Prominent ear deformity is a common congenital deformity of the external ear affecting 5% of the general population.
Because of the deformity's displeasing nature, corrective prominent ear surgery is widely common and performed as a prophylactic surgery.
More than 200 surgical techniques for the correction of prominent ear deformity have been described to improve the cosmetic outcome and decrease complication rates.
The aim of the study was to present a modified post auricular flap technique that increases the control of reshaping the ear cartilages, decreases the operation time, and provides a symmetrical long-lasting cosmetic outcome.
One hundred sixty-two patients (141 male and 21 female) had ear correction surgeries performed by the same surgeon using the described technique between January 2015 and January 2018.
One hundred sixty patients were gone through bilateral ear correction, whereas only 2 patients had unilateral ear correction procedures.
A modified posterior perichondrio-adipo-dermal flap technique for protruding ear correction was applied to all patients.
The patients' ages ranged from 18 to 40 years, with a median of 28.3 years.
