Looking for ear surgery in Chicago Illinois? As
is the case with many facial characteristics,
the size and shape of one's ears is most
often a familial trait. Children with protruding
ears, for example, will often see that
same characteristic in their parents' and
grandparents' ears. Surgical correction
of this deformity can be performed with
great success as early as the fourth year.
By such time, the ear has reached almost
adult size, so there will be little subsequent
change. Contact Chicago plastic surgeon Dr. Tresley about ear surgery.
Oak Brook plastic surgeon Dr. Tresley performs this procedure by
repositioning flexible cartilage structures.
Although there are several variations of deformity
in the case of protruding ears, the surgical
objectives remain consistent - that is
to provide a normal configuration of the
ear. The surgeon places his incisions behind
the ear where the scar will be least visible.
The procedure can be performed under local or general anesthesia in a surgi-center in the Chicago area on an outpatient basis.
