A vascularized chondrocutaneous free flap from the root of the auricular helix can serve as a solution to the problem of alar reconstruction. It is unlike local flaps that may result in additional facial scarring and bulky alae that require multiple thinning revisions. This flap produces satisfactory symmetry between the two alae and a good color match. The donor defect can be concealed with hair in female patients (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10).
