Skin cancer surgery of the ear may result in a large defect of skin and cartilage requiring a staged flap procedure for reconstruction. An alternative to surgical reconstruction is the creation of a silicone auricular prosthesis. These prostheses provide a cost-effective and cosmetically acceptable means of camouflage for patients who decline or postpone surgical reconstruction. The process of creating a silicone auricular prosthesis is discussed. (J Am Acad Dermatol 2000;43:687-90.)
