Ears that project significantly can disrupt overall facial harmony, resulting in embarrassment or hindering self-confidence in adults and children. Surgical revision of the ear, also known as otoplasty, improves the angle and appearance of protruding ears.

Dr. Burke uses up-to-date techniques for her patients from Barrington, Arlington Heights, Schaumburg, Crystal Lake, and Algonquin that hide the incisions behind or inside the ear to create a natural, balanced appearance.

“Dr. Burke and her staff exceeded my expectations. After getting a few opinions, I realized Dr. Burke wasn’t the least expensive option but was the most accurate, thorough, caring and trustworthy of candidates. Her expertise comforted not only myself, but the most critical of individuals, my mother.”

Recovery from Ear Surgery

Recovery depends on the extent of your ear surgery and any accompanying procedures. You may engage in light activity the day after your surgery; a return to more normal activity may take 1-2 weeks. Your appearance will gradually refine over the following 4-6 weeks. Results from otoplasty are long lasting.
