Hearing Reconstruction in Bakersfield
If a patient has experienced hearing loss due to an injury, disease or even natural development, we may recommend hearing reconstruction. Bakersfield Sinus Center offers this treatment to the residents of Porterville, Bakersfield, CA and surrounding cities.
What is Hearing Reconstruction?
Hearing reconstruction is a surgical procedure that is performed to restore hearing to patients who may have suffered from injury or improper development of the ears. When the ear canal becomes blocked or misshapen, hearing can become incredibly difficult. It often becomes difficult to distinguish different noises, or even hear them at all.
With hearing reconstruction at Bakersfield Sinus Center, we restore the shape and function to the eardrum and the ear canal in order to enhance a patient’s ability to hear.

What is the Hearing Reconstruction Treatment Like?
Hearing reconstruction is performed using either general or local anesthesia, depending on the patient’s preference and a number of other factors. Once anesthesia is administered, we will incorporate a number of surgical techniques to reshape the ear canal and address the other features of the ears. These may include surgical excision, laser technology or skin grafting.
The extent of the hearing reconstruction procedure will depend on the patient’s symptoms and exact condition. Prior to the treatment, we will perform extensive tests in order to diagnose the condition and develop a treatment plan that will be most effective.
What is the Hearing Reconstruction Recovery Like?
After hearing reconstruction, it can take time for the ears to fully adjust to the results. Patients may find that they are sensitive to loud noises in the weeks following their treatment. It is also common to experience general soreness or sensitivity in the ears for some time. However, aside from these effects, the recovery process from hearing reconstruction is quite uneventful. Patients are generally able to resume their normal activities within days of treatment.
What Results Can I Expect from Hearing Reconstruction?
Hearing reconstruction enhances a patient’s sense of hearing within days of the procedure. When hearing reconstruction is performed for a child, they often benefit from an improved hearing ability that enhances their development. Speech, hearing, concentration, and even temperament can improve as a result of hearing reconstruction.
