Question : My son is three and he has very prominent ears. We live in Brampton and we’re wondering if this is too early to consider surgery.
Answer : Otoplasty can improve prominent ears by bringing them closer to the side of the head. The surgery can be performed on children age five and older as well as adults. Children usually tolerate the surgery and recovery well with good result. Give your son’s age, it may be a good idea to wait a year or two, though you can come in for a consult to discuss this further.
