Chongchet's otoplasty: not only a method of anthelix reconstruction

Chongchet's otoplasty: not only a method of anthelix reconstruction The cause of prominent ear deformity may be anthelix deficiency or a high conchal wall (2). Chongchet's otoplasty (3) is an old method described for correction of anthelix deficiency via anterior scoring. The aim of this study is to show the use of Chongchet's otoplasty in conchal wall reduction and the use of auricular cartilage tension lines in surgical correction of prominent ear deformity. In 24 prominent ear cases with different causes anterior scoring was performed along the auricular cartilage tension lines. Conchal reduction as well as antihelical reconstruction was easily achieved by folding the cartilage; excess conchal wall cartilage was excised laterally. Long-term results show pleasing contours without any recurrence. In conclusion, Chongchet's otoplasty which permits conchal wall reduction and anterior scoring according to auricular cartilage tension lines facilitates conchal and antihelical folding.
