Earlobe Reduction

Are you uncomfortable with the appearance of your earlobes? It’s becoming a more common problem in men due to trauma caused by a piercing, or stretching of the earlobes, genetics or sometimes just getting older. Some of us were born with big ears, and we just don’t like them. Often, the things we thought wouldn’t effect us when we were young like stretching our earlobes, might effect us as we get older. Job opportunities can be missed and people might take you less seriously. Although we would love to believe this doesn’t happen in today’s world, it does. Earlobe Reduction surgery may be the perfect answer for you.

Elongated earlobes can detract from the symmetry of the face. It’s a simple, minimally-invasive surgery that can make you feel back to normal.

How is it done an Earlobe Reduction performed?

Earlobe Reduction can take approximately one hour, depending on the complexity of the area. The procedure is done under local anaesthetic  A wedge-shaped piece of the earlobe is removed, and the edges are re-aligned and stitched back together. The sutures will remain in the area for approximately 7 days.

This procedure is performed at our clinic in our state-of the-art operating room located at The First Glance Aesthetic Clinic and Surgery Centre.

What’s the recovery period after an Earlobe Reduction?
