Earlobe Reduction Surgery
Many people may not realize until later in life that earlobes can stretch and sag over time. Wearing earrings, talking on the phone and the normal aging process may result in longer earlobes as you get older. To reshape and shorten stretched earlobes, Dr. Stefan Shuaib offers earlobe reduction surgery through Dallas Facial Plastic Surgery Center in Irving, TX.
Earlobes are often adorned with earrings and gauges for a stylish appearance. The soft tissue in the earlobe is easily pierced and heals quickly. Wearing jewelry on the earlobes can add weight, stretching the skin and tissue downward. As you get older, the earlobes lose their firmness and skin elasticity. Many individuals may notice that their earlobes are larger than they were in their youth, which can impact appearance. For more youthful appearing ears, plastic surgery can be used to shorten and reshape the earlobes.
Reshaping and Lifting Long Earlobes
Like many “lift” cosmetic surgeries, earlobe reduction, or lobe lift, is used to remove stretched skin and restore a firmer, youthful shape. An incision is made behind the earlobe to access skin and tissue. A small amount of skin or tissue may be removed, and the remaining skin and tissue are carefully reshaped to create earlobes that are balanced and match the other facial features. If the earlobes have stretched piercings, these can be repaired or closed, and patients are able to continue to wear earrings after their ears heal.
Dr. Stefan Shuaib is a double board certified facial plastic surgeon with extensive experience performing facial rejuvenation procedures. If you have larger or aging earlobes, Dr. Shuaib can evaluate the best way to reshape and lift your lobes for an approved appearance. Using advanced techniques, he can carefully hide incisions for discreet, natural-looking results.
