Auricular surgery is a challenging subject in plastic surgery due to the complicated surface topography of the external ear. Although various techniques for ear reduction and helical rim reconstruction have been reported in the literature, an ideal method is yet to be defined. Double helical rim advancement flaps with scaphal resection presented in this report represent a practical technique for correcting macrotia and reconstructing helical rim defects.
