Recovering from otoplasty surgery
After otoplasty surgery, the ears will be bandaged to minimize swelling and facilitate healing. The length of recovery time depends on each patient and the complexity of the procedure. Most patients are able to return to work, school, and other daily activities within a week. Ear surgery results usually become apparent within three weeks, after which time full recovery is achieved. Dr. Tansavatdi closely monitors patients throughout their recovery and provides detailed daily post-operative instructions.
