This implant is 100 percent biocompatible.) ear reconstruction is a one- or two-step procedure that involves placing a porous polyethylene implant on an underdeveloped ear that allows the patient's tissue to grow into the material. 3 to 6 months after surgery, a second correction may be needed for minor corrections.
