Ear Reshaping surgery (Otoplasty)
There are some people who have a perfect facial shape, but have prominent ears or protruding ears that may make them sensitive about their appearance and create a poor self-image. The main structure of the ears is cartilage which can be reshaped, just like a rhinoplasty. The factors of concern in regards to ear reshaping surgery are ear characters, cartilage strength, and the age of people who desire to correct their ears. Individuals will have different concerns; therefore a doctor consultation is required before having surgery in order to correct your problems.
Sleep on your back and avoid sleeping on your side.
Do not drink alcohol or smoke for a week after surgery.
You should avoid strenuous exercise for 2 weeks following the surgery.
Sleep on your back and avoid putting weight on your ear lobes.
Apply medication and clean the incisions by your surgeon’s prescription.
Bandages are placed on the incision in a period (depends on your surgeon’s discretion), and follow up with your surgeon.
