After Otoplasty, initial recovery typically involves wearing a protective
headband or dressing for a week or two. Mild discomfort, swelling, and
bruising may persist for a few weeks, gradually subsiding. Most patients can
resume non-strenuous activities within a week, while strenuous activities
should be avoided for about 4 to 6 weeks. Full recovery, including resolution of
swelling and return to normal appearance, may take several months. Follow-up
visits with the surgeon are essential for monitoring progress.
