What is earlobe reduction surgery?
Earlobe reduction is a surgical procedure that aims to reshape or reduce the earlobes. The objective of this cosmetic plastic surgery is to repair damaged, torn, or sagging earlobes.
The weight of heavy earrings or trauma from pulled earrings may cause the earlobes to stretch, tear, or increase in size, to an extent that requires surgical intervention. An earlobe cleft can occur from an earring that completely tears through the earlobe.
The aging process can also result in elongated or enlarged earlobes.
Who Is an Ideal Candidate for Earlobe Reduction Surgery?
You are a good candidate for earlobe reduction surgery if your earlobes are torn, damaged, stretched, or sagging. Alternatively, you may have suffered trauma to the ear. If any of these cases apply to you, it may be worthwhile to consider this cosmetic surgery procedure.
In addition, you are an ideal candidate for earlobe reduction surgery, if you:
- Have earlobes that are too large
- Have an earlobe cleft from earring trauma
- Are not satisfied with the shape of your earlobes
What Does Earlobe Reduction Surgery Consist Of?
Earlobe reduction surgery is generally performed under local anesthesia, and takes under an hour to complete.
The specific technique used will vary, depending on the nature of the correction required. Temporary sutures will be placed and removed at a later date.
You can chose to re-pierce your ears in a few months, after proper healing has occurred.
How Much Does Earlobe Surgery Cost?
The cost of earlobe surgery generally depends on the treatment plan that is developed for you. Other adjunctive procedures, such as a facelift, will have an impact on the final cost.
During the consultation, Dr. Alain Azzi will perform a physical exam, and will review your specific needs. A member of our patient care coordination department will subsequently provide you with details, regarding the cost of an earlobe surgery procedure in Montreal.
