Ear Trauma Plastic Surgery
The outside position of the ears makes them vulnerable to injury. Whether you are a boxer that has had multiple hits to your ears or someone who survived head trauma in a motorcycle accident, you may need ear plastic surgery. Not all plastic surgeons offer cosmetic or reconstructive surgery for the ears due to the complexity of these procedures. Dr. Stefan Shuaib is a highly respected facial plastic surgeon at Dallas Facial Plastic Surgery Center and offers ear trauma plastic surgery at our clinic in Irving, TX.
The ears are mostly made from cartilage and fatty tissue, which can be damaged easily. From earrings ripping through earlobes to burns and lacerations on the upper ear, many individuals suffer ear injuries. Extreme damage to the cartilage can require replacing the tissue with donor cartilage from another area of the body or other sources. In some cases, the entire outer ear may need to be reconstructed to replace mutilated ear tissue.
Ear Repair and Reconstruction
Dr. Shuaib has performed extensive facial reconstructive surgeries, including ear trauma repairs. He is well-known for his expertise in reshaping cartilage and surgical grafting to create natural-appearing results. Due to the complex shape of the ear, it requires an artistic eye and highly honed surgical skills to perform ear reconstruction and repair, which you can expect when you choose Dr. Shuaib for your ear trauma plastic surgery.
Damaged ears are more than just a cosmetic concern. Badly injured ears can impact hearing and other functions. Wearing sunglasses, eyeglasses, hearing aids, facial masks and other items can be difficult if the ears are misshapen from trauma. Ear reconstruction and repair surgery can achieve improved aesthetics and restore ear functionality.
