The auricle is susceptible to damage because of its position in the body. Reconstruction of auricular defects, especially on the anterior side, is challenging considering the thin skin compartment and complex topography. Various techniques can be used for reconstruction, of which local flaps are preferred owing to their excellent outcomes. We report a case of cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma in the cavum concha that was successfully reconstructed with a modified advancement flap technique. We would like to share our experience and suggest the modified advancement flap as an option for reconstruction.
