In Perth, otoplasty is performed in an accredited hospital, either as a day case or with a short hospital stay. This will depend on the patient’s general health, the extent of the procedure, and your surgeon’s advice.
Otoplasty may be carried out under local anaesthesia (with or without sedation) or general anaesthesia. Usually, children are given a general anaesthetic. The surgery takes about 1 hour.← Is hospitalisation necessary for ear surgery?
