Ear Reconstruction Surgery
Ears come in all shapes and sizes, and just as with noses, breasts, and other parts of the body, many people are unhappy with how their ears look. Cosmetic ear reconstruction surgery requires special qualifications that take into consideration the aesthetic features and the natural functionality of the ears. Dr. Mark Mitchell Jones of Atlanta Plastic Surgery Specialists is a nationally renowned authority when it comes to ear reconstruction surgery. His first-class education and training has earned him the highest ranking across the country, and Dr. Jones is double board certified by The American Board of Plastic Surgery and the American Board of Otolaryngology (ear, nose, and throat: ENT).
Some people are born with a congenital ear deformity that leaves their ears asymmetrical, lopsided, or simply unattractive. Both males and females can suffer from congenital ear deformities. In some cases, men have a harder time dealing with deformed ears because they are less able to “hide” them. Women can grow out their hair and style their hair in ways to cover their ears to keep them hidden from view. However, it is less socially acceptable (especially in the corporate-professional realm) for men to have long hair. The ability to have corrective surgery to reconstruct the ears is a huge advantage to men and women who suffer from congenital ear deformities.
Trauma to the ears is another common reason why people seek ear reconstruction surgery. Sporting injuries, car accidents, hunting injuries, and other random occurrences are all causes of ear trauma. It is always helpful when trauma occurs for patients to bring in “before” pictures for Dr. Jones to see. When he can see how the ears were formed and how they were naturally placed on the side of the head, Dr. Jones can create a natural reconstruction to the ear(s) that is aesthetically pleasing.
