Do your ears have an unnatural appearance? Otoplasty, or ear surgery, is a way of altering the ears to make them more natural looking. This surgery will require an otoplasty recovery period.
Because otoplasty surgery requires reshaping and removing tissues, which the body recognizes as a form of injury, some bruising and swelling may result. Happily, after a few weeks of otoplasty recovery, these will dissipate. During this time, be careful with the area and follow your plastic surgeon’s care instructions.
Though bruising and swelling are far from fun, the results are worth it. Perfect ears await, so find out more by contacting our office and creating an appointment. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Hervè Gentile, a skilled practitioner serving the Corpus Christi area, is happy to explain the procedure and otoplasty recovery process in greater detail.
