Ear Reconstruction Print E-mail

Ears that are missing parts or are deformed due to birth defects, trauma or previous surgery may be corrected using cartilage grafts from the rib or the other ear. This procedure often requires 2 separate operations which are separated by several months. In Australia it is recommended that for children with birth defects such as microtia, it is often best to wait until the age of 10 years before performing the surgery.
