The above picture shows a patient who had Lop | Cup | Cryptotic | Constricted Ears Before and After Otoplasty.  The after picture was shown immediately after the procedure. Below we will show you the healing diary of this patient and you can follow along as we add them. The procedure was done last week. The left ear was a prominent ear that was sticking out more than normal. This is mostly due to a prominent conchal bowl and | or an absent bend in the anti – helix.  We usually correct these ears by shaving the conchal bowl incrementally to weaken it to just the right degree and then the ear is fastened to the back of the head at that location.  But we needed extra cartilage for the other side. So we harvested the whole conchal bowl and this was then used to reconstruct the other side. During the Otoplasty, the right Lop | Cup | Constricted Ear was exposed and the curved over part had radial incisions like spokes on a wheel and each spoke was then bent to straighten it. The left conchal bowl was then used to support and add additional height to the right ear.  Further contouring of the right conchal bowl was required and the upper part of the ear, or helix was then straightened and attached to the back of the head in this location. See below for some outer ear anatomy.
