Reconstructing auricular deformities for bilateral microtia is a demanding challenge especially after failed autologous reconstruction. This case report presents a novel application of virtual surgical planning, computer-assisted design, and intraoperative surgical navigation to preplan and execute placement of custom-tailored silicone auricular prostheses and titanium osseointegrated implants for a bone-anchored hearing aid system in a patient with Treacher Collins syndrome in whom autologous reconstruction had previously failed. Through a collaborative approach between the reconstructive surgeon and anaplastologist, the implementation of advanced digital technologies may offer a superior esthetic and functional outcome to patients with previously failed reconstruction.
