In brief: Depends

Typically an ascending aortic aneurysm is repaired after it becomes between 5.
0 to 5.5 cm in size, depending on other factors such as age, how quickly it is expanding, and the presence of other conditions such as marfan's disease.

In brief: Ascending aorta

4cm for the ascending aorta is upper limits of normal.
If the ascending aorta becomes larger than 5 cm or if you develop aortic regurgitation you may need surgery.
