Microtia Surgeon’s Qualifications


Dr. Mark Mitchell Jones is uniquely qualified for ear reconstruction with years of specialized training in both ENT (ear, nose, and throat) and plastic surgery, focusing on ear reconstruction:

  • ENT surgery specialist and associate staff member, further trained by the chief of otology at the Johns Hopkins Hospital, a world renowned center in ear surgery research and training
  • Plastic surgery resident at the Stanford University Medical Center, a national leader in ear reconstruction techniques at the time
  • Fulbright Scholar in Paris, learning the European state-of-the-art techniques in ear reconstruction from the leading French innovator in these methods
  • Associate of the California Ear Institute, a highly ranked center of excellence and a premier site for treatment in ear related disorders

Contribution to the Field

Dr. Jones has developed several improvements to the standard ear reconstruction methods. He launched the necessary background work to these significant enhancements by first studying and learning how the inside of the ear works, and only then focusing his studies and training on the middle and the outer ear. Most plastic surgeons working on the outer ears have only minimal training on the inside ear and its structures where the hearing takes place. In contrast, Dr. Jones spent ten years in ENT—or ear, nose, and throat—surgery training.


Dr. Jones began his ear studies with Dr. George Nager, the chief otologist, or a hearing doctor, at the Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore. Learning about the inside of the ear hearing aspects from the best allowed Dr. Jones to lay a firm foundation for later being able to reconstruct the outer ear optimizing the hearing part. Unlike most plastic surgeons not trained in the inside ear, Dr. Jones is comfortable working inside the ear and can therefore save the patient’s original ear remnants that connect to the middle and inner ear and optimize any hearing connections. This is a little known aspect, but a crucial differentiator in plastic surgeons that work on ears.


Once he had gained mastery of the inside ear, Dr. Jones obtained his plastic surgery, or outer ear, training at Stanford University. Stanford University was the national leader in ear reconstruction techniques at the time. While training at Stanford, Dr. Jones spent a year as a Fulbright Scholar in Paris, France, to learn the state-of-the-art techniques in Europe under Dr. Francoise Fermin, the French innovator in these methods. Once back in California, Dr. Jones joined Dr. Rodney Perkins (otologist) and Dr. Bert Brent (plastic surgeon) at the California Ear Institute to collaborate and perfect his ear surgery skills before moving to Atlanta.


This unique and extensive combination of plastic surgery (outer ear) and otology (inside ear) training has never been duplicated. It has allowed Dr. Jones to distinguish himself as an ear reconstruction authority who can integrate the outer ear reconstruction without compromising the workings of the inside ear. Dr. Jones has capitalized on his expertise by developing several improvements to the best ear reconstruction standards. These enhancements include the Integrated (Ear) Cartilage Graft (ICG), the Wrap Around Earlobe (WAE), Juxtaposition Ear (JE), and the Bespoke Ear (BE).

Dr. Jones is the BEST!!! The staff is also great too. They are always friendly and welcoming. I am so happy that I chose him. I had liposuction and a tummy tuck done. I am amazed at my new body. I chose him because of his experience and he is the best plastic surgeon in Atlanta, Ga. My surgery experience was great I love the no drain technique that he does. I feel confident and beautiful. And my new look is wonderful and I couldn't be happier. And it feels great to get compliments from my family and friends because they love my new look as well!!!

Why did I look sad when I was not? When I saw my “normal” facial expression in the mirror, it just looked worn out. I did not like it for I did not feel like that on the inside! Dr. Jones changed it! After Dr. Mark Mitchell Jones did my eye lid surgery, I feel great about seeing myself in the mirror again. None of that loopy, tired look anymore! My only regret: I should have done this earlier. Creams do nothing to remove the wrinkles and the sagging eyelids that accompany getting into my late 40s. I feel refreshed in the face, and it affects my inside every time I look in the mirror or see a photo of myself. Dr. Mark Mitchell Jones did a fabulous job. He did not go overboard, he did it just right. He had the expert touch from the beginning to the end. Trusting my doctor is most important to me, and if I do this surgery again in ten years, I will just let him decide what can be done to achieve a more refreshed, happier look. It pays to let experience bear. It is my face. No scars. No sagging eyelids. Even the wrinkles around my eyes went away. Thank you, Dr. Jones and your wonderful staff.

The BEST decision I have ever made! Dr. Jones' bedside manner is remarkable, his staff is caring and made me feel individualized. I didn't want a factory line breast augmentation, so I researched surgeons and Jones stood out above the rest due to his expertise, study, knowledge, and specialized techniques. And that is what I wanted when I came to my body. My desired results were achieved with my health being priority. Surgery and recovery went without a hitch. Friends and family, some who have had the same procedure themselves, call his work exceptional!!

First I want to say what a great group of assistants Dr.Jones has working for him. They are professional, efficient and organized. All of them are nice and will work closely with your schedule. As for Dr. Mark Jones you can find a better doctor he is "Magical" when it comes to surgery. I'm in my third stage of microtia and every surgery he's calm and reassuring that everything will turn out. He does what he says he going to do, and accurate on what the turnout will be. If I had to go through this again I wouldn't go to anyone else. Thank you Dr. Mark Jones.
