I’ve heard of both incisionless and traditional techniques for otoplasty. Are the results not as good with the incisionless approach?
The incisionless approach for otoplasty certainly adds a degree of uncertainty for the result. As with most procedures, certain individuals are masters of a particular technique and get excellent results, however since the incision for otoplasty is placed entirely behind the ear and usually heals in an imperceptible manner, we do not feel that the incisionless technique adds any advantage.
