Everyone has a different feel for what constitutes protruding ears.  These ears weren't bad, they did contain the normal folds of cartilage, but the upper part of the ears were too projecting for the way she wore her hair and the way she saw herself.  Fine.  As long as the operation can be accomplished safely, meeting the patient's goals, it's okay to proceed.

Questioner: Can rhinoplasty fix my narrow and long nose?
How extensive of a procedure will it take to correct my nose? What options are there as far as shaping out there for me? What shape would compliment my facial structure?
(Questioner submitted photos)

Dr. Denenberg's answer: You are a somewhat typical candidate for a rhinoplasty
The operation wouldn't be more extensive than an "average" rhinoplasty, although I consider all rhinoplasties fairly "extensive."

I think most people, if they had your nose and were of a mind to change it, would consider lowering the bump on the bridge, narrowing the tip a small amount, elevating the tip up a small amount, and deprojecting the tip -- that is, bringing the entire nose back closer to your face.
