Otoplasty

RECOVERY NOTES

IN ORDER TO ACHIEVE THE BEST POSSIBLE RESULTS, THE PATIENT AND DOCTOR MUST WORK TOGETHER AS A TEAM.

After the surgery is completed, bandages will be wrapped around the head. This method secures the ear in place and assists with the healing process. The bandages are usually removed within a week and replaced with smaller dressings. Generally, post-operative instructions call for plenty of rest and limited movement in order to speed up the healing process and reduce the recovery time. Patients sometimes report minor pain associated with surgery. Any discomfort is treated effectively with oral medication.
