Reduction otoplasty is an uncommon procedure performed for macrotia and ear asymmetry. Techniques described in the literature for this procedure are few. The authors present their ear reduction approach that not only achieves the desired reduction effectively and accurately, but also addresses and creates the natural anatomic proportions of the ear, leaving a scar well hidden within the fold of the helix.
