Prominent Ear

Standing ears (Prominent Ear: Is the shape of the ears strange?)

For those who think that the shape of their ears is strange by nature, we have a lecture. Among them, the state in which the ears are raised forward is called “Prominent ear” in clinical medicine. Many Japanese people don’t seem to care if their ears are a little raised, but in Europe and the United States, they are often the target of bullying, and they are often treated by surgery at an early age.

Even in Japan, if your ears are highly raised, you are covered by insurance, and in this case, you generally need to be at least 30 ° above your skull. These treatments are handled by plastic surgeons and are delicate operations that require detailed preoperative design and ingenuity in surgical procedures.

Surgery is a one-day operation with local anesthesia, in which the cartilage of the ear is modified to make near-normal creases, and sometimes the entire ear is bent toward the skull. Detailed counseling with a specialist is important, as one fixed method may not work.

Prominent Ear (standing ear) is not just standing ears, but also have weak or no bends like the streaks that should be in the middle of ear, and even when the entire ear is far away from the skull. , There are various cases. Therefore, it is necessary to select an accurate diagnosis and the most suitable treatment method for each case. Our doctors have been involved in many standing ear treatments for over 20 years and can meet those needs.
