Whether you associate your ears with your facial appearance or not, the ears play a vital role in the symmetry and overall appearance of the face. The earlobes are prone to easily tearing and stretching because they do not have cartilage to help them keep their shape.

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.

While the ears are not a typical source of attention when it comes to the facial appearance, damage to the earlobe can cause a distraction and an imbalance to the face.

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.

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
If you have been in an accident that resulted in trauma to your ear or if you have a child who has suffered trauma to the ear, you are not alone. Unfortunately, parts of the ear are frequently injured. This is due, in part, to the ear’s exposure from its projection from the head. In more serious cases of ear trauma, the entire ear or parts of the ear may be severely damaged or even lost. Fortunately, most of this damage can be corrected in the hands of a skilled and experienced reconstructive surgeon. However, this type of reconstructive ear surgery requires a level of expertise that is shared by a small number of surgeons. continue reading
