Patient with moderate bar ear deformity. The situation was resolved using a posterior (behind the ear) approach. Many patients with bat ears think that their ears would be too big. This is not the case. Bat ears are more a problem of lack of development of the ear cartilage. We use the so called “mustarde” technique, which entails reshaping of the cartilage with laser assisted cartilage modellation and deep buried reshaping positional sutures. This protocol, in our hands, ensures the best possible result in ear reshaping (otoplasty) surgery.
