Abstract: Irregularity of the upper region of the helix can be prevented by performing scoring or abrasion of the upper part of the scapha. The prominence of the helix and width of the auricle are adjustable by varying the areas of the scapha receiving scoring or abrasion. These findings are useful in improving operative outcomes in the treatment of prominent ears.
