Bleeding after otoplasty

It is not at all unusual to have a small amount of bleeding 4 days after an otoplasty.  Just keep an eye on it as it should be bleeding less and not more as time goes by.  Strenuous activity can sometimes lead to bleeding after surgery so be sure not to over exert yourself as well.
