What anesthesia is needed?
The procedure is performed in small children with local anesthesia and sedation, in larger, more cooperative children and in adults, with local anesthesia.
How will the scars be?
The incisions are hidden well behind the ears and are therefore inconspicuous. In rare cases hypertrophy or keloid may occur due to hyperactivity of the body during healing, and further therapeutic measures are needed to improve it.
An elastic bandage is left for one to two days. Then an elastic ribbon is used to protect the area according to the instructions you will receive.
Great care should be taken when fitting and removing the clothes.
Attention is also needed when using glasses so that they do not touch the operating area, especially on the 1st week.
What is the recovery time?
After the operation of otoplasty, one can return to mild daily activities, after 2 to 3 days.
