Microtia refers to the small ears because of the underdeveloped or missing pinna (outer ear). It can be corrected by autologous ear reconstruction surgery using rib cartilage in individuals above 6 to 10 years of age or when sufficient rib cartilage is present and the other ear has attained its normal adult size. In this surgery, the patient’s rib cartilage is taken out and used to sculpt out a 3-D framework that resembles a normal ear in appearance. The newly created ear is then placed under the skin to match with the other ear. International patients can avail of microtia surgery benefits in India at The microtia Trust.
