Ear deformities may result from skin cancer or trauma, or they may be life-long. A significant loss of ear cartilage requires complex reconstruction. Our facial plastic and reconstructive surgeons work closely with dermatologists in the treatment of this disease. Often, Mohs micrographic surgery is recommended in order to remove the skin cancer accurately, leaving behind as much normal skin as possible. Our facial plastic surgeons will perform a reconstruction after dermatology has completed Mohs surgery to remove the skin cancer.
