About Otoplasty Surgery
Otoplasty before and after pictures show dramatic improvements. It involves earlobe plastic surgery including earlobe reconstruction. The procedure is almost always done on both ears to keep them symmetric.
Otoplasty is an outpatient procedure Dr. Rochlin performs in the surgical suite at her office. Depending on the patient, she will use sedation or local anesthesia.
How to Prepare for Otoplasty Surgery?
Otoplasty preparation is similar to other facial surgeries. Patients are instructed to avoid medications and substances for two weeks before and after surgery, including:
- Painkillers; acetaminophen is OK if needed
- Blood thinners
Be sure to fill the antibiotic and other prescriptions from your doctor before the surgery.
What to Expect From Otoplasty?
After otoplasty, the ears are covered with protective bandages for a few days. They should only be removed by a doctor; by then, you’ll see a noticeable difference!
You’ll have to wear a protective headband at night for two to six weeks. Try not to sleep on your side.
