Dr. Balaji expertly grafted the cartilage from her rib to reconstruct the ear framework & the entire ear cartilage was repositioned. The temporalis fascia from the side of her forehead was mobilized to reconstruct the ear musculature. For overlying skin coverage, the amount of skin required was accurately measured using lint & skin was grafted from her lower abdomen. Ear lobule was also corrected. The entire ear structure was raised and a splint was placed beneath the structure to prevent relapse. In the next & final stage of surgery, the ear will be reshaped to resemble the normal form.
