What is ear reconstruction?

Ear reconstruction refers to all operations used to treat ear deformities.

The goal of ear reconstruction is to create an ear shape that resembles a normal ear as accurately as possible, enough to not attract attention to itself. There are currently several methods used for ear reconstruction. These include using:

  • the patient’s own rib cartilage,
  • using an implant,
  • or using a prosthetic implant.
