I am in the Marines and wear my hair short. I have been called all kinds of names because my ears stick out. If I opt for otoplasty, will I wear bandages coming home from the hospital? How long before my ears look good?
You will have a bandage covering your ears for about a week. Your ears will look great immediately after the bandage is removed. You will have to wear a headband or sweatband to cover and hold your ears flat to your head while sleeping and doing any activity that might pull them away from your head for 10-12 weeks.
