Expert correction of microtia done at our hospital

Microtia is a congenital malformation of variable severity of the external ear. Correction of this deformity is through reconstruction surgery. Dr SM Balaji is an expert at microtia correction. This staged procedure gives the best results for microtia correction.

Stage 2 microtia correction after successful stage 1 microtia surgery

The patient is now 14 years old. He has already undergone stage 1 costal cartilage placement under the skin. This had recreated the form of the left pinna. Stage 2 surgery involves lifting up the reconstructed left pinna.

This lies flat against the side of the head after the stage 1 surgery. His left ear lobe was also deformed with skin tags. This too needed corrective surgery. He presents now for stage 2 surgery.

Lifting up of reconstructed external ear from side of head

Under general anesthesia, an incision was first made around the reconstructed pinna. This was then lifted up and stabilized in position with sutures. Attention was then turned to the deformed ear lobe. A skin incision was first made in the ear lobe and adapted to give normal form to the deformed lobe. Sutures were then used to close the incision.

The patient expressed his happiness at the results before discharge from the hospital.
