My daughter is seven years old and has ears that stick out from her face. She’s always being teased about her ears, and my husband and I are contemplating an ear pinning procedure for her. I heard that the younger someone is, the easier this type of surgery is. Could you please tell me if this is true or not?
Ear pinning, or Otoplasty, can be performed on adults and on children as early as 6-7 years old. It is believed, by 6-7 years of age, the ear is nearly fully developed and so it is safe to perform a cosmetic procedure on them.
