Ear Reconstruction Surgery
Due to the protrusion of the ear, it can be vulnerable to trauma and injury. Car accidents, burns and other trauma can damage the cartilage of the outer ear, impacting the appearance. The ear is unique in its form and requires artistic and surgical talent to repair and restore its appearance. Dr. John Anastasatos is a top plastic surgeon who offers ear reconstruction surgery at Los Angeles Plastic Surgery in Beverly Hills, CA.
The outer ear is completely made from cartilage, skin and fatty tissue with no bone. This makes it pliable, but it can also be easily damaged. Burns, lacerations and impact to the ear can change the shape and formation of the outer ear. In severe cases, some or most of the cartilage can be destroyed, leaving the victim with only a portion of their ear.
Ear Trauma Repair
Ear reconstructive surgery is used to reform existing cartilage to repair damage or add new cartilage to reshape the ear. Many severe ear reconstructions require cartilage, skin and tissue grafts, which can be harvested from other areas of the body and used to restore the shape and structure of the ear. The ear is one of the more difficult features to cosmetically reconstruct, due to its unique shape and design. Dr. Anastasatos has decades of experience and expertise as a plastic surgeon, using his extensive knowledge and artistic skill to repair and reconstruct damaged ears for his patients.
A damaged ear can impact a person’s self-confidence in their appearance. If you have suffered an accident that caused ear trauma, ear reconstruction surgery may be the best option to restore a normal appearance to your ear.
