The surgery for correction of prominent ears (prominanimus) is a simple procedure, done under local anesthesia (with or without oral sedation - tablet to sleep, depending on the patient choice) and does not require hospitalization. 

      You spend 3 hours in the clinic and can go home. And as dressing, we use immobilization gauze for 24 hours and then a tennis or ballet head band for two weeks, until the healing process is completed.


      There are no resultant scars in front of the ear, the whole surgery is made on the back and is very fast (about 1 hour for the two sides).
