Do we need to see a doctor before surgery?

Professor Kelly insists that all patients referred for an otoplasty are sent by a GP or other medical consultant. You will be seen by Professor Kelly before surgery. It is important that you provide a full, detailed history including all allergies and previous operations. During the examination, a number of preoperative photographs will be taken and stored in your file. You will be given an information leaflet that explains the operation and its complications.
