How Complex Would My Otoplasty Reversal Be?

Q: Dr. Eppley, Can I fax your office operative notes to get your opinion on how complex my otoplasty reversal would be. Please

A:While I am happy to read the prior surgeon’s operative notes, and more information is never a negative, any form of otoplasty reversal comes down to the same two principles…..adequate cartilage/soft tissue release and an interpositional cartilage graft to hold it. These same two intraoperative techniques must be done regardless of how the ears were pinned back.
