My 8 years old daughter is suffering from Microtia, to whom should i consult ?
Hi.. My daughter is 8 yrs and she is suffering from Microtia (right ear lobe not developed since birth ). The X-ray of the ear indicates the ear canal developed from inside. Please help in suggesting the doctor who can cure it. (Maybe ENT+Cosmetic surgeon) Thank you..
You can visit a good plastic surgeon who can perform this surgery. Also, depending upon the condition they can also insert a prosthesis with a matching color and contour or reconstruct the ear pinna with the cartilage.
