Surgery in New Jersey

But not too young until the ears are fully grown. Normally, ears are almost fully grown by the age of four; so, consequently it is from that age and onwards that children with prominent ears can be considered for surgery. On a scale range, children between the ages of 4 and 14 are ideal to undergo an otoplasty surgery in New Jersey. The parents of these children should know about this information.

Ear surgery is generally intended to set prominent ears closer to the head or to reduce the size of large ears.

While it is recommendable for children to undergo otoplasty as early as possible, parents shouldn’t insist on it.

Having said everything above, ear surgery is no way disallowed for adults with protruding ears. Among older patients, normally there are no additional risks associated with ear surgery procedure.
