WHERE IS THE ANESTHESIA INJECTED?

Question: 
I am scheduled for otoplasty with local anesthesia. Where is the anesthesia injected? How many shots are normally given? Are the shots painful?

Answer: 
Otoplasty numbing shots are typically given behind the ear where there is much less sensitivity. In our centers we will typicall administer an light oral or IV sedation to make these few injection even less comfortable. The shots may pinch like a mosquito bite but as long as the doctor injects the anesthetic slowly the discomfort is minimal.
