How do I prepare for otoplasty?
There really is no preparation necessary. The surgeon will review your medications during your initial consultation, and may recommend stopping certain medications before your procedure.
How long does the procedure take?
The entire process takes from 1-2 hours.
Is there much pain?
Pain from otoplasty is minimal, and is easily controlled by low-grade analgesics.
What happens in the operating room?
An incision is made behind the ears in the natural fold close to where the ears are attached to the skull. The skin is carefully lifted off to expose the underlying cartilage, which is then shaped and pulled back towards the head using carefully positioned permanent sutures. Bandages are applied, and you’re able to go home immediately after the procedure.
How long is recovery?
Most patients can return to work in one day, and resume normal activities at 3 weeks. A bandage is worn 24/7 for one week, and then at night for 3 months
Are there any risks associated with otoplasty?
As with all cosmetic surgeries, there are some risks involved. Special risks for otoplasty include breaking of the sutures which can lead to recurrence of the ear protrusion, bleeding and abnormal scarring. If this happens, it may require additional surgery. Our operating suite is state-of-the-art, and we do everything we can to minimise the risks associated with surgery. Most importantly, The surgeon and his team have detailed protocols in place to prevent complications from occurring.

I had neck/jaw Lipo on Friday evening 16/10/15 after wanting it done since I was 16 as I have never had a jaw line or definition in my neck as always had a slope.The team have been absolutely fantastic. First of all arranging it on a Friday evening so I could have longer to recover over the weekend so I can go back to work on Monday. The communication from everyone has been fantastic. The procedure was great (If you can say great about a tube sucking out fat from your neck!). But seriously made me feel such at ease, comfortable and felt in such safe hands. The surgeon was so meticulous and careful which was great as the neck and jaw are visible to all. I was given a number of one of the surgeons whom I could contact if I had any queries or problems and also Michelle's contact details. This I must say has been extremely helpful. Seriously would not get that kind of patient care and attention anywhere I know and from anywhere I know of people have gone to. Great price, great customer care and attention and great professional and qualified team. Thank you to you all, it really means so much to me, its a massive life changer for me and I have all of you to thank for that! :)
