Ear Reconstruction Surgery
For patients who have suffered trauma to the ear, possess a deformity, or have cancer affecting the area requiring ablation, ear reconstruction surgery may be a necessary procedure. To treat congenitally deformed ears, various types of medical procedures are required. A new ear may be created from the patient’s tissue, often from cartilage harvested from the ribcage.
This is a fully customized procedure and requires exceptional skills and knowledge of reconstructive surgical techniques. We offer our assistance to parents who have children who require a reconstructive procedure for the ears or other face or body area.

Benefits of Ear Surgery
While there are aesthetic reasons to choose to undergo ear surgery, many people feel embarrassed, inhibited, or introverted about the size and shape of their ears. The benefits of repairing ear structure go far beyond finally having ears that look natural and lie against the head in a pleasing way. Children suffer teasing in school and experience emotional distress that any parent wants to help them avoid. Whether child or adult, we care for our patients and help them achieve the confidence in body image that is so important to a happy life.
