At Bizrahmed, we ask you to conduct a self-evaluation to help you assess if you are one hundred per cent ready, both physically and mentally, for Otoplasty surgery. You should ask yourself the following questions:

  • Do I have realistic expectations about what Otoplasty can achieve?
  • Do I know how I want my ears to look after surgery?

A suitable time to have an Otoplasty is when a child is 5-6 years old and 90% of their ears' growth is complete. This is the earliest recommended age.



This is a very common and safe procedure, although there are risks with any surgery, including infection, bleeding, and problems with anesthesia. Rarely, the hole in the eardrum does not close after the tube comes out and might need to be fixed surgically.



Practically, there is no recovery time needed. However, because of the bulky dressing patient may not be able to attend a school or a grown-up people may not be able to meet other people. There is could be swelling and bruising, which may last from a few days to a week.



The procedure is not painful unless there are some complications. If unusual pain is noted the patient must inform the doctor.



Here are some of the important steps that you must take before the procedure:

  • Discuss all medication and vitamins that you regularly use with your consultant to see if you should stop taking them before surgery and, if so, for how long. For example, any medications and vitamins that interfere with your body’s blood clotting ability, such as Vitamin E, will need to be stopped completely before surgery.
  • Smokers should quit at least two months before surgery; smoking interferes with the efficiency of blood flow to the skin which may have an impact on achieving optimal results and increase the risk of complications.
  • You should be in the best possible health and at a stable weight; ensuring that you follow a healthy, balanced diet before surgery will help you to be in optimal physical condition to help promote the best outcome.
