Cryptotia is a relatively common deformity of the ear among orientals. Although many methods for correcting this deformity have been reported, there is no one perfect method. We have developed a method using a subcutaneous pedicle flap raised from the retroauricular region, where relative abundance of skin exists. We have treated 9 ears of 7 patients by the method reported herein. Results are satisfactory in all cases.
