The Beautiful Ear

When evaluating an ear for harmony, multiple views are important. A single perspective can hide deformities seen from other angles. Notice on the many cases on this site, each has many views. You can look at each ear from many different angles. The best results will look good from all directions. Images before and after surgery need the same lighting, angle of photography, and size for a reasonable comparison.

The beautiful ear has a natural look to it. Curves are graceful and gentle. The ear should not dominate the frontal profile as the image on the left.
