Ways to perform ear correction in Chirurgomf  

Directly the method itself depends on the anatomical features of the person. The best way to carry out the operation is selected. For example, with lop-eared ears, we remove part of the skin behind the ear, after which the cartilaginous tissue folds. Due to this action, the ear is pressed against the head and acquires a natural position. Often, other operations are not complex. Anesthesia or general anesthesia is applied, the doctor makes an incision behind the ear, through which he performs the necessary manipulations, and then the incisions are closed with sutures. An exception is the formation of the auricle in its complete or partial absence. It also requires careful and accurate work of the surgeon.

 After otoplasty, the postoperative period plays an important role in life. During this time, the patient must follow the rules that the doctors will explain to him. The main stages of rehabilitation are as follows: 

  • The first day is uncomfortable;
  • The first week is the initial healing period;
  • At the end of the first week, stitches are removed;
  • Second week - primary healing after suture removal;
  • The third and fourth weeks are the period of general healing;
  • The next 2-3 months - the healing is completely completed, and the result is obvious and coincides with the expected;  

But in order for the rehabilitation period to go well, here's what the patient needs to know:

  • Come on time for dressing;
  • Do not remove the fixation bandage during the first week;
  • Pain medications can be taken;
  • Sleep on your back, do not touch or wet your ears;
  • After the first three days and until the end of the second week, the head should be washed only with water without any means;
  • Contact sports are prohibited;
  • Physical activity should be avoided;
  • Avoid direct sunlight;
  • The diet should not contain spicy, salty, fatty and smoked foods;
  • It is necessary to exclude alcohol and nicotine;
