Pediatric Otoplasty

Dr. Kotis is proud to perform pediatric otoplasty at his Chicago location.

Many children are born with misshapen ears due to birth defects and hereditary causes. In some cases, the ear cartilage is missing in certain areas; in others the ears protrude too far from the head. When this occurs, Dr. Kotis will perform pediatric otoplasty under general anesthesia to ensure the child’s safety.

Once a child is four-years-old, their ears are nearly fully grown. It is at that time that ear pinning or ear surgery in Chicago offers the most benefits. By addressing the aesthetic issue early, the child can achieve a discreet appearance and prevent bullying and teasing by peers.

What Are Some Reasons For Aesthetic Otoplasty?

There are a variety of reasons why adult ears may be considered unattractive.

They include ears that:

  • Are disproportionately sized

  • Protrude too far from the head

  • Are extremely stretched from gauges or earrings

Aesthetic ear surgery in Chicago with Dr. Kotis is designed to correct all of these issues and more. The otoplasty surgery is done under local anesthesia for adults and involves creating a small incision in the back of the ear, completely hidden from view.

Through that opening, Dr. Kotis will reshape the cartilage according to your needs. If you require a more in-depth procedure, frontal ear incisions may be necessary as well. However, Dr. Kotis will conceal them within the natural folds of your ear so that they are very difficult to detect once healed.

Your Otoplasty Recovery

Immediately after ear surgery, your head will be wrapped gently in special bandages to promote healing. These bandages will be removed in several days, but you will need to continue to wear a soft headband that covers your ears and maintains their new position and shape throughout the recovery period.

Here are some additional guidelines to keep in mind after your procedure:

  • Avoid strenuous activity until your ears are completely healed.

  • Keep your head elevated to minimize swelling.

  • Avoid sleeping on your side as you recover.

  • Adults can return to work within a few days.

  • Must be committed to wearing an ear binder for 1-2 weeks
