How long is the recovery time after ear reshaping surgery?

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.
