Otoplasty FAQs

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.
