Just as we can with adults, children can also undergo plastic surgery on their ears since the ears will reach their final size at the age of 5-6. Making an incision behind the ear, we can change the shape and position of the ear. We can also reshape the earlobe. The art of ear reshaping lies in achieving results where the ear looks normal and natural, without visible scars or kinks.
