When an ear has been damaged by trauma, cancer or if it has been misshapen from a congenital defect, ear reconstruction is a specialized surgical technique to rebuild and repair it. From microtia repair to otoplasty and other ear defects, Dr. Mark Mitchell Jones is a leading authority in reconstruction of the ear, with unsurpassed skill and precision.
Microtia, translated as “tiny ear,” is an inborn condition where one or both of the outer ears are deformed or absent. John Hopkins Medicine explains that surgical repair of microtia might involve creating a new ear using a patient’s own tissue, or building a prosthetic ear.
For ears that are notably prominent, ear pinning places the ears closer to the head. This is a type of otoplasty, or elective cosmetic surgery. On the other hand, when an ear has been damaged following a traumatic accident or cancer surgery, ear defect repair is a type of plastic surgery designed to reestablish the form and function of the outer ear.
