Earlobe Reduction Surgery
Elongated, torn or sagging earlobes are a common aesthetic issue, especially for older adults. Earlobes are pliable cartilage and skin that are prone to sagging and damage from aging, gravity or trauma. If you have earlobes that are too large or long, it can detract from your overall appearance. Dr. Ben Stong at Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery, LLC, offers earlobe reduction surgery and earlobe lifts for a rejuvenated appearance for aging ears.
Most people do not think twice about the size or shape of their earlobes until they begin to change. Young adults have earlobes that are proportionate with their ears, tending to be flat, plump and relatively short. You may not even notice that one earlobe is slightly longer than the other, as it may only be a fraction of a centimeter difference between the right and the left. However, when earlobes begin to sag or are damaged, they can become very noticeable. Common reasons for earlobe changes include:
- Sagging due to aging
- Gravity over time causes earlobes to droop
- Genetic or congenital issues that cause asymmetry or deformed earlobes
Whatever the cause, stretched, sagging or damaged earlobes can be embarrassing or belie your age. Earlobe lifts, reduction or reshaping can restore symmetrical, smaller earlobes for a balanced, youthful appearance.
Earlobe Reshaping Plastic Surgeon
Dr. Stong is a dual board certified facial plastic surgeon with extensive experience in creating natural, beautiful changes to the facial features. If you have earlobes that are misshapen, Dr. Stong can help you restore aesthetically pleasing lobes for your ears by using the most advanced techniques. Stretched, sagging or over-sized earlobes can be reduced and reshaped for a balanced, youthful appearance.
Reshaping and reducing the earlobe is referred to as loboplasty, a type of ear plastic surgery. The soft cartilage and skin can be altered and repaired, then resized to a “normal” size and shape. Reducing the length and thickness can make earlobes look more youthful to match the age and look you desire. This is a quick procedure that can be performed at Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery, LLC, in Atlanta.
Earlobe Lift for a Youthful Appearance
Older women, in particular, tend to be prone to earlobe sagging. This is usually due to decades of gravity and wearing heavy earrings that pull down on the earlobe. When your earlobe becomes larger or your earlobe is hanging too low, it is common to be self-conscious of your ears. You may no longer want to wear your favorite earrings, or may even hide your ears behind a changed hairstyle or scarf.
An earlobe lift can restore youthful lobes, and you can again wear the earrings you love. Dr. Stong can perform most earlobe reductions, reshaping and lifts as an outpatient procedure at his office. Most earlobe lifts take less than an hour and can be performed with local anesthesia. There is little to no downtime; your earlobes will heal quickly after the procedure.
Regardless of the cause of your misshapen earlobes, Dr. Stong can create the size and shape of earlobes you desire. With many years of experience as a facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Stong understands the best techniques for reshaping facial features and uses his artistic talents to create natural results. If you desire an earlobe lift or reduction, you can trust his skills to create symmetrical, youthful earlobes that will match your ears and other facial features.
