Otoplasty is a continually evolving procedure that significantly and beneficially alters the patient’s facial appearance. Multiple techniques have been and are currently in use. A new method for partial or total correction of the lop protuberant ear deformity is described, the basis for this technique being percutaneous placement of retention sutures. Percutaneous placement leads to an incisionless otoplasty technique. Depending on the ear deformity, the incisionless technique may be used alone or in conjunction with other methods.
