Our expert says:
Recovery is surprisingly quick, and your child can go back to school within a couple of days, but would have to be careful with swimming and contact sport for a while.
I advise that you wait at least till your child is 10 years old. If you do the procedure any earlier, you run the risk of the ear growing back to its previous position.
