Abstract

The aim of incisionless otoplasty technique is to create a cosmetically pleasing pinna. The steps necessary to create a pleasing pinna include percutaneous needle modeling of the cartilage that breaks the cartilage memory spring and establishes a specifically weakened tract in the cartilage which will bend in a certain way so as to create a new pinna form and permanent sutures are percutaneously placed in order to hold the cartilage during the scar healing process. Separate incisionless techniques deal with the antihelical fold, lobule, and conchal bowl. Each of these techniques can be used alone or in combination for any specific patient’s ear deformity.
