Retroauricular flaps based superiorly, inferiorly, or posteriorly may be tunneled through the ear to close a variety of acquired ear defects in a single-stage procedure. The technique is particularly helpful for larger, nonmarginal deformities in which both skin and perichondrium have been excised.
