How can my son’s small ear lobe be managed?
Q: My 30 days child has a small left ear lobe. The upper part of the external ear is folded downwards and I can see a small hole and can assume that the canal is present. I understand that the ear reconstruction surgery can be done only at the age of 6-7 years. Please advise.
A:I understand your concern that your child with a smaller ear lobe in the left side needs to have the best attention in the world. This surgery will have to be done in stages. After each stage, several weeks would be necessary before the next stage is taken up. Thus, depending upon the steps individually required for your baby, this reconstruction might take a few years to complete. A lot of innovations are taking place in this field. Moreover, this portal is meant for general queries. This portal can never even imagine taking the place of a personal clinical examination and advice.
