Thanks in advance for your answer! I have a small head with very large ears… they are well-formed/normal shape, but overall too big for a small face. They protrude a bit in the middle and bottom (top of ear is close to head) but the main problem is size. Are there any measurements or ratios you use as a rule of thumb to analyze ear/face balance? Can otoplasty work to essentially hide the ears from view? Following an otoplasty, if that telephone deformity (which I see in many surgeons’ “after” pics) results even slightly, then I fear big ears that now draw more attention! And even if no relapsing occurs, the big size will still be visible from the side view. My lobes are also generous in size… do you think a combo of traditional pin-back and lobe reduction could work? How bad are lobe reduction scars? Do people tend to heal differently?
Thank you- your site and blog are fantastic.
