The best treatment for babies with scoop ears is applying an elastic bandage to their ears under the supervision of a doctor for 2-3 months after birth. When an application is made in this way, it usually succeeds and no surgery is required.
If this is not done, the best treatment time is that the child undergoing an operation around the age of 6 years before starting school. Since ear development is around 4-5 years of age, there is no drawback in children being 6 years old.
Depending on personal circumstances and family preference, surgery may be performed in later years, but it will be much better to have surgery before starting school, as it may become a mockery among children in primary and secondary school years. Therefore, surgery can be performed at any age with the completion of 5 years of age.
