RESULTS AND AFTERCARE
After ear pinning surgery, soft dressings are placed on each ear and should remain in place for a least a few days. A headband may also be recommended to help hold your ears in their new positions for a few days to a few weeks. The initial recovery period following ear surgery is usually 1-2 weeks. During this time most temporary side effects such as bruising, swelling and discomfort should subset.
Throughout the Otoplasty recovery period, it is imperative that patients avoid all activities during which, their newly reshaped ears may be damaged, such as side-sleeping or participating in contact sports. Within about 2-3 months, final Otoplasty results should be visible and all activity restrictions can be lifted.
