When an individual enters into the world of sports, injuries are an accepted downside of competition. Most athletes expect to deal with sprains, strains and broken bones at some point during an active career. What most are not prepared for is scarring of the face and deformity of the ears.

Facial injuries are less likely to occur than bone injuries in athleticism, unless you enter into the world of combat sports. Football and rugby players may suffer from what is known as cauliflower ear, which is a deformity caused by repeated impact trauma to the ears.

Sports Retirement Plastic Surgery

Scar revision is possible for active athletes; however, it is not always recommended. Scar tissue can reopen very easily with trauma, especially in sports such as boxing or MMA. Once retired, many fighters opt for scar revision to correct highly visible imperfections impacting their facial features.

Ear deformities or damage is also reparable after hanging up the proverbial boots or gloves. The injuries suffered to the ears in sports can cause splits, protrusion or other structural issues. Retirement is a good time to address these problems, as it is unlikely that any further damage will occur.

Karmita Avila

I haven't the opportunity to meet the doctor yet, I have an appointment. I was referred by an ENT doctor in NJ, Dr. Douglas Leventhal, nice, young, excellent bed manners. Unfortunately he does not reconstruction nasal perforation, but he was very interested in helping me, and he referred me to a colleague in NY, and asked me wait a call from them, otherwise to call him back if they didn't contact me. Thanks GOD, they are very efficient and received, today two calls , I finally got to talk to Evelyn, very kind, and patient, gave me the appointment, I hope that my present health problem due to bad medical practice years ago, Dr. Rossenberg, can reconstruct my septum. I thank you from deep of my heart.
