What can you expect on the day of surgery?
The morning of your ear pinning (otoplasty) procedure, your TOPS plastic surgeon will meet you in the preoperative area to go over any last minute questions or concerns you may have. Your Houston plastic surgeon may make some preoperative markings, and will perform extensive checks and attention to detail ensuring high quality care and safety. If you are undergoing general anesthesia, you will meet the anesthesiologist and their team as well as the members of our operative team.
During the procedure, our Houston plastic surgeons pay meticulous attention to detail and work as a team to ensure a great result with a focus on safety and quality. Your family will be updated of your status periodically, and will be able to talk with your plastic surgeon one-on-one after the procedure is completed. Correction of prominent ears usually takes our Houston plastic surgeons 2 - 3.5 hours to complete. Please keep in mind that the cosmetic procedure may take a little longer for the surgical set up and for our patients to fully recover in the post-operative care unit.
