Okay - I just have to share the (semi) results of a search request I received on Wednesday. One of the plastic surgeons, who usually gives me a good run for my money every time he asks for a literature search, sent me a request as follows: These authors please 3, 4 Eisenklam method 5, 6 Ear reduction of Meyer & Sieber After two days of on & off searching, this afternoon I finally tracked down the "references" to a German plastic surgeon's web site. The numbers refer to posted photos showing various ear reduction methods. Of course, the web site doesn't discuss the methods, just refers to them. A little more investigation pointed me to a reference from 1930 written by a J. Eisenklam. I'm still trying to find anything by Meyer & Sieber. All in a day's work.... Happy weekend everyone.
