Ear Reconstruction – The Bespoke Ear (BE)

Carving an ear from living cartilage is an unusually challenging surgical procedure. Why? First, the surgeon making the ear is having to do so with minimum amount of raw material (patient’s own rib cartilage) to carve out all the required pieces. Second, these pieces have to be sewn to form a firm, yet as thin as possible, three-dimensional ear structure. Finally, the time to construct the ear in the operating room is limited. Therefore, it takes an exceptional surgeon to be able to accomplish a natural-looking ear with those constraints.

To compensate for the time constraints or the skill required for design details and individual peculiarities, many ear surgeons apply the same ear-making procedure for each patient, standardizing the design. It saves time and reduces risks of not being able to handle the devils in the details. Dr. Jones; however, does not allow time constraints nor lack of skill to prevent him from custom-designing each and every ear. He never cuts corners during the operation. The optimal outcome for the patient is his primary concern. Dr. Jones’s exceptional training (we cannot find anyone else in the world with such training), magic hands, and ambition for a most natural outcome make him a leader in ear surgery.

While one can argue that microtia reconstruction lends itself to an assembly line approach in the same way that some surgeons approach nose reconstruction and breast augmentation; in reality, ears come in significant variations. If you compare your ear to a friend’s (non- family member) ear, you will see several distinctions; some are almost undetectable, whereas some are very noticeable, including the size. Dr. Jones acknowledges and spends the extra time in surgery and outside the surgery so that the patient receives a custom-tailored ear just for him or her, or as the English tailor would say: “A bespoke ear.” A bespoke is an old English tailors’ word meaning “made to special order.

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.

He answered all my questions and took any time necessary to explain everything to me about surgery options. He is friendly and professional and he and his staff made me feel at ease immediately. Surgery was a success and I am thrilled. I would recommend Dr. Mark Jones and his staff to anyone.
