If your ears are something that you are self-conscious about, Otoplasty in Melbourne, Florida is the way to go. The position of your ears as well as the prominence of your ears is how Otoplasty can help. Ear surgery will create a natural shape, while bringing balance and proportion to your overall facial appearance. Otoplasty can greatly boost self-esteem and confidence.
However, Otoplasty recovery can be painful, but it does vary from patient to patient. The ears usually appear swollen or bruised right after the procedure, which will subside after some time. A few tips that we find helpful after your Otoplasty are:
- Try not to sleep on your side during recovery
- Do not wash the hair with shampoo for up to one week after the surgery
- Keep head elevated to minimize swelling
- Take any prescribed pain medication as directed to alleviate any discomfort.
Adults can generally return to work after several days and children can typically return to school after one week. Although the recovery may be painful, the benefits are worth it. If your ears have always bothered you then ear surgery could solve all your problems.
