Some people are born with earlobes that are larger than average in size and are so self conscious and embarrassed that they style their hair to cover their ears. Others have worn heavy pierced earrings that over time have weighed down the earlobes causing them to become elongated and stretched. Some people were born with long earlobes and they would like the appearance changed.
Plastic facial cosmetic surgery can address all these issues and provide an individual with a pleasing appearance to an earlobe that will be harmonious not only to the rest of the ear but also to a patient’s entire facial appearance.
Earlobe reduction surgery or shortening is a cosmetic surgery procedure that after an incision is made in the affected area gently lifts and reshapes the earlobe. The incision is closed with fine sutures that will be undetectable when fully healed. The surgery is performed in the office on an out-patient basis.
