Details revision otoplasty - Contracted Antihelical Fold

A flat antihelix can be a component of the over projecting ear. When the antihelical fold is bent too far or with sharp components, the ear looks over operated. Revision surgery can unfold this deformity.

The antihelix cartilage was folded too much creating a sharp deformity bringing the back of the ear too close to the head.

Sometimes the cartilage deformity is too stiff and will not hold its new shape. A spacer (typically cartilage) can help hold the over folded structure open. Unfortunately this stent can also result in a less natural stiffer ear. When discontinuous spacers are used, you may be able to feel bumps behind the ear.

This cartilage graft can sometimes come from the ear, septum of the nose, or rib.

Ears can be sculpted in many ways. Picking the right technique is an art form.
