To introduce our experience of correction of prominent ears by ear cartilage-folding method, which amalgamates some well-known techniques. Preoperative design was in a routine way. The anterior area of antihelix was dissected subcutaneously, and the surface of the cartilage was scored thoroughly. Satisfactory antihelix was established by folding with mattress suturing. One strip of skin was removed from the back of the concha with suture of the remaining cartilage to the mastoid periost to decrease the auricle-mastoid angle. Fifty-nine cases of prominent ears were followed up postoperatively from 1 to 24 months, and almost all of the ears achieved satisfactory effects. Both the antihelix and auricle-mastoid angle were improved markedly. Not only is this technique reliable, but it also has low recurrence.
