Ear Surgery (Otoplasty) Chicago
Otoplasty, or ear surgery, is used to reduce ear size or pin back prominent ears. Children between four and 14 years of age are the most common ear surgery patients, but adults who are self-conscious about their ears may also benefit from the procedure. Ear pinning can produce a more attractive and balanced overall appearance. Performed as an outpatient procedure, otoplasty requires general anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation. Throbbing, discomfort, swelling, redness, and other temporary side effects may occur. Most patients are able to return to normal activities in one week.
Ear pinning can help individuals enjoy renewed confidence and a more proportionate look. During your personal consultation with Dr. Horn, he can develop a treatment plan based on your specific goals and needs.
