What happens after the operation?

The bandages remain on for 7-10 days. It is very important that the bandages are left undisturbed during this time. At 7-10 days, you will be asked to bring your child to an outpatient clinic where the bandages will be removed by the nursing staff. The nursing staff will thoroughly check the wound site and remove any stitches. It is normal for the ears to be bruised and swollen at this stage.
