The front surface of this ear is very flat in its upper half.  Some of the natural folds of the ear cartilage were missing from his ear, causing it to protrude away from his head.  You can see in the after picture that those folds are now present.

Recreating those cartilage folds isn't the only task in bringing these ears closer to the head, but it's an important part of the operation.

Questioner: Is It Worth Getting my Rhinoplasty? Because I Think my Front Looks Good.
how should it change?
(Questioner submitted photos)

Dr. Denenberg's answer: Often the frontal view changes little in a rhinoplasty
When most of your complaints result from a strong profile view, it's possible to improve that profile while making only tiny changes to the frontal view. See my "Web reference" link for a morph showing how your profile could be changed and some other important info. I brought the tip of your nose back closer to your face, took down the hump, and raised the tip a small amount.

These changes would only affect the frontal view by perhaps having the nose not droop down over your lip quite so much. It makes sense: you can't really tell from the frontal view how big someone's hump is, so it's the profile view that changes more.
