Houston, Texas (PressExposure) April 17, 2012 -- Microtia is a congenital malformation where the pinna (portion of the ear that is visible), does not develop fully. Patients who need to restore the natural shape and size of congenitally malformed ears can get the treatment from Houston Plastic and Craniofacial Surgery, the office of Dr. Sean Boutros. Dr. Boutros is an experienced and board-certified plastic surgeon, who has had immense success in providing microtia treatment.
The plastic surgery center in Texas offers a customized solution for children who have ear deformity. With proper care, microtia is completely treatable. People with one microtic ear depend on the other ear for hearing. Ear infections can impede hearing and therefore should be taken seriously. To determine whether the patient is a right candidate for the surgery, a CT scan is usually recommended.
Here at this center, artificial materials are not used in ear reconstruction. At Houston Plastic and Craniofacial Surgery, Dr. Boutros' goal is to provide excellence in treatment along with compassionate care. The team includes board-certified anesthesiologists and other surgical experts. The procedure is performed in a hospital setting to ensure the best care and recovery for young patients. The operating suite is located inside the office. This convenience allows patients to have a one-on-one surgical care in the comfort of the office with which they are familiar.
