The construction of an auricle from autologous tissue is highly complex and demanding for the reconstructive surgeon. Depending on the characteristics of the underlying malformation or deformity, there are various surgical techniques available, which in specialized hands, promise regularly achievable attractive and stable results.
We have specialized in reconstructive and esthetic auricular surgery for many years and have reconstructed more than one thousand malformed or amputated auricles up to now.
After very successful previous courses within the last years we will present an overview on our clinical experience, let you observe our surgery and help you individually during our special carving and sculpturing workshop at this international course on auricular surgery. Beside our concepts and techniques in major auricular surgery we will also present a practical guide in the management of more minor and moderate abnormalities.
We hope you will enjoy the course, go home with new experiences and be able to use them in your daily work for your patients benefit right away.
