  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

Concha has difficulty of reconstruction for its depressed appearance and poor mobility of thecircumferential tissues. A retroauricular subcutane-ous flap is ideal for the conchal reconstruction, because this flap has a thin form, sufficient blood supply from postauricular artery, and excellent texture and color match. In addition, the donor scar of the flap is inconspicuous. Depressed appearance of the concha is able to be replicated because of less scar contracture.
