Abstract

Objective: Prominent ear is one of the most frequent congenital deformities of the ear. The major causes are often due to an underdeveloped antihelical fold, conchal hypertrophy, and a prominent ear lobule. More than 200 different techniques have been described so far. This report presents the effectiveness of a combined technique (Mustarde suture, Furnas suture, and conchal excision), which is frequently used in prominent ear treatment to prevent recurrence.
