?
While aesthetic operations are mostly performed only after the age of 17, prominent ear treatment can be applied after the age of 7. The objective of the early treatment is to prevent negative psychological effects on the child. Individuals with prominent ears complain from not being able to tie their hair as they wish of not being able to have short haircuts. This situation also causes lack of self confidence in some individuals.
