What to Expect

Children can resume non-strenuous activities and return to school after about a week; adults can usually return to their normal activities after about 5 days.


Although the improvements from ear surgery are often subtle, they can have a great impact on the patient's self-esteem. Adults often enjoy a sense relief because they are no longer self-conscious about their ears. Their self-confidence is usually enhanced as well. Younger children are often spared from emotional harm that can be caused by insensitive comments and teasing.
