Microtia is the medical term for small ears. Small ear deformity comes in many different forms. A component or the entire ear can be involved.

The Constricted or Cup Ear Deformity has the upper portion of the ear folded over and sometimes not fully developed. This makes the ear smaller: shorter in height.

Expansion of the deformed elements Cup or Lop Ear Otoplasty restores the balance of the auricle.

Hope this helps,
