OTOPLASTY RESULTS AND RECOVERY
The results of cosmetic ear surgery are immediate, although you may not be able to see them for a few days as dressings are typically required to protect the ears and support their new shape. Any lingering scars are well hidden in the creases of the ears and will fade with time. Subtle refinements to the ears’ appearance will continue as they heal.
Most otoplasty patients, including young children, can resume routine activities within a week of the procedure. Patients should avoid intense play and contact sports until cleared for increased physical activity by Dr. Smith, who will provide you with comprehensive recovery guidelines prior to your surgery. The entire team at Smith Cosmetic Surgery will be here to support you through every step of the recovery process.
For additional information about the otoplasty procedure or to arrange your personal consultation, please contact Smith Cosmetic Surgery. A nationally recognized facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Smith welcomes patients from the Denver metro area and across the country.
