Will I Need to Spend The Night In Hospital?
What Will Happen After The Procedure?
Soft dressings are applied to the ears where they must remain for a few days. Your surgeon will let you know exactly how long you need this for. You will probably be prescribed painkillers for the first couple of days afterwards.
Your sleep pattern may be disrupted as you are unable to put pressure on the ears for about a week after surgery. In some cases, headbands are given to patients to wear for two weeks to help keep the ears in their new position. If you can manage to wear the headband while working, then you can probably return to your job quickly as well. However, your surgeon will let you know how much time you may need before returning to work or school.
