Abstract: 

Background: One of the most common facial anomalies is the presence of a prominent ear. Numerous surgical techniques have been introduced in the literature for correction of this anomaly, which include suturing and sculpturing the ear cartilage. However, each has different complications. The modified Chongchet technique is one of the less invasive methods and can correct the above abnormality with satisfying results.
Methods: From July 2001 to March 2011, 19 cases of prominent ear were corrected using the modified Chongchet technique. The mean follow-up period was approximately 4.5 years. We employed an anterior approach and partial-thickness scaphal cartilage scoring in these cases.
Results: We observed no recurrences and no sharp cartilage protrusions following the surgeries. Additionally, all patients expressed satisfaction with the results.
Conclusion: We propose that the modified Chongchet approach is less aggressive and has improved surgical outcomes. One of the adverse effects of this procedure is unpredictable warping of the cartilage, which may result in asymmetry.
