Abstract

BACKGROUND: Auricular deformities, specifically, prominent ears, are relatively frequent. Although the physiologic consequences are negligible, the aesthetic and psychological effects on the patient can be substantial. METHODS: Otoplasty techniques are used to correct many auricular deformities, including the prominent ear, the constricted ear, Stahl's deformity, and cryptotia. Various treatments and techniques have been developed for the correction of these deformities, including methods that excise, bend, suture, scratch, or reposition the auricular cartilage. RESULTS: The multitude of different approaches indicates that there is not one clearly definitive technique for correcting these problems. CONCLUSIONS: This article reviews the history of otoplasty, its anatomical basis and a method for evaluation, techniques for the correction of the deformity, and potential complications of the procedure.
