Otoplasty two weeks post op, tips stick out ?
Nothing can be said yet about the final result just 2 weeks after the operation, regardless of whether you had your ears pinned with a traditional method or with the new stitch method. The preliminary result can first be seen 3 months after the operation at the earliest, and the final result after 6 months. If your ears should remain as they are now, then the tops of your ears can be pinned closer to your head with 2 threads very atraumatic and minimally invasively with the stitch method. A further operation with the traditional method could only correct them by cutting the ears open again, whereby this method can’t guarantee that this position can be corrected because the ears are often permanently held by scars.
