Right before the surgery

WHAT IS HAPPENING UNDER THE HANDS OF A SURGEON
What is happening in the operating room
The procedure is performed under local anaesthesia. The surgeon performs an incision behind the ear. He models the cartilage and draws the ears closer to the head. He uses absorbable sutures to grip them. At the end of the surgery, the doctor covers the wound with a sterile bandage and puts an elastic headband on a patient’s head.
Because the scar is located behind the ear, it is almost invisible. You cannot see them in women because of their longer hair.
THE WAYS IN WHICH I CAN SUPPORT RECOVERY
Start by resting
Stick to a leisurely regime during the first week after the surgery. You can return to office activities that are not very demanding a mere day after the surgery. But wear a firming headband or an elastic halter in the correct manner. These should accompany you for 10 to 12 days after the surgery at all times. It is recommended to use one of these for sleeping and sports for one month.
