Ear Reconstruction Surgery


You may look just like everyone else

Plastic surgery is not only about beauty improvements. In some cases, certain body parts are reconstructed from scratch to make them look just normal. An ear reconstruction surgery is one of such procedures. An ear, underdeveloped or malformed during the foetal development period or lost through trauma, can be completely reconstructed. This is a challenging procedure which requires high precision and extensive surgical experience. Therefore, it is advisable to choose a clinic with a proven track record such as ours where surgical results speak for themselves.

Ear reconstruction surgeries are performed in patients older than 6 years so that there is sufficient cartilage available for the graft. The procedure is performed in two phases.

  • First, cartilage is harvested from the patient’s rib and used to carve and form an ear structure, which is sewn underneath the skin at the site of the ear.
  • After 6 months, a developed ear is separated from the skull through the skin graft.
Both phases are performed under a general anaesthesia, therefore each time one day stay at the clinic is required.
