Ear Trauma

HomeEar Trauma

The ear’s position and delicate nature make them prone to trauma. Ears are mostly cartilage and fatty tissue that can be easily damaged during an accident, causing trauma. Disfigured ears can be unattractive and embarrassing. People will often try to hide their ears under long hair, hats or other accessories. Plastic surgery can restore a natural shape and appearance to ears deformed by trauma.

Types of Ear Trauma

Ears are one of the most common features to be damaged due to trauma. The position and protrusion of the ear make them prone to catching on objects during accidents. Cartilage is also easily damaged. Types of ear trauma that commonly occur include:

  • Ripped or torn ear lobes due to earrings pulled through the lobes
  • Cauliflower or boxer ear, cartilage ear deformity from ongoing impact to the ear
  • Ripped or torn cartilage in the upper ear from auto or work accidents
  • Dog or animal attacks that affect the ear
  • Sports injuries

Misshapen ears due to trauma can be distracting. Experienced facial plastic surgeon Dr. Linkov offers options to restore a natural appearance to the ear, including reconstruction surgery to replace lost ear cartilage. Dr. Linkov uses cartilage grafting and shaping, along with other advanced plastic surgery techniques. He will create a new or reshaped ear that matches its counterpart and is balanced with the other facial features.

I had a torn ear lobe. His treatment was excellent. I had no problems and no pain after the stitching of my ear lobe. To me he did an excellent job on my ear lobe. I thank him very much for that. I recommend anyone to him for treatments.
