Is this ear deformity fixable? - Lop Ear
Hello and thank you for your question.
Yes this is known as a lop ear. There are a number of ways to improve the profile of the upper pole of the lopped ear to better match the non affected side.
The operation is not a large one but requires meticulous technique and quite some experience to ensure the best aesthetic profile outcome.
I hope that is helpful; best wishes.
