Microtia is a congenital condition in which an infant is born is without external ears or with severe ear deformity. Microtia can affect one or both ears, and hearing may also be affected. Fortunately, the problem can be improved through reconstructive surgery. Surgery for microtia is a very delicate procedure that requires detailed knowledge of both facial plastic surgery and otolaryngology (head and neck surgery). Kansas City plastic surgeons J. David Kriet and Clinton D. Humphrey both bring their unique training and significant experience necessary to treat microtia. If your child was born with this condition, our doctors can help him or her achieve a more normal appearance, restoring your child’s confidence and improving their self esteem.
