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.

Plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Linkov can create a personalized plan to restore the shape and appearance of injured ears with his cutting-edge plastic surgery techniques.

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.

If you have experienced ear trauma that has left permanent damage to your appearance, contact our team at City Facial Plastics today. We can schedule a consultation with Dr. Linkov to discuss your options to restore a natural, improved appearance to your damaged ear.

Highly recommend! Dr. Gary helped me with painful lip scar tissue after an accidental fall a year earlier. I’ve known Gary for 20 years and since the first day knowing him he’s grown as a medical professional with an innate sense of detail and kind demeanor. Excellent client follow up and post treatment care.

Dr. Gary is a fantastic NYC plastic surgeon who treats me and to whom I would recommend all my friends and family. He has a very conservative approach to fillers and I was extremely impressed with the way he filled my nasolabial lines that had been bothering me for years. It was painless, and I did not experience any bruising at all. Getting this done gave me so much confidence - I wish I worked with him years ago!

Rachel G.

Wow is all I can say! Fantastic doctor that gives you an extremely pleasant, professional, and realistic experience. Would highly recommend and give 6 stars if I could.
