Dr. Solomon has noticed a dramatic increase in patients looking to reduce the size of their earlobes. Although this requires a procedure related to Otoplasty, it is much simpler and less invasive.
In the past I performed ear lobe reduction with facelifts but now patients are seeking this procedure on its own. I have many patients tell me that the size and shape of their earlobes is too large and hangs down. Reduction of the earlobe size is carried out in my office with the aid of my C02 laser. We cut out a portion of the lobe and then repair it with tiny sutures. Patients generally have almost no downtime. With women wearing beautiful jewellery on their earlobe its important that the shape and size of the lobe is proportional and youthful.
