My son is a year old. He was born with an ear defect which caused the tops of his ears to have a pointed appearance. It isn’t dangerous to his health, but we feel that it will make him suffer a lot of unkind judgment later on from others. When he’s old enough, is it possible to fix his pointy ears with an otoplasty?
You can fix pointed ears with an otoplasty. It is best to wait until your child is around 5 or 6 years old. Their ears will have stopped growing by then and they will be entering into more social situations by attending school.
