Ear Helix, Outer Rim of the Ear Surgery
The helix refers to the prominent outer rim of the ear. In a normal ear, it forms a “C” formation and has a gentle fold. There are many different deformities that can occur within the ear helix. Some conditions, such as Stahl’s ear, are marked by an over folded or pointed outer rim appearance while others involve only a remnant of the helix, as in microtia. Choosing Dr. Mark Mitchell Jones to perform reconstructive ear surgery for a malformed ear helix, means you can save your child psychological distress that often accompanies ear defects in school-aged children. Pointed ears, small ears, Dumbo ears and protruding ears can all be an unfortunate source of ridicule.
