Our clinicians are exceptionally dedicated and highly skilled professionals. They are here to provide treatment, support, advice and practical methods to understand and treat all areas of ear, nose and throat conditions, and complementary care from the fields of dermatology, nutrition, dietetics, speech pathology and nursing.
BANDAGES / SUTURES – About the head is placed the fascia in the operating room, there are cases that can be placed and the surgical drain underneath the skin, both are removed one day after the intervening. The bandage around the head is replaced by a stretch band that will be held all the time for the next 6 days to protect the ear from any possible bleeding. The elastic band on the second, third and fourth week is held only at night. The sutures are hidden behind the ear and removed after two weeks. The absorbable sutures can be left to self-absorb.
AFTER INTERVENTION ACTIVITY – In order for tissues to be fully healed, strong physical activity is required to be eliminated for two weeks. After two weeks you can resume running, bicycling, aerobics but not lifting weights by the end of the third week. There is no need to stay in bed for a day. As soon as the waistcoats are replaced with the elastic band, you can make a bath, but you can put the strap straight after the shower.
SWELLING – Ear surgery is moderate, but it lasts for about 10 days.
BRUISES – Bruises are normal. There are times that can go down to the neck. For seven days, most of the bruises disappear.
BLOODSHED – Small bleeding or shedding of tissue fluids to a limited extent around the sutures may occur and last up to several days after the intervening. If bleeding is persistent and massive then it should be reported to the surgeon.
PAIN / DISCOMFORT – Most patients experience little pain after intervening. which is easily administered with analgesic.
What happens after Otoplasty?
HEAVINESS – You may feel eyelashes up to several weeks after intervening. This is related to swelling or changes occurring during the healing process.
