Earfold: A New Technique for Correction of the Shape of the Antihelix.

Laryngoscope 2018 Oct 15;128(10):2282-2290. Epub 2018 Apr 15.

Allergan plc, Marlow, United Kingdom.

An absent or poorly defined antihelix often plays a central role in the perception of the prominent ear. A wide variety of otoplasty techniques have been described over the last 50 years that aim to reshape, create, or enhance the definition of the antihelix, which can, in turn, help to reduce the prominence of an ear. In addition to conventional suture and cartilage-scoring techniques, a permanent implantable clip system (Earfold ) has recently become available that is placed using a minimally invasive approach performed under local anesthesia.

Remarks on Perfection in Plastic Surgery of the Face.

Biomed Res Int 2018 16;2018:5835167. Epub 2018 Jan 16.

Department of Maxillofacial Orthopedics and Orthodontics, Wrocław Medical University, Wrocław, Poland.

An expectation of perfect and close to ideal outcomes is attributed not only to aesthetic, but also to reconstructive surgery. Contrary to quite common belief and despite great potential, the real chances for achieving attractive appearance are limited to relatively simple cases with moderately abnormal morphology, sufficient homogenous material, and hardly conspicuous scars potential. Therefore, the expectations for fully satisfactory outcomes should be limited to jaw surgery, cosmetic rhinoplasty, otoplasty, and some rejuvenation procedures, provided the best and uneventful surgery is secured.

Tissue Engineering Auricular Cartilage Using Late Passage Human Auricular Chondrocytes.

Ann Plast Surg 2018 Apr;80(4 Suppl 4):S168-S173

Purpose: The significant shortcomings associated with current autologous reconstructive options for auricular deformities have inspired great interest in a tissue engineering solution. A major obstacle in the engineering of human auricular cartilage is the availability of sufficient autologous human chondrocytes. A clinically obtainable amount of auricular cartilage tissue (ie, 1 g) only yields approximately 10 million cells, where 25 times this amount is needed for the fabrication of a full-scale pediatric ear.

Philip Solomon, MD, FRCSC, completed his medical school training at the University of Toronto, followed by a 5-year residency training program in Otolaryngology Head and Neck Surgery at the University of Toronto. Dr. Solomon's training focused on head and neck cancer surgery, reconstructive facial surgery, and facial cosmetic plastic surgery including rhinoplasty, facelift, blepharoplasty, and otoplasty surgery.

With increased demands for medical aesthetics procedures and the sudden profusion of newly licensed, and unlicensed, providers who are performing these medical aesthetics procedures also comes the responsibility to shift to collective competence. Collective competence refers to what occurs among professionals in action, emphasizing the sharing of experiences, knowledge, and perceptions among those who are providing services to the medical aesthetics client. Registered nurses and medical students are not taught to perform cosmetic procedures in basic nursing or medical programs and thus require a post-entry-level education to validate their competency.

Newborn Ear Deformities: Early Recognition and Novel Nonoperative Techniques.

Semin Plast Surg 2017 Aug 9;31(3):141-145. Epub 2017 Aug 9.

Division of Plastic Surgery, Michael E. DeBakey Department of Surgery, Baylor College of Medicine, Houston, Texas.

Congenital auricular anomalies are common sources of aesthetic concern and psychosocial distress for both children and their parents. Only one-third of these anomalies self-correct, leaving a large need for acceptable corrective methods. Otoplasty is often the standard treatment; however, newer nonsurgical methods, including splinting and molding in the neonatal period, have shown favorable results without the complications of surgical intervention and with the advantage of early intervention.

The posterior auricular muscle: a useful anatomical landmark for otoplasty.

J Laryngol Otol 2017 May 7;131(5):465-467. Epub 2017 Mar 7.

Department of Plastic Surgery,Ninewells Hospital and Medical School,Dundee,Scotland,UK.

Background: The correct anatomical placement of conchomastoid sutures during suture otoplasty can sometimes prove challenging. If the suture vector is inaccurate, reduction can be difficult and this may lead to malrotation of the pinna.

Methods: This paper describes the adoption of the auricularis posterior muscle, which runs from the mastoid to the concha and whose function is to adduct the pinna, as a marker for conchomastoid suture placement. Read More

The Existence of a Natural Plica at the Anatomical Base of the Antihelix and its Surgical Importance to Address Protruding Ears: An Anatomicosurgical Study.

Aesthetic Plast Surg 2017 Apr 7;41(2):321-326. Epub 2017 Jan 7.

Division of Plastic Surgery at Santa Casa General Hospital, Campo Grande, MS, Brazil.

Background: Protruding ears represent the main abnormality of the external ear, which has required numerous anatomic and surgical studies. Most studies give attention to the absence of the antihelix as the anatomic defect responsible for the clinical deformity of the lateral aspect of the ear that leads to its anteversion. The reason for this study is the controversial origin of the fold of the antihelix within the auricle framework, a field of interest for aesthetic otoplasty. Read More
