The Next Steps If You Plan To Have Otoplasty In Turkey 

  • Prepare a list of questions for your doctor: prepare a list of questions to ensure you receive quality treatment. Common questions to ask - do they provide a translator? Do they have patients' testimonials? Is the clinic registered with the national association?

  • Trust your instincts:  This personal element should not be underestimated since the treatment can be traumatic for many people. Mainly when undertaken in a foreign country and in unfamiliar surroundings. You should trust your instincts as much as the raw data. If a clinic feels wrong, then walk away.

  • Have a clear expectation of the results: understand the necessary procedure plan. 

  • Choose a surgeon registered with an international governing body like the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery. Or any other reputable international board. 

  • Verify the surgeon's experience. Ask about the surgeon's education, additional fellowship training, and how often they performed the treatment. 

  • Schedule an online consultation. Most clinics or hospitals that work with international patients offer this service. 

Once you decide on a clinic, we will plan and arrange an all-inclusive ear surgery package in Turkey that suits your personal preferences. To ensure you get the best otoplasty surgeon in Turkey.

Ear Correction Surgery Turkey Recovery Time

You can return to work and light activities after one week. In two weeks, the final results will be visible. You will notice small visible changes for up to twelve months.

Most ear pinning surgeries need a recovery period between three to five weeks. Expect to return to normal activities within four weeks.


Defects or deformities of the ear can be caused by: 

  • Congenital conditions that are present from birth such as anotia or microtia
  • Physical trauma or disease in the ear region

How is Corrective Ear Surgery Performed?

After your surgeon administers the anesthesia, your surgeon will begin the procedure by making small incisions behind your ears to expose the cartilage tissues. This process varies from one patient to another.

Depending on your condition, the surgeon can use different techniques to improve the contour and size of the ears.

The surgeon will make the incisions carefully hidden in the depths of the ear folds. At the end of the procedure, your surgeon will use dissolvable sutures to reshape and secure the cartilage and close the incisions.


1. Final consultation with the surgeon

When you arrive at the clinic, you will have a face-to-face consultation with your Otoplasty specialist surgeon. During this session you are expected to inform the surgeon about your medical record, allergies, and if you’re currently taking any medication.

Even after telling your surgeon about your medical record, you must go through some medical tests. Afterward, you will discuss the procedure in detail. If you are on the same page with your surgeon, he/she will make an illustration by drawing some marks on your face as he/she prepares you for the surgery.

2. Taking the anesthesia

When the test results are out and your surgeon is satisfied, you will be then given anesthesia. Adults are given local anesthesia, whereas children are given general anesthesia.  

3. The procedure

Once the anesthesia has gone into effect, your surgeon will begin the procedure by making small incisions behind your ears to expose the cartilage tissues. This process varies from one individual to the other as surgeons can use different techniques that are aimed at improving the contour, size, and deformity of the ears.

So, when incisions are made on the front of the ear they are carefully hidden in the depths of the ear folds. At the end of the procedure, your surgeon will use dissolvable sutures to reshape and secure the cartilage, and he/she will also use them to close the incisions.

4. Post-Op Instructions

  • Usually, they will discharge you from the hospital on the day of surgery.
  •  You will need a friend or a family member to take you home after the surgery.
  •  When you arrive home, you should take a rest with your head elevated on 2-3 pillows.
  •  It’s best to eat a light, soft, and cool diet once you have recovered from the anesthetic.
  • You will be hungry after the surgery but, it’s better not to eat too much or too heavy to prevent postoperative nausea and vomiting. 

What Should I Expect from an Otoplasty Procedure?

  • You may experience postoperative pain and discomfort, and this can be controlled with the prescribed medication.
  • In one week, children can return to school and adults can return to work.
  • Once the post-op dressings are removed, your surgeon will recommend a headband to wear for 3 months to protect the ears while sleeping.
  • You may return to normal exercises in 2 weeks and sports activities in 3 weeks.
  • When the dressings are removed, your ears may look swollen, but the ear projection and contours will look normal.
  • The swelling will be gone by 4 weeks after the surgery.
