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.

Will Anyone Be Able to Make my Nose Look Like my Morphed After-photos?
Does it look like my after-photos is something that could be done? I am looking for someone who is skilled with especially tip-work, since I will need to deproject my nose-tip and possibly "slim" it down a bit, since it's also a bit bulbous. And then I also want to get rid of the bump on the nose bridge. Is it possible? And what would you charge for such a procedure?

Dr. Denenberg's answer: Your morphed changes are definitely possible
I like your morph a lot! The nose was made shorter (I kind of like shorter noses), the tip was brought back closer to your face, the hump was removed, and the artist also tried to decrease the prominence of your right tip cartilage. Click on my "Web reference" link for an animation of your morph -- I find that animations of the morphs allow you to study the changes better.
When selecting a surgeon, you definitely need to see before and after photos of patients with some of your same issues. Bringing the tip up, and back to the face, and making it more narrow -- all of those changes require advanced work on the tip of the nose, the hardest part of a rhinoplasty.
