BACKGROUND: Numerous otoplasty techniques have been described in the literature to correct prominent ears; however, few have focused on the complication rates. We reviewed our experience aiming to assess peri-operative care requirements and complication rates. METHOD: We conducted a retrospective review of 207 otoplasty procedures performed in 119 patients over a 5-year period (2009-2014) at the Women's and Children's Hospital, Adelaide. Information pertaining to demographic details, length of stay, otoplasty technique and complications (early and late) were obtained...

An absent or poorly defined antihelix often plays a central role in the perception of the prominent ear. A wide variety of otoplasty techniques have been described over the last 50 years that aim to reshape, create, or enhance the definition of the antihelix, which can, in turn, help to reduce the prominence of an ear. In addition to conventional suture and cartilage-scoring techniques, a permanent implantable clip system (Earfold® ) has recently become available that is placed using a minimally invasive approach performed under local anesthesia...

An expectation of perfect and close to ideal outcomes is attributed not only to aesthetic, but also to reconstructive surgery. Contrary to quite common belief and despite great potential, the real chances for achieving attractive appearance are limited to relatively simple cases with moderately abnormal morphology, sufficient homogenous material, and hardly conspicuous scars potential. Therefore, the expectations for fully satisfactory outcomes should be limited to jaw surgery, cosmetic rhinoplasty, otoplasty, and some rejuvenation procedures, provided the best and uneventful surgery is secured...

PURPOSE: The significant shortcomings associated with current autologous reconstructive options for auricular deformities have inspired great interest in a tissue engineering solution. A major obstacle in the engineering of human auricular cartilage is the availability of sufficient autologous human chondrocytes. A clinically obtainable amount of auricular cartilage tissue (ie, 1 g) only yields approximately 10 million cells, where 25 times this amount is needed for the fabrication of a full-scale pediatric ear...

Numerous suture techniques and covering flaps have been described to minimize complications related to sutures in otoplasty. The split postauricular fascial flap is one of such techniques, and it has been used to pad otoplasty suture. The aim of this study was to evaluate complications related to nonabsorbable cartilage sutures in otoplasty, using a variation of the split postauricular fascial flap. In this retrospective case series, we analyzed otoplasty patients in whom simplified split postauricular fascial flap was utilized...

Over the last 100 years, more than 200 different methods have been described to correct prominent ear deformity. These techniques revolved around various combinations of postauricular incision, cartilage scoring, and strategic suture placement to reapproximate the antihelical fold and correct angular deformity. In the last two decades, fascial flap techniques have become prominent in otoplasty. This article gives a comprehensive review of the different surgical techniques employed to construct fascial flaps and their contributions to otoplasty...

BACKGROUND: Prominent ears are by far the most common congenital ear deformity. Many techniques have been described using one or a combination of 3 basic methods: cartilage cutting, cartilage weakening and pure cartilage shaping techniques. The ideal otoplasty technique should yield a natural correction of the deformity, with low recurrence rates and with little risk of complications. METHODS: A new cartilage shaping technique using closing wedge concentric microchondrectomies through an entirely posterior approach is presented...

Surgical options to optimise one's body image are also accessible to adolescents. Although the vast majority of surgical procedures in this group of patients focus on otoplasty, 4 % of procedures in Germany are performed on the breast. The onset of menarche has not changed much in recent years, but obesity seems to generate problems with the breast for young girls. Since it is difficult to assess maturity and psychological resilience in young patients, a plastic surgeon is faced with an area of conflicts regarding his or her will to meet patients' reasonable wishes to ease their suffering, offer reliable and sustainable results, and comply with legal regulations that are largely uncertain...

Otoplasty is one of the first procedures learned during residency. A myriad of surgical techniques and nuances exist. Many have merit, some are ineffective, some destructive, and some frankly fanciful. Adopting an effective and safe technique should be based on proven efficacy and effectiveness to avoid early disappointments. We present a review of traditional otoplasty techniques and more recent innovations. Their pros and cons are discussed in view of the relative risks/benefits balance. Recurrence rates are low for most techniques...
