Expected results and risks
As for the expected results, these will be manifested immediately on a permanent basis. Being a surgery, this does not mean that the patient is free of any complication or risk. If not treated properly, you may suffer bleeding or infection, problems with healing or chronic pain, as well as losing sensitivity in the area or asymmetry.
The surgeon will make an incision in the posterior area of the ear to reach the cartilage. There, the surgeon will be in charge of modeling the ear; depending on the difficulty you want to solve, cut the cartilage giving it shape, even cutting off excess skin. Other times you can create over the ears, folds with internal sutures. Once the surgery has been successfully completed, with the desired aesthetic form by the patient, the doctor closes the incision, hiding the scars behind the ears and will not be noticed.
Care after the intervention
The patient will rest after the intervention between 1 and 2 days; the ears will be covered all the time with bandages. The following days should use a band on the head by prescription of your doctor, who will decide how many days they will be healed. When taking baths, you should avoid touching the scars. You should also avoid sunlight during healing.
