If you are in need of ear trauma surgery and looking for an experienced ear plastic surgeon in the Bethesda area, contact Maia Plastic Surgery in Chevy Chase, MD. The position, structure and protrusion of the ears can make them vulnerable to injury and trauma. Accidents and injuries involving the head can often impact the ears, causing substantial damage to the outer ear structure. While most damage to the ear cartilage and fatty tissue is cosmetic and does not affect hearing, it can impact the person’s appearance. Dr. Munique Maia of Maia Plastic Surgery is a fellowship trained and board certified plastic surgeon who can perform ear trauma surgery at our clinic in the Bethesda, MD, area.

The cartilage and tissue in the outer ear can be easily mutilated in a head trauma accident. Motorcycle and auto accidents are common causes of outer ear damage, as well as fire and chemical accidents. Severe accidents may remove some or all of the outer ear, leaving the victim with a noticeable imbalance and functional issues. It is also difficult to wear glasses or a hearing aid without a stable outer ear. Ear trauma and reconstruction plastic surgery can reform and reshape the ear for both cosmetic and functional purposes.

Ear Reconstruction Plastic Surgery

When some or all the cartilage and fatty tissue from the ear are damaged, there are a few options available. There are prosthetic ears that can be attached for cosmetic purposes to replace the outer ear if it is damaged or lost in an accident. Another option is ear reconstruction plastic surgery using cartilage, tissue and skin grafts to rebuild a new ear from the patient’s own tissue. Dr. Maia can discuss all the incredible options available for those who are seeking ear trauma cosmetic surgery.

Substantial ear damage from trauma can have a dramatic impact on your appearance and ear function. If you want to explore ear trauma plastic or reconstruction surgery, contact us at Maia Plastic Surgery in the Bethesda, MD, area. Call us today to schedule your appointment with Dr. Maia to discuss the ear trauma surgery options to reshape or restore your damaged ears.

Kerri L.

When I was diagnosed with breast cancer and had a consultation with Dr. Maia, not only was her expertise evident, her compassion shown through as she walked us through the process. Thankfully, I felt very comfortable trusting her as I underwent reconstruction surgery. I am very happy with the results and highly respect and recommend Dr. Maia.

Dr Maia truly loves what she does. She is invested in making you the version of yourself you want to be. She listens attentively to what you want and makes relevant suggestions. She did not try to introduce anything unnecessary into my treatment plan. The results I achieved during my first treatment keeps me coming back. Her staff is excellent and works to accommodate your schedule. I have recommended Dr. Maia several times and each time I get the same positive feedback.

Selecting a surgeon: After having two children and weight fluctuations over the years I was left with complete loss of volume in my breasts. I had four consultations with other surgeons but after comparing their photos to Dr Maia’s and meeting her in person, I knew she was my doctor. We talked about my lifestyle - being a mom and a professional, I didn’t want to be too big, but I’m curvy so I didn’t want to go too small for my frame either. She let me try on sizes and once I selected she agreed it was a good fit for my frame. Post op recovery: I was a smoker and had quit prior to surgery but she was very honest and adamant in telling me how important it was that I did not smoke. (I honestly needed the lecture and the transparency about what could happen if I did start smoking before surgery and post-op.) Because I was formerly a pretty heavy smoker, it did cause some issues after surgery with wound closing and she was SO diligent and on top of it seeing me once and week and squeezing me in for appointments between surgeries and patients. She prescribed different things to address the would closure issues before they really became a problem. Being able to have text message access to the office was great when I had questions and she even accommodated my schedule when I couldn’t be seen in person to send progress photos so that she could check on me. 3 months post op: I’m so happy with the results of my surgery and am so glad I waited to find the right doctor. She’s an artist! They look natural, fit my body shape and they haven’t even fully “dropped and fluffed” yet. Would highly recommend… comparing her patient photos to other surgeons will end your search. I feel so much better in my body thanks to Dr Maia.

This is my second time at Dr. Maia’s office and I am so pleased with my experience here. The staff is so friendly and caring. Dr. Maia is the best Dr in the DMV area, she knows exactly what she is doing and you will be happy with the results! I am so glad I found her! I recommend anyone who’s looking for a very personable doctor to come and see her! Thank you Dr. Maia & staff!
