How to get the best result?

Pre-surgical process

  • Previous evaluation appointment:
    In it you will expose the expectations you have of your surgery. The surgeon will explain the surgery, the most recommended technique for you, type of anesthesia and clinic where the procedure will be performed. He will order some photos and laboratory tests.
  • Pre anesthetic appointment:
    Assessment of your general condition and laboratory results by the anesthesiologist.

Post-surgical care

  • Keep a soft bandage that the surgeon has left on your ears for 2 or 3 days.
    Sleep for at least the first 3 weeks face up and with the header slightly raised. Avoid sleeping on your side during that time, so as not to generate undue pressure on the ears.
    If your doctor tells you to, use balaca for 3 to 4 weeks, to keep your ears in the desired position.


  • The otoplasty has a rapid recovery. A disability of one week is recommended before returning to study or work. Contact sports physical activity or water activities can be restarted after 2 months.
