Question: I’ve heard of both incisionless and traditional techniques for otoplasty. Are the results not as good with the incisionless approach?
Answer: Incisionless otoplasty is a technique where very small incisions are made to allow sutures and cartilage-sparing techniques to be used to re-shape the ear. If there is a major correction needed, the incisionless otoplasty may not give you the results that you desire. Traditional otoplasty techniques hide the incision wound with very, very good results.
