The position of the ears protruding from the sides of the head put them at risk of trauma injuries. Ears are made primarily of cartilage, which can be torn or damaged with trauma. Sports, car wrecks, motorcycle accidents and other events can cause damage to the ears, changing their shape and appearance. Our cosmetic surgery team at LM Medical NYC in Manhattan offers ear trauma plastic surgery for ear reconstruction and reshaping.

Animal attacks, vehicle accidents, violence and sports injuries can all be responsible for damaging the ears and impacting their appearance. The damage can be a simple tear, like earrings tearing through the earlobe, or as extensive as losing most of the outer ear. Cartilage heals differently than muscle or other types of tissue, as it does not regenerate cells in the same manner. To repair damage or replace lost ear tissue, complex reconstruction plastic surgery may be required.

Ear Reconstruction Plastic Surgery

When portions of an ear must be replaced after trauma, cartilage grafting may be required. Dr. Lesley Rabach is a top facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon with a double board certification in both facial plastic surgery and otolaryngology-head and neck surgery. Her expertise includes harvesting cartilage from other areas in the body to graft to the damaged ear to reshape and reconstruct the natural shape of the ear.

Damage to the ears from trauma can be devastating, but there are options to restore a natural ear appearance. If you have an ear that has been damaged by trauma, contact us at LM Medical NYC in Greenwich Village to schedule a private consultation with renowned facial surgeon Dr. Lesley, our experienced facial plastic surgeon. We offer advanced options in ear trauma surgery to repair and reconstruct these complex features.

I’ve been visiting LM medical for 4 years. The staff is always welcoming. The location is beautiful and modern. Dr. Morgan and Dr. Lesley are amazing physicians. They are very personable and genuine. They are open to questions and addressed all of my concerns. I have been more then pleased with my experience with LM Medical and I highly recommend this office.

Dr. Morgan Rabach and her staff provide top tier care and excellent service. Dr. Rabach is well-versed in the latest research. She made lots of time to discuss my dermatological history (what’s worked, what hasn’t worked, what hasn’t been tried) and all the available treatments to find the best path forward. She didn’t settle - pushing to make sure I got the best results possible. Would recommend without any reservations!

Toni D.

I have been seeing both Dr. Lesley & Dr. Morgan now for almost about three years now. Each time is better than the last. I trust them for natural results & they always deliver. What I value most is that they are never pushy! Always open, honest, and they are just overall good people.

Dr Morgan and her staff are very warm and efficient professionals. She provided me with straightforward answers on three different concerns and more importantly, found the adequate treatment for me right away. A well staffed and organized team! Highly recommended.

Emily B.

The staff are incredibly friendly and so helpful. The wait times are very short, the space is clean and modern, and they're very quick to respond to questions over the phone or email. I needed a detailed receipt for my insurance and they gave me two different versions until my insurance was satisfied. The doctors are friendly, laid back, and really listen which is awesome. Would highly recommend!!
