The year 2016, world is civilized and growing at a faster rate. Savithri , a 23 yr old girl in small town of north Karnataka , had a big problem in life. The parents were anxious, as they wanted to get her married. Few proposals were coming in, but there was hindrance, Savithri did not have ear lobule. Savithri's father was farmer and mother was a maid. As a child, savithri was happy go, joyous kid, one bad day was awaiting in her life. The girl had infection of the left ear lobule. The parents being poor neglected the ear infection that costed the girl her ear lobule. Not knowing about the consequences, time flew, she was 18 yrs of age. Savithri was in college when her friends started getting married. Parents were more anxious as no alliances were getting materialized. Worried parents took savithri to doctors, nobody could give a correct solution. They were advised to proceed to Bangalore for further management.
One of the persons where savithri’s mother worked, suggested about the availability about the reconstructive surgery in Gulbarga. Mother was very happy , it was a “blessing in disguise” for her. She consulted the Reconstructive Surgeon. Savithri and her parents were explained about reconstructive procedure and its recovery. A date for surgery was fixed. The reconstructive surgery with cosmetic gains in mind was planned and executed for natural looking lobule. The surgery was performed under local anaesthesia and went well with almost no pain. Savithri had a smooth recovery. After one month of proper therapy , ear appeared normal. The newer proposals started coming. A guy working for a company accepted savithri as a life partner and now they lead a happy life together.
This is a true patient story and a touching experience of my surgical career.
