Dr. Balaji employed the Limberg’s flap to successfully reconstruct the ear lobule. Followed which stage wise complete ear lobe reconstruction done using costochondral rib graft. Costal cartilage was harvested; external framework was carved and tunneled to reconstruct the external ear.
After suction, the skin was seen getting adhered to the cartilage. This was followed by the second-stage surgery to elevate the newly formed ear from the side of the head using split skin graft obtained from right thigh region. Thus, entire shape and size of the ear was reconstructed with enhanced appearance without much visible scars.
