Improving the Appearance of Protruding Ears in Children
Children who are born with ears that are more prominent than others, are out of proportion with the rest of their features and protrude out from the sides of the head, often become victims of cruel teasing by their peers. Through Chicago Otoplasty, Dr. Placik has helped countless children and adults alike reclaim their confidence and achieve a more normal ear appearance.
By the age of 4 or 5 the ears are considered fully developed and children are eligible for Ear Surgery. It is often considered best to have the procedure as young as possible to eliminate unnecessary teasing which can have adverse effects on children’s self-esteems even as they grow into adults.
