Dr. Jones is renowned for his skill and artistry in repairing ear lobes that are torn, stretched, or drooping. Dr. Jones uses his specialties in cosmetic surgery to create natural looking and long lasting results.
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.
Many people find that they are unhappy with the size or shape of their ears. It may begin in early childhood when they are teased because their ears are larger than normal and stick out, or adults may find that they go to great lengths to cover their ears with hairstyles, hats, or other accessories. Fortunately, there is a cosmetic surgery available for those who wish to cosmetically alter their ears. Otoplasty, also known as ear plastic surgery, is a surgical technique used to pin the ears so that they do not protrude, reshape the ears, reduce the size of the ear or earlobe, and/or remove and recontour excess skin and cartilage. continue reading
Large or protruding ears can be a source of embarrassment and psychological distress for children as well as their parents. There is nothing worse than watching your child being bullied as a result of something he or she cannot help. However, this is exactly what happens to many children who are born with protruding or overly large ears. Having ears that stick out too much or are overly large can undermine a child’s self-confidence and eventually affect their emotional well-being. For this reason, many children, with the support of their parents, elect to have Otoplasty: a type of cosmetic surgery that is used to re-shape or enhance the appearance of ears. continue reading
Congenital ear deformities are a problem that can be difficult for both children and their parents. Approximately 5% of the population has some type of ear malformation. Of the different types of ear malformation, protruding ear and external ear Microtia (little ear) are the two most frequently encountered in plastic surgery. While protruding ear is commonly treated by many plastic surgeons around the country, external ear Microtia is corrected by only a small group of plastic and reconstructive surgeons.
