Otoplasty – Chicago Scars Ear Alteration Surgery
If your child’s ears are unusual in shape and/or size and they’ve been the subject of teasing, you may be considering corrective ear surgery, or otoplasty. This common procedure can allow a child to fit in, helping with their emotional growth.
Scarring from otoplasty surgery is very minimal and not at all obvious. When an incision is only necessary for the back of the ear, it’s quite well-hidden. If the front incision is required, the scar can still be hidden within a crease.
The artful concealment and blending of scars is a part of every plastic surgeon’s job. Dr. Otto Placik, a board-certified plastic surgeon, has years of experience and will help you meet your aesthetic goals. To set up an otoplasty appointment, contact us today.
