After a few hours of rest in the hospital after the operation, the patient is sent home with a bandage. In prominent ear surgery, aesthetics is applied to the back of the ear and there is no need for stitches to be removed later, since the dissolving stitches are removed. Slight swelling and bruising may be seen in the ears 2-3 days after the operation. The bandage is opened at the end of the 3rd day. A sports band is attached to protect the ears. It is desirable to continue using the bandage at night for 4-6 weeks. During this period, it is necessary to stay away from active sports.
