The lack of self-trust and complexes often begin with an unattractive appearance. Modern plasty allows you to change the natural forms for the better. For example, you can make the contour of the face clearer with the help of the suture lifting or you can remove the everted ears with the help of otoplasty as well as you can add harmony to the face by changing the shape of the ear lobe.
An important aspect of otoplasty is the observance of the postoperative regimen. During this period, much depends on the discipline of the patient, who should fulfill all the appointments of the observing specialist. Before the operation it is necessary to learn about all the pitfalls that can spoil the aesthetic effect.
In case of the perfect health, the patient can leave the clinic after 1-2 hours. At the request or recommendation of the surgeon it is possible to stay in the hospital for the first day - it may be performed in order to observe and receive recommendations for the rehabilitation period.
The final stage of otoplasty is the application of a fixative bandage. It retains a layer of cotton wool soaked in mineral oil to eliminate swelling more quickly. And the main function of the bandage is to press the ears in their new position and protect them from mechanical injuries. A plaster is being applied onto the seam, which protects it from possible contaminants. The final stage of plasty is application of the tennis elastic band or kerchief. It is necessary to wear a fixative bandage from a week to two weeks.
A day after the plastic surgery, the first bandaging is performed. The patient also receives recommendations for taking medications for an accelerated healing process. The procedure is repeated in 3-4 days. After the postoperative week, the patient visits the clinic to remove and inspect the sutures.
A noticeable result appears immediately after the completion of otoplasty. However, there is a process of active healing during the first week, which is accompanied by swelling of the tissues. That means that there are bruises, redness and swelling in the operated area, which makes the contour blurred. A more accurate form appears after 2 weeks on average. And the final result is obtained not earlier than two months later.
The final result is influenced by many factors, for example, it is the compliance with the regime during rehabilitation. For example:
If the patient adheres to all rules of the postoperative period, then the effect will be the most aesthetic one, and there will be no traces of the sutures. In case of violation of discipline, there may be ruptures as well as appearance of visible scars or deformation of the cartilaginous tissue or skin are possible. In order to avoid repeated correction, we recommend that you follow all the surgeon's prescriptions.
