The ear can actually look a little bigger from the side view after surgery, because before the operation, when it is sticking out away from the head, we see it edge-on, as in the before photo above.  After surgery, when the ear is flatter against the head, we see more of the ear from this side view, and the ear can appear to be larger.

Check out his hair in his after picture.  I had his parents clean the incision line with hydrogen peroxide after surgery, and I think they bleached him out a little.

Questioner: Would getting just the tip of my nose done help my face profile?
I am very insecure and I really don't like facing people. Especially from the side! I can't afford a a real expensive nose job! I currently have $4300 saved for the procedure and that took a whIle! Please give me some advice to make this as good but as cheap as possible! Thank you:)
(Questioner submitted photos)

Dr. Denenberg's answer: Tough question. Tough. My advice is to not have surgery right now.
Your nose has very wide tip cartilages and strong forward projection away from your face. While it is possible to make impressive improvement in your nose, the operation requires very advanced techniques, and the vast majority of plastic surgeons would not be able to handle it. 

Unfortunately, it's just reality that excellent rhinoplasty tends to be expensive; well more than half of the $4300 would be eaten up by anesthesia, the operating facility, required preoperative tests and examinations, leaving not enough for the surgeon's fee for a surgeon who could handle a nose like yours. And having surgery with a surgeon who is not qualified to handle a nose like yours (even though he might be board certified), could very well leave it worse, and now you're looking at a *much* more expensive revision.

When it does come time to look for a surgeon, be sure to look at his before and after photos. Seeing profile views where a hump was removed doesn't tell you anything about how the surgeon can handle the tip of the nose.
