What activities should be avoided after an otoplasty ?

After undergoing otoplasty (ear surgery), it is essential to follow your surgeon's post-operative instructions carefully to promote proper healing and minimize the risk of complications. While specific guidelines may vary depending on individual circumstances and the extent of the surgery, here are some common activities that should be avoided during the initial recovery period :

  1. Strenuous activities : Avoid engaging in strenuous physical activities, heavy lifting, or vigorous exercise for at least the first few weeks following surgery. These activities can increase blood pressure and strain the surgical area, potentially leading to complications or delaying the healing process.
  2. Touching or manipulating the ears : Refrain from touching, rubbing, or manipulating the ears, as this can disrupt the healing process and increase the risk of infection or injury to the surgical site.
  3. Sleeping position : Sleep with your head elevated and avoid sleeping on your side or directly on your ears to prevent pressure on the surgical area and minimize swelling.
  4. Wearing headphones or headsets : Avoid wearing headphones or headsets that put pressure on the ears for at least several weeks after surgery, as this can interfere with the healing process and cause discomfort.
  5. Hair care : Be gentle when washing or styling your hair to avoid pulling on the ears or putting pressure on the surgical site. Your surgeon may provide specific instructions for hair care during the recovery period.
  6. Exposure to sunlight : Protect your ears from direct sunlight and UV exposure by wearing a wide-brimmed hat or applying sunscreen with adequate sun protection factor (SPF). Sun exposure can increase the risk of swelling, discomfort, and complications.
  7. Swimming and submerging in water : Avoid swimming or submerging your ears in water, including pools, hot tubs, and baths, until your surgeon clears you to do so. Submersion in water can increase the risk of infection and compromise the healing process.
  8. Smoking and alcohol : Refrain from smoking and excessive alcohol consumption during the recovery period, as they can impair healing and increase the risk of complications.

It is crucial to adhere to your surgeon's specific post-operative instructions and attend all follow-up appointments to ensure proper healing and monitor your progress.
