As an elite microtia repair specialist, he is able to correct all types of ear helix deformities with the gentle precision and expertise you deserve.

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.

Dr. Jones takes extra measures to ensure parents are well informed of their child’s ear deformities, as well as the specific treatment options that are available. If your child has ear helix abnormalities due to microtia, you can trust that you are in the best hands with Dr. Jones. He is a renowned microtia repair specialist who is recognized for his innovative methods and proven rib graft technique results.

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.
