Brazilian Institute of Ear Surgery is an Institution of Plastic and
Reconstructive Surgery for correction of the multiple congenital
deformities of the ear (from the birth) and also after traumatic
amputation, as well as of other segments of the body.
imperfections of the ears are a complex physical deformities and
their repair or reconstructions demand several surgical stages which
are constant challenge in Plastic Surgery. It is a reconstructive
procedure of the ear and it is not aesthetic operation.
congenital anomalies of the auricles are resulting of alterations in
the structures of the genes responsible for the development of the
ear, and other organs. They are not yet well known the embryonic
mechanisms that they determine the emergence of the imperfections of
the ear, but it is known that genes exist with specific functions to
promote the beginning, the formation and the growth of the organ
during the first 12 weeks of pregnancy. They are current deformities
of genetic alterations, but they are not hereditary transmission.
Therefore the parents should not fell guilty by the anomaly because
they happen by the way. It is very rare two brothers or sisters to
present similar imperfections.
