the operation ..
A small incision is made in the back of the ear to reveal the cartilage.

Cool or lightly sculpt the cartilage without removing it.. Bend it back towards the head or remove the excess parts of it.. It gives the ear the appropriate shape so that the natural folds and wrinkles of the ear do not change.. Then it is pulled back after being folded and fixed with permanent stitches..
In severe cases, part of this cartilage is cut and excised for its thickness.. Then the ends of the cartilage are sutured with permanent threads..
The threads used to install and shape the cartilage are stable and do not dissolve over time.. to give the new natural shape of the ear..
Sometimes a part of the skin behind the ear is removed to maintain the results if necessary.
If only one ear is defective and the other is healthy, they are usually balanced to match.. Also, surgery is performed on both ears to achieve a better balance for them…
The back incision is closed with surgical stitches that are removed within a week of the operation or with sutures that dissolve automatically.. In all cases, the wound is in the skin fold in the back of the ear, where the wound fades over time without anyone noticing..
Finally, the head is covered with a large pressure bandage on the ear to ensure that healing occurs.
