Chicago Otoplasty Surgery (Chicago Ear Reshaping)
Ear surgery, or otoplasty, is usually done to set prominent
ears back closer to the head or to reduce the size of large ears.
Ears that appear to stick out or are overly large can be helped by Chicago ear surgery.
For the most
part, the operation is done on children between the ages of four and 14. Ears
are almost fully grown by age four, and the earlier the surgery, the less
teasing and ridicule the child will have to endure. Ear surgery on adults is
also possible, and there are generally no additional risks associated with ear
surgery on an older patient.
