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: Are these enough qualifications for a Rhinoplasty surgeon?
I already met with dr (?) and feel comfortable to go with him to perform my rhinoplasty. I just want to make sure he has the right qualifications. “ABMS MOC” Maintenance of Certifcation (MOC) by the American Board of Plastic Surgery Current Diplomat, American Board of Plastic Surgery Current Certification of Advanced Cosmetic Surgery Past Diplomat, American Board of Surgery
(Questioner submitted photos)

Dr. Denenberg's answer: Looking for these qualifications can get you in big trouble
There are lots of boards and groups that certify and evaluate surgeons who perform rhinoplasty.

But you want to know the *skill* of your doctor. The great majority of doctors who do rhinoplasty are mediocre at this operation, and the only way to tell the doctor's skill is to review his before and after photos. Board certification means almost nothing at all. Ignore the diplomas and look at the photos. See whether he has been able to accomplish for others precisely what you want for yourself.

If you find yourself looking for a revision operation later, having picked a doctor with the "right" qualifications this time will be very little comfort indeed.
