Ear concha hypertrophy corrected by elliptical conchal excision often resulted in deformity due to lateral deviation of the anterior part of the concha. A modification of the method allows to avoid that deviation: the conchal ellipse is left connected to the conchal floor, is weakened by half thickness incisions parallel to the edge; the conchal floor thus flattened is sutured to the lateral side of the head by non absorbable suture.
