Carlo Honrado, MD, FACS, is a board-certified facial plastic surgeon at the Los Angeles Ear Surgery Center of Excellence, a department of La Peer Health Systems. In this niche outpatient department, Dr. Honrado and his world-renowned team of plastic surgeons and otolaryngologists specialize in the treatment of microtia using the newest techniques available.
“In our practice, we understand the sensitivity involved in treating this condition,” said Dr. Honrado, who is one of the few surgeons to be board certified in both plastic and internal head and neck surgery. “Our mission is to help improve the lives of children with microtia, along with their families, through our new, cutting-edge surgical techniques.”
The top surgeons at the Ear Surgery Center of Excellence now offer several different types of procedures for treating microtia, including synthetic reconstruction (which involves the implantation of a prosthetic ear) and autologous reconstruction (which uses cartilage from another part of the body to reform the ear). Dr. Honrado and his team can determine which method of treatment is best, depending on the specific type and severity of microtia.
In addition to the treatment of microtia, Dr. Honrado and his team are excited to offer new procedures for otoplasty, which corrects protruding or misshapen ears, and keloid removal. All of the procedures performed at the Ear Surgery Center of Excellence can be completed on an outpatient basis, in which patients return home the same day they undergo surgery, and the minimally invasive techniques used cause minimal scarring and recovery time.
“We pride ourselves on offering the best possible care for our microtia patients, personalizing each patient’s experience to fit her needs and specific condition,” said Dr. Honrado. “It brings our team joy to help our patients feel better about themselves and experience higher self-esteem.”
Dr. Carlo Honrado is double board-certified by the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (ABFPRS) and the American Board of Otolaryngology (ABOTO). Dr. Honrado specializes in facial aesthetic surgery, including the treatment of microtia and other facial deformities.
After attending the renowned Johns Hopkins University, Dr. Honrado earned his medical degree from the State University of New York, Health and Science Center in Brooklyn. He completed his residency in Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery at New York Presbyterian Hospital and continued on to fellowship training in facial plastic surgery at the prestigious University of Washington in Seattle. Over many years of practice, Dr. Honrado has published over 20 articles and book chapters and is a frequent speaker at conferences both nationally and internationally.
