Ear Trauma Repair and Reconstruction in New York

The human ear, delicate and complex, is a prominent feature that plays a crucial role in our lives. This organ is primarily for hearing but also frames our facial aesthetics.

Unfortunately, their protruding position makes ears susceptible to injury and trauma, leading to disfigurement. Trauma to the ears can vary in severity, from a torn earlobe caused by a simple earring mishap to more complex injuries resulting in a significant loss of ear tissue.

Dr. Joseph J. Rousso, MD, FACS, is a highly experienced facial plastic surgeon based in New York. He is at the forefront of ear trauma repair and reconstruction, offering world-class results for those in need.

The Complexity of Ear Reconstruction

Ears are primarily composed of cartilage, making them challenging to repair through plastic surgery. Repairing ear trauma requires a specialized skill set and training, and not all plastic surgeons are equipped to handle the intricacies of ear reconstruction.

Dr. Rousso is part of a select group of facial plastic surgeons with extensive ear reconstruction and otoplasty expertise, making him a sought-after specialist in this field.

Simple to Complex: Tailored Solutions

Ear trauma can range from relatively simple cases, like torn earlobes, to more complex situations where a significant portion of the ear is damaged or lost. The extent of repair and reconstruction needed depends on the severity of the injury.

In mild cases, Dr. Rousso can perform in-office procedures to correct the damage and restore the ear’s balanced appearance. However, in cases involving extensive trauma, complete reconstruction may be necessary to regain the ear’s natural appearance.

Complete Ear Reconstruction After Severe Trauma

Dr. Rousso may recommend a complete ear reconstruction if an ear has been severely mangled or lost due to trauma. The advanced procedure involves various techniques, such as rib cartilage grafting. This method utilizes the patient’s rib cartilage to form the foundation for the new ear.

For individuals who are not suitable candidates for rib cartilage grafting, ear reconstruction can be achieved using Medpor alloplastic implants. Dr. Rousso employs the latest medical technology and techniques to ensure that the repair or reconstruction results in a natural, balanced appearance.
