Earlobe reconstruction involves cosmetic surgery on the soft tissues of the ear to improve its appearance. Reduction may be employed to shorten the length of an elongated earlobe and / or to narrow the width of an overly widened earlobe.
The Aging Process
In older adults, lengthening of the earlobes can impact appearance, which some individuals may want to improve by excising tissue.
Candidates for Earlobe Reduction
You may be a candidate for earlobe reduction if the appearance of your ears draws unwanted attention, detracts or distracts from your other facial features, or if you find the appearance of your ears unsatisfactory. In particular, earlobe reduction may be employed to improve the size, symmetry, proportion and balance of the earlobe in relation to the rest of your face.
In addition to earlobe reconstruction cosmetic surgery, Dr. Boswell of Body Aesthetic Plastic Surgery & Skincare Center in St. Louis, Mo., also offers facial rejuvenation procedures, including facelift and eyelid lift surgery, to rejuvenate the face or bring a sense of harmony to facial features.
