Chicago Otoplasty – Ear Surgery
Being born with ears that stick out or are abnormally large can be extremely difficult for children who are often tirelessly teased by their peers. Unfortunately, the long-lasting effects of this teasing can lead to low self-esteem in their teens and even in adulthood. Chicago Cosmetic Ear Surgery, or Otoplasty, is a procedure to set the ears back closer to the sides of the head. The cartilage may also be re-shaped or some bits of it removed, as need to create a more symmetrical and harmonious appearance. Cosmetic ear surgery can also be used to correct torn ear lobes and other imperfections in the structure of the ear.
