Isaac's Microtia Before & After

Isaac as born with several congenital birth defects, one of them is Microtia. Microtia is an ear deformity that occurs once in every 6,000 to 12,000 births.Children with microtia and atresia usually have severe hearing loss on the affected ear.Although there is a hearing loss in children with microtia, the inner ears on both sides are usually normal. However, Isaac's left ear had no hearing when he was born and it improved to hearing a little less than normal range. He also was missing the Pinea on his left ear and his ear canal is extremely narrow. Dr. Muntz reconstructed a new pinea with all of the curves. Sorry if this last photo is so graphic, it is important to see the beginning stages, so the miracle of plastic surgery can be better understood later.
