Reduction of antihelix cartilage during otoplasty for macrotia

Photo drawing of the reduction of the antihelix.

To reduce the length of the antihelix, skin and the cartilage must be removed. Tissue removed must remain in harmony with the other elements of the ear. More antihelix is removed than concha, but less than that of the helix rim.

The antihelix reduction requires a sculpting of the cartilage elements to even the transition. Skin reduction was done at a different level than the cartilage repair to minimize the chance of notching.
