• Ear Surgery

    Otoplasty improves the shape, position or proportion of the ear. It can correct a defect in the ear structure that is present at birth, or it can treat misshapen ears caused by injury.

    Microtia is a congenital deformity where the external ear is underdeveloped. A completely undeveloped ear is referred to as anotia. he underdeveloped or missing ear can be constructed using rib cartilage. his surgery involves sculpting the patient's own rib cartilage into the form of an ear. Because the cartilage is the patient's own living tissue, the reconstructed ear continues to grow as the child does. In order to be sure that the rib cage is large enough to provide the necessary donor tissue, surgeons wait until the patient is at least 6 years of age. This surgery can take up to four stages depending on the surgeon's preferred method.
