Otoplasty Surgery

Dr. Mark Mitchell Jones is a double board certified surgeon in Atlanta who is qualified to perform successful otoplasty surgery for ear deformities. With his extensive experience and specialized training in both plastic surgery and otolaryngology (ENT), Dr. Jones can intricately reconstruct the external ear form and shape without compromising the function of the inner ear.

Otoplasty is a surgical procedure that is often used to correct congenital ear deformities, such as Big Ears or Dumbo Ears. It is a common surgery performed on thousands of patients in the United States every year. There are many different anatomical types of deformities, and Dr. Jones customizes his techniques to suit the individual. These procedures are usually performed when the patient is between five and six years old, just before entering first grade, but can be performed any time after that as well. Early correction can help your child avoid psychological distress, as Big Ear deformities are commonly teased among school-aged children.

Dr. Jones combines different otoplasty techniques in order to prevent reoccurence. It is equivalent to the “not putting all your eggs in one basket” so that redos are very rare. Dr. Jones once had a model from Denmark who was dissatisfied after 5 ear otoplasties in Europe. She was requesting corrective surgery of only 2 mm which he was able to accomplish for her.

Otoplasty is usually an outpatient procedure

In most cases, otoplasty is an outpatient procedure. Depending on the length and complexity of the procedure, patients either undergo general anesthesia ( “asleep” through the entire operation) or under local anesthesia (numbs similarly to the way a dentist frequently anesthetizes the teeth prior to dental work). Typically, children are sedated to eliminate anxiety, and adults can have their choice. A head bandage is worn for a week, followed by wearing a headband at night for a month. Dr. Jones will make sure you receive superior follow-up care and that the most natural, ideal results are achieved.

Please contact Dr. Jones to schedule a consultation or to learn more about otoplasty surgery. Dr. Jones will take the time to fully understand your specific concerns and expected results. We will explain the otoplasty surgery in detail as well as discuss expected costs.

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.
