Two main reasons men seek aesthetic improvement of their ears are:
Prominent or protruding ears are a common congenital anomaly. Depending on the anatomy and the cause of protrusion, surgical repair usually involves an incision behind the ear, suturing the cartilage closer to the skull and molding / removing excess cartilage.
Gauge earrings have become increasingly popular in Western culture as the material needed are more readily available. When a person with prolonged use of gauge earring decides not to use them (new job, joining the military, or personal preference), they are left with a large defect and an unpleasing stretched out ear lobe.
