Ear Plastic Surgery is an adventure. Finding a surgeon with a spectrum of tools to deal with the many variations can be a challenge. Look for specific examples of that doctor's skills rebuilding that defect. This is like choosing an artist, not all surgeons have the same skills.

Otoplasty Of the Helix Rim of the Ear comes in many different forms depending on the defect. Deformity can be from trauma, cancer, or congenital (at birth). The trick is to use remaining elements to sculpt a natural looking ear.

Hope this helps,
