Auricular or ear cancer
Although rare, cancer may occur in any of the three parts of the ear: outer, middle or inner. Although required treatment may damage tissue, we can use various techniques to restore a natural appearance.
Present from birth, this deformity is when the external ear, or pinna, is underdeveloped. If it is undeveloped altogether, this is called anotia. These conditions may also be referred to as microtia-anotia and may occur on only one or both sides.
Many adults have disliked how their ears stick out since they were children. We can essentially “pin back” ears to improve both looks and confidence.
Whether due to an accident or injury or caused by jewelry, we can repair torn earlobes while often maintaining a patient’s ability to wear jewelry in the future.
Trauma to ears
Injury from an accident or required medical treatment may cause ear deformities. Our goal is always to return an ear to as close to its natural appearance as possible while also matching the look of the opposite ear.
