Ears are us

Jose is a 12 year old who was born with both ears only partially formed. One of the procedures that plastic surgeons do is to take cartiledge from the rib and form it into the framework of the ear. We were able to do this for Jose today.

His left ear before the operation.

The rib after forming it into the framework.

At the finish of this stage. It will take two more operations to complete the reconstruction.
