Macrotia Ear Surgery

Dr. Mark Mitchell Jones is your most trusted surgeon when it comes to ear birth defects such as macrotia. We understand the importance of creating natural results that restore balance and proportion to the ears and face. Dr. Jones is exceptionally qualified to treat both minor and complex macrotia cases. He is double board certified in plastic surgery and otolaryngology (ENT), which gives Dr. Jones the distinguished authority to reconstruct the shape and form of the external ear without compromising the workings of the inner ear. Correcting the enlarged ear appearance found in macrotia can profoundly benefit a patient’s appearance and self esteem.

What is Macrotia?

Macrotia is a congenital ear deformity that is marked by oversized or enlarged ears. This defect differs from protruding ears in that most macrotia patients have ears that are positioned at a normal distance from the head, yet their ears are genuinely too large in terms of measuring from the top to bottom and/or from the front to back. Patients who choose surgical correction often need otoplasty that targets the upper portion of the ear, as this is the primary area of concern in macrotia. Specifically, the scapha is often over developed, which creates a prominent or big ear appearance. The scapha is the curved, boat-like depression separating the helix (outer rim) and antihelix of the ear.

Dr. Jones uses progressive techniques and the latest developments in ear reconstruction to safely and effectively reduce the size of the upper ear, or scapha region, while preserving a natural looking ear shape and contour. We understand what an important decision it is to choose ear surgery for your child. You will find that Dr. Jones takes the time to fully understand your situation, as well as educate you on your child’s specific congenital ear malformation and present the treatment options that are available to you. Dr. Jones is not only a gentle and caring surgeon, but he is recognized in his field for delivering successful results in patients with the most challenging ear deformities.

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.
