Distortion of ear protrusion after rhytidectomy results in an aesthetically unfavorable appearance. We have seen cases in which the auriculocephalic angle has widened postoperatively, producing a noticeable deformity. Herein, we report 3 cases that resulted in abnormal postsurgical ear protrusion. We also discuss prevention through the use of conchal setback sutures.
