Can The Ear Be Moved Further Forward?

Q: Dr. Eppley, Regarding the use of cheek arch implants for the purpose of widening the face, is there a way to bring the forward part of the ear outward along with the implant? (So as to prevent the cheekbone from appearing to be “rising too tall” relative to the ear) 

A: You can not move the ear forward, with or without an implant. It is a fixed structure attached to the side of the head by the cartilaginous ear canal.
