Abstract

Objectives: There are limited data on the effect of otoplasty on health-related quality of life (HRQoL) in prominent ears. There are no data on the effect of otoplasty on Glasgow Benefit Inventory (GBI) of otoplasty using hybrid techniques in adult patients. Methods: This study involved 28 patients who underwent otoplasty using combined procedures. We chose the GBI because it is a sensitive tool for detecting changes in health status following an intervention. Patients older than 13 years received the GBI, being retrospective well-validated questionnaires for measuring the effect of otorhinolaryngologic interventions, and particularly plastic surgery procedures, on HRQoL. An individual questionnaire was created by the standard GBI. We combined posterior auricular skin excision, Mustarde suture technique, and conchomastoid suture techniques for maximizing the cosmetic improvements. Results: According to the results of this study, good outcomes with patient satisfaction were achieved with this hybrid procedure. We found a conspicuous improvement in GBI total score as well as in the general health subscale after otoplasty. This indicates the beneficial impact on the healthy self-perception of this surgical procedure with prominent ears. Conclusions: In our retrospective assessment, GBI turned out to be a very useful and valuable tool in the evaluation of otoplasty. We demonstrated a long-lasting improvement in HRQoL after otoplasty for the prominent ears. Hybrid techniques are effective and satisfying treatment methods with high success rates for patients with prominent ears.
