Otoplasty Post Accutane

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, So I never really took an actual course of accutane (My course was basically 1.5 months of accutane, and I took it about 3 times a week, and each time I took about 20 mg).

So in essence, My question is, how long should I wait till I get otoplasty? My ears bother me a lot because they stick out. It has been about 3 months post accutane thus far

I would talk to a surgeon about this for a definite answer but I would think around 6 months you would be okay since you didn't do a full on accutane course. But I'd mention it to a surgeon before hand for sure. You could get a referral in the mean time and call the office and ask for the nurse of your doctor so he or she can talk to the doctor before you go in so your not wasting time ya know. Thats what I would do.

It sucks that even after taking a minor course of accutane, I still have to wait so long.

But, I don't wanna risk anything so I will wait

6 months is the recommended wait time post-Accutane for surger

Yes, I read that 6 months is the "MINIMUM" recommended wait time post accutane for surgery. I have a consultation this week so I will say what my surgeon says but since I took such a low dose, maybe I can have the surgery quicker. But then again, better safe than sorry

I had otoplasty surgery after having taken 2 courses of Accutane. I am not 100% sure how long after my second course I had the surgery. Maybe a year. It all went fine, healed up properly, no problems at all long term (was about 11 years ago now).
