Your Ear Surgery Procedure

We will do everything in our power to help you feel informed and relaxed on the day of your ear surgery. After you arrive at our Bellevue office, you will meet with Dr. Min or Dr. Levy and with your anesthesiologist. Once any questions you have are answered, you will be given medication to help you relax. You will be brought into the surgical suite, where you will be prepped for surgery and given a general anesthetic or a local with sedation. Surgery usually takes 1-2 hours. You will wake up in the recovery room, where you’ll be closely monitored. We’ll let you know how everything went and advise you on what to expect as you recover. You’ll want to be sure to arrange for someone to pick you up and stay with you for the first couple of days as you adjust.

Prior to Your Ear Surgery Procedure

Prior to your ear surgery, we will schedule a preoperative appointment in Bellevue with Dr. Min or Dr. Levy. The purpose of this meeting is to make sure that your procedure goes smoothly and efficiently. Our staff will review your consent forms with you, answer any questions you might have, and the risks and benefits of surgery will be thoroughly reviewed. You may be given your prescriptions to be filled prior to your surgery. You will be given a list of medications and supplements to avoid for two weeks before and after surgery. If you are a smoker, you will be advised to stop smoking at least two weeks prior to surgery. You should not smoke for at least two weeks following surgery. The procedure may require that some hair around the ear be shaved.
