Ear surgery (otoplasty) is a procedure that changes the size, shape, or position of the ear(s). This surgery is done for both adults and children, and different types of otoplasty can be performed depending on the individual patient’s needs. Whether you’re looking for earlobe repair or another form of ear surgery, Chicago’s Beautify at AMS is equipped with board-certified plastic surgeons who have the knowledge, experience and skill to get the job done right.
How old does a patient have to be to undergo ear surgery?
When the ears are fully developed, otoplasty can be performed on any patient. The ears usually reach their full size by the time an individual is at the age of five, so usually beginning at this age, children with prominent ears can undergo otoplasty. Being one of the premier plastic surgery centers in Chicago, otoplasties are performed on children with the utmost care and comfort. We pride ourselves in treating your family like our own.
