Top Microtia & Otoplasty Surgeon In The USA

Microtia and otoplasty are two different procedures that require a similar surgical approach. In both cases, the surgeon will create an ear framework which is placed under the skin of the person's scalp. This framework can be made out of solid silicone cartilage (a solid mold), or soft tissue grafts (living tissue). Once the framework is created, the surgeon will then sculpt it and modify it to look like an ear. Once this is done, the rest of the skin from the patient's forehead and scalp can be used to cover up the framework. The end result is a fully-formed ear that matches the other one!


Dr. Grant A. Fairbanks has been performing both of these surgeries for X years. He has become one of the most sought after specialists for microtia and otoplasty surgery in the US.

Microtia (Small Ear)

Microtia is a birth defect where a child is born with a small, malformed ear. Though the cause of microtia and how to prevent it from occurring is unknown, we are able to construct an ear using a child’s own living tissue. This article describes microtia and microtia treatments in detail and contains a list of before and after pictures of both children and adults.

Otoplasty (Ear Pinning)

Protruding ears that stick out prominently from the head are considered to be less-than-attractive in our society. Children with this deformity can have a difficult time as they become the object of peer ridicule. This article discusses the surgical options available to correct this deformity.
