After going through a lengthy reconstruction process for breast cancer (separate review), I really struggled with the decision to opt for a surgical solution for a "minor" problem like uneven ears. Neither ear protruded greatly, but they just weren't quite a matched set. Apparently, it was not very noticeable to anyone but me, but it still bothered me. Dr. Kind offered the option of a very minor adjustment (pinning) of just the left ear to bring it into better visual alignment with the right. That subtle change was a great solution.
There is still some numbness around the ear, but the incision looks good and I know it takes a while for the body to fully heal. I'm very happy that I proceeded with the surgery.
