At some point in your life, you’ve probably heard that our noses and ears never stop growing.
Then you might assume that this is the case after noticing a number of older adults with slightly wider faces than their younger counterparts.
Everyone is aware that a child’s body continues to develop after delivery. However, one body portion stays the same size throughout life. The size was when it was born.
See if you can identify the body part that doesn’t get bigger with age by making a wild guess!
Contrary to popular belief, the eyes do not begin to develop until later in life. On the other hand, the human eye grows by around a third in size.
The eyeball has a 16-millimeter diameter at birth but a 23-millimeter diameter by age three. A young child’s eyes grow to a diameter of about 24 millimeters as they get closer to puberty.
What part of the body doesn’t expand after giving birth?
The ossicular chain, a trio of microscopic bones in the middle ear, is the only portion of the human body that does not develop after birth.
According to Google. These are the tiniest and lightest bones in the human body. Each bone is the same size as a rice grain. The stapes is the shortest of the three, measuring only 2.8 millimeters (0.11 inches).
