Cauliflower ear is a result of blunt trauma to the ear, often repeatedly during contact sports. Ear trauma can occur as a result of a car accident, fall, or other injury. While not all ear trauma results in the condition “cauliflower ear,” this can be a direct result from trauma to the head region. The ears are often more susceptible to injury during accidents because of their projection from the head. In some cases, the ear(s) can be severely damaged or even lost, resulting in the need for reconstruction and restoration. Dr. Mark Mitchell Jones of Atlanta Plastic Surgery Specialists is recognized as a national leader when it comes to ear reconstructive surgery, and he has performed over 500 ear surgery procedures.
