post op picture

This is Trey at his one week post op appointment. The ear looks great. There was a crease in the lobe so we are taping it and using the cup again for another week in hopes to encourage the crease to go away. If it doesn't we can go back in the future when we want to for a simple fix per Dr. Lewin but we are hoping it will just heal fine. We are looking forward it to being healed up. She did do fat injections so his cheek looks as full as his right cheek and she put a few stitches to help with his small bald spot to make it smaller and less noticeable when he has a short haircut. She also tried to revise his arm scar to make it smaller as well but over all she was really happy how he healed. He isn't supposed to sleep on his ear mainly so it stays in place, he doesn't have the boney structure to keep it even with his other ear. His is due to his Hemifacial Microsomia. Thankfully he usually sleeps in his right side anyways. We love Dr. Lewin and can't say enough to how wonderful she has been. Trey loves her still and is very happy with his new ear. I have no regrets with the surgery and so thankful we were able to do it at such a young age. I will post pictures as it heals and hopefully in six months his ear will fully healed.
