Details of this ear reduction otoplasty start here.

As the ear is reduced with ear reduction otoplasty, elements further out have more that need to be reduced. A reduction of height from 7.4 or 7.7 cm to 6.5 cm, results in a great deal of excess helical rim. Since the scapha has yet to be reduced, the excess helix determination must wait until all elements have been reduced.

Behind the ear the cartilage is repaired and then the entire ear's projection from the scalp was adjusted with sutures to the scalp. The wedge resection of the floor of the concha can tilt the ear further away from the head. The Conchal Suture setback permits adjustment of the ears' projection.

This ear needs protection with a formal ear dressing.
