Representative Auricular Reconstruction Cases
- Secondary Auricular Reconstruction

Secondary auricular reconstruction is sought by patients who had auricular reconstruction previously at a different institution that resulted in unfavorable outcomes. Such cases have been rapidly increasing in the last 10 years. It is necessary to remove the cartilage framework from the primary auricular reconstruction, fabricate a new 3-D frame and graft it to its proper anatomical location. This surgery can be more meticulous and complicated at times compared to other reconstruction surgeries due to possible severance of the superficial temporal artery (STA) from the primary auricular reconstruction. However, by using Nagata method for secondary auricular reconstruction with careful surgery planning in advance, favorable and satisfactory results can be attained.
