AUTOLOGOUS EAR RECONSTRUCTION

IS IT POSSIBLE IN

ADULT?

We know that there are many adults who were born with microtia but could not have ear reconstruction done in their childhood due to circumstances. If you are an adult born with microtia, we have good news for you: all the information given about ear reconstruction in children with microtia also applies to you, which means that it is possible for us to make a new ear with two-stage surgery using your own tissues.

However, for some individuals, hardening and ossification of the rib cartilages may occur depending on age, which may prevent us from performing auricular reconstruction with your own tissues. In short, if your rib cartilage has not lost its elasticity, ear reconstruction is possible with your own tissues, regardless of your age.

Therefore, we determine whether it will be possible to build an auricle with patient's own cartilage in adult patients by conducting an examination called computed tomography.
