A 40-year-old male presented with a fluctuant swelling in front of the right ear. His past history is significant for having undergone surgery for the swelling four times in the past 6 years with recurrence each time. We excised the swelling by using a preauricular incision with reverse question mark type extension into the temporal area. The advantages are complete unhindered exposure, excellent cosmesis, and prevention of damage to the temporal branch of facial nerve.
