After Otoplasty, initial results are noticeable once swelling and bruising
subside, usually within a few weeks. However, the final, more refined results
become apparent as the ears heal and any residual swelling diminishes over
the following months. By about six months post-surgery, most of the swelling
has resolved, and the ears appear closer to their ultimate shape and position.
Full and permanent results, free from residual swelling, become evident within
a year post-operation.
