The operation is done under general anaesthesia and requires admission to the hospital. Generally, a total of 48 hours' stay is required. Shortly after admission, blood tests will be carried out. The child will be required to fast overnight i.e. no food or drink after 12 midnight before the operation. For a younger child, a shorter period of fasting might be sufficient, depending on the anaesthetist's assessment. The operation is done through the oral cavity. No incision will be made on the face or neck.
