Figure 1: Reconstruction of a helical defect with placement of a button bolster. The placement of the skin graft (A) resulted in buckling of the scaphoid fossa and helical dimpling (B). After placement of a sterilized button, the natural contours were restored with only minor helical dimpling secondary to a placed sutured at the helical margin (C). At 3 months, the contours of the ear are preserved with few visible signs of the skin graft (D)
