I have uneven ears, it make my face uneven. It seems that my left ear dropped 1 cm. Is there anyway to fix it? (so they will correct in horizontal position) Is it caused by bad jaw?
Auricular dystopia (uneven horizontal placement of ears)
There may be a variety of reasons for the uneven horizontal orientation of your ears (dystopia). These can be due to soft tissue or boney asymmetry. You should meet with plastic surgeon for an evaluation and recommendation of treatment options.
Correcting unequal ear height not possible
There is no real reason to correct the height elevation of the ears. It is really impossible since the ear canal is connected into the center of the skull.
The ears can be pinned back by re-sculpting, shaping, and suturing the ear cartilage and creating a new anti-helical fold.

Otoplasty Surgery may be performed to restore symmetry.
I'm not sure what you're describing. It's unusual for an adult ear to undergo a significant change in position.
Otoplasty Surgery is commonly performed for ears that are too prominent and stick out too far. Surgery can be performed on one side if only one protrudes.
You should consult a board-certified Otoplasty surgeon to discuss your options, and see if you're a candidate for this type of surgery.
I hope this is helpful for you.

Uneven ears a reflection of skull asymmetry
Most of the time when you have uneven ears it is because your ear canal are uneven. The ear canals are part of the skull and there is no reason to consider revising the skull for this problem.
You can always have a plastic surgeon look at it but there are no standard techniques for elevating an ear vertically.
