Details Mustarde Suture Setback Antehelix Folding Otoplasty Surgery can bend a flat Antihelix pinning the ear closer to the head.
Anterior Cartilage Scoring Pinback Otoplasty weakens stiff cartilage creating a gentle bend lessening the work of the Mustarde sutures.
Concha Setback Otoplasty flattens a projecting Concha Bowl closer to the head. Spira's Concha Flap is a variation of this technique. In this example the concha is set back and the Anthelix folded - both were needed for this patient's ear.
