Abstract

This report introduces a new method for the correction of cryptotia using an advancement flap supplied by both superior auricular muscle and skin pedicle. This procedure has many advantages: the design is simple, the procedure is easy, the hairline is not disturbed by the operation, the maintenance of a deep auricular sulcus allows the patient to wear glasses, the scar behind the auricle is not visible, recurrence of the cryptotia is prevented and there is no need for additional skin grafting. Satisfactory contour and protrusion of the upper part of the auricle were maintained postoperatively.
