After the first 24-72 hours, most of the initial swelling from the ear reshaping surgery will begin to dissipate.
Between 72 hours and a week, many patients will feel comfortable enough to return to work depending on their hairstyle and tolerance of the swelling regarding both social situations and responsibilities involved at work.
After 3 months the swelling should have completely subsided, and all that remains are slightly pink scars where the incisions were made. The scars are very small on the back of the ear and can be settled faster with the use of scar optimizing gels.
Ear Reshaping refers to a range of common cosmetic surgery procedures designed to correct the size and shape of the ear and ear lobe. Many people who dislike the shape or size of their ears develop habits to mask the problem (e.g. wearing their hair long), often being unaware of the quick, safe and effective solutions provided by surgery. Typical procedures include pinnaplasty (to pin back ears), ear reduction (to reduce the size of the ears) as well as the correction of a range of ear deformities either apparent at birth (easily corrected by moulding the ear as it grows) or acquired later in life through trauma, piercing, surgery or cancer.Go to Treatment
