Is 8 years old too young for ear surgery? Question:
My 8-year-old son is constantly teased because of his large ears. He wants to have surgery but I feel that he’s too young and he’s still growing. What can I say to him to deter from wanting this?
Eight years old is not too young for an otoplasty. We often perform this procedure from age 6 and up as the ears are mostly grown by this time.
