Otoplasty Ear Surgery / Folding the Helix Back?
« on: August 17, 2012, 07:58:55 AM »
I hope I'm using the right terms and giving an explanation that can be understood,

My situation, from the research I've done, is that restructuring the ear by rotating or restructuring the anti helix or the anti helical fold is not going to solve the problem. My problem is that the Helix (upper portion, not sure of the precise term) of my ear is large and protrudes outward at the upper tip (it sort of folds outwards) so that the ear would need to be pinned back drastically and unnaturally to compensate for that protrusion. Photo 5 is an example of how pinning wouldn't really help me.

In other words, what I would be interested in would simply be an operation only on the helix, folding it back with a sort of pinch method - so essentially the helix would be folded back over the anti helix towards the head.

Is such a folding operation easy to do? I tried testing the look with my fingers and I am pleasantly surprised that I would be happy with this look and that it would look quite natural. Can that be done simply by stitching and no sutures need to be placed or other traditional incisions?
