Severe ear deformity after heamatoma of ears...

severe ear deformity after heamatoma of ears causing cartilage overlap and buckling up off ear and fibro cartilage formation causing very thick ears. 2 further ops to give slight improvement. wish i read this beforehand .i never realised the risks involved as i though it was a sraightforward operation. cartilage needs to stay in contact with the skin to get its nutrients and stay alive if this is interupted with blood inbetween skin and cartilage death of cartilage results.wish i read this beforehand http://www.egms.de/static/en/journals/cto/2008-6/cto000037.shtml
