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: What's the least invasive procedure to correct the bump on my left nostril?
The bump has gotten worse over the years. It feels as though the cartilage cracked. I can kinda push down on the bump and put it "into place." I'm not looking for the perfect nose. Ihave a deviated septum and my nose sways to my left. Again, my nose doesn't have to be perfect...I'm only interested in the least evasive procedure to correct or smooth this bump on left nostril area.

Dr. Denenberg's answer: There's no tiny operation to fix the bump
Hi,
That "bump" is one of the two cartilages that make up your tip. There's a bump on the other side, too, but it's smaller.
In order to minimize the bump, those cartilages need to be modified, and that's a rhinoplasty. You need an experienced surgeon with excellent before and after photos. Many plastic surgeons don't have the skill to make an accurate correction of your "bump," because it has to do with modifying those tip cartilages, somewhat of an advanced technique, in my experience.
