What is an Accessory Auricle?

These are generally known by different names such as accessory tragus, supernumerary tragus, ear skin tags etc

These are additional parts of the external ear often seen in front of the tragus (the prominent cartilage in front of the auditory canal) that can be present at birth and continue to grow with age. They usually contain cartilage, and they can take different shapes and projections. These defects are completely normal, and it is not always necessary to remove them surgically.

Can they be removed?

Surgery is the only way to remove these, which is usually performed under local anaesthesia, then a small incision around the part and simple sutures to the skin. This should only be performed by an experienced consultant in this field as it is known that inadequate removal can potentially lead to an inflammatory condition called “chondrodermatitis” due to exposure of rough cartilage in that area. At Renew Skin and Health clinic we currently offer surgical excision of these accessory tragus for ages 13 years and upwards.

What is the recovery time?

The wound normally heals within a week and patients can usually commence their regular activities immediately after surgery. We do however advise to refrain from contact sports for at least 8-10 weeks following the procedure.

To discuss your case, you can contact our doctor via our business WhatsApp 01926 422 454. Please share a few very close up images of the area to be treated and mention the age of the patient as we are only able to offer treatment for those aged 13 years or older.

For the peace of your mind we confirm that all these surgical conditions at Renew Skin and Health Clinic, are operated by highly experienced & accredited plastic surgeons who are on GMC’s specialist register..
