About how long is the surgery for otoplasty?
An otoplasty, or ear surgery, is performed as an outpatient procedure. On children, it is generally performed under general anesthesia. On young adults or mature adults, the surgery can be performed under sedation anesthesia and it takes about an hour and a half and has a very expeditious recovery.
