The ear shape just like their size, is determined before birth, children often inherit drooping ears from their parents or grandparents. The ear can be drooping because of the undeveloped, irregular antihelix or excessively large ears.
Most often it is carried out under local anaesthesia. The skin incision is made behind the ear, usually by removing a strip of the skin. The antihelix fold is formed, softening the cartilage and closing its softened fragment. A large ear (cartilage) is attached with special stitching to the area behind the ear, as well as the ear drooping angle is changed. The skin behind the ear is closed by the “internal” seam, which is removed after 7-8 days.
