I like to put the ears very close to the head during an otoplasty.  In the months after surgery, the ears will creep out a little away from the head, and we can't predict the final position of the ears exactly.  Since their final position will either be a little too close to the head than ideal, or a little to far away, I prefer that they be too close.  Besides, nobody ever notices ears that are too close to the head: the ears only attract attention if they stick out too far.

Questioner: Can my Results Still Be Corrected or is It Not Worth the Risk?
Furthermore, Based on the Pictures What Can Be Done to Improve? Hi, I had an open rhino. about a year ago, I'm really unhappy with the results. I originally had a dorsal hump removed but the doctor put a whole bunch of grafts in my nose also. (I have oily med/thick skin and I think I still have shrinking/swelling left). However, it still looks droopy, long, wide especially when I smile or laugh. How do I find a good dr. that can fix my nose type, my last specialist surgeon had a great "record" but it obviously didn't cut it. Any info would help. Thanks.
(Questioner submitted photos)

Dr. Denenberg's answer: I agree your nose would probably improve if it were shortened
Even on a revision, shortening a nose by raising the tip can be one of the most predictable changes to make. See my "Web reference" link for a morph I made of one of your images.

Shortening a nose like that requires advanced work on the tip cartilages, so be sure your next surgeon has shown you before and after photos of other patients of his whose noses were shortened attractively. Seeing photos is your only way of checking out a surgeon's skill.
