Permission to post the above surgical images has been granted by Dr. Arturo Bonilla, Founder of the Microtia Congenital Deformity Institute. Rib Graft surgery can be completed anywhere from 1 stage up to 7 stages depending on the surgeon you go to, if scar tissue is in the way, or other challenges such as a low hair line, etc… However, today Rig Graft is commonly performed in two to three surgeries depending on the surgical technique that is chosen.
