Hello lakerjudy, I’d like to add the following to my comments on the 31st of December, 2013: The risks for children are only minimal if the otoplasty is carried out with the new, minimally invasive stitch method. However, if the otoplasty is carried out with a traditional method, the risks are greater and more numerous. You can read about the risks of both methods in the internet.

There is no operation without risk, but these are minimal with otoplasty with children.

However, like every surgical procedure, cosmetic ear surgery involves risks. The chances of experiencing complications during this treatment, or as a result of it, are usually minimal. However, it is important to have an understanding of the problems that occur, and to discuss them with your surgeon before committing to otoplasty.

of course there are! but ive read that there are two types of otoplaty for children-- for 6 months and younger, its called ear splitting and for 6 months older, I think that they do the normal otoplasty procedure. But don't take my word for it, research on the Internet and ask your surgeon once you found one, ok?
