Preparing for Ear Surgery

Overall health and personal outlook can greatly impact the the personal satisfaction and clinical outcome of ear surgery.  In preparing your child for ear surgery, the safety and success of the surgery will require an honest discussion with the child about what they will experience and what is expected of them.  Regardless of age, it is essential that you:

  • Honestly share expectation for your or your child with your plastic surgeon
  • Fully disclose health history, current medications and the use of vitamins
  • Adults disclose the use of herbal supplements, alcohol, tobacco or drugs
  • Commit to following all of your plastic surgeon’s instructions precisely

Dr. Lesavoy will carefully explain the ear surgery you or your child will undergo.  Prior to your procedure, you will be given specific instructions that may include:

  • Pre-surgical considerations, diagnostic testing and medications
  • Day of surgery instructions and medications
  • Specific information related to the use of anesthesia

In addition, you will be asked to sign consent forms to assure Dr. Lesavoy that you fully understand the procedure you or your child will undergo, and any risks and potential complications.  Risks associated with ear surgery include infection, blood clot or a collection of blood at the incision site and risks associated with anesthesia.

It is important that you address all your questions directly with Dr. Lesavoy.  It is natural to feel some anxiety, whether excitement for the anticipated outcome or preoperative stress.  Discuss these feelings with Dr. Lesavoy.
