How to Prepare for the Surgery?
It is advised to stop certain medication before the surgery as they may increase bleeding. These include herbal supplements as well as over-the-counter drugs. To learn more, feel free to Get in Touch With Our Office.
Recovering after Surgery
Patients are asked to put on a protective dressing over the area. They are also advised to sleep in such a way as to minimize pressure over the ears. It is essential to sleep with the head somewhat elevated as it helps to lessen swelling and bruising. Some of the risks linked with this procedure are: asymmetry, bruising, contour irregularities and reappearance of the prominent deformity.
