In order to reposition the ear cartilage and align it more proportionately with the patient’s facial characteristics, contemporary procedures reshape it rather than remove it. After surgery, patients can go home in an hour. The ears are covered in a dressing. After surgery, this dressing is removed within 24 to 48 hours, and for the following 3 to 4 days, a smaller wrapping or headband is used instead. Dr. Artur utilizes sutures that dissolve, so there is no need to remove the stitches. After an otoplasty, the scar is concealed behind the ear.
