Surgery for Partial Ear Loss due to Trauma
As an elite microtia repair specialist, Dr. Jones understands the most effective and natural methods to reconstruct the ear after partial ear loss. When possible, Dr. Jones utilizes the time-tested and proven rib graft technique to restore portions of the ear. This technique uses a patient’s own natural tissues, which creates ideal results that are less susceptible to infection or rejection. It is common for Dr. Jones to use a combination of innovative techniques during partial ear loss surgery. He employs staged reconstructions for severe ear injuries because of the fragility of the ear tissues. In certain cases, this approach allows the ear being reconstructed to settle into its shape in stages, resulting in a more natural and balanced outcome.
