The auricle is a complex anatomic structure with a three-dimensional configuration proper reinstating that poses a substantial reconstructive challenge. The postauricular pull-through flap is perfectly suitable method for the reconstruction of helical and antihelical auricle defects; however, due to its difficult harvest technique, it is not commonly used in a practice. Here we describe a case of a patient with an antihelix defect following basal cell carcinoma (BCC). In our case, the reconstruction was performed via postauricular pull-through pedicle flap, and a satisfactory result was achieved.
