What is Earlobe Reduction?
To Dr. Breister Ghosh, no insecurity is too big or too small to address if that's the path you choose to take. Earlobe reduction is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that many patients choose to receive when they find their earlobes have gotten droopier over time or have stretched after years of wearing heavy earrings. Some patients also turn to earlobe reduction to help their ears better complement their natural facial features. Talk to Dr. Breister Ghosh about whether earlobe repair is right for you during your private consultation.
What are the Benefits of Earlobe Reduction?
There are many benefits of receiving earlobe reduction surgery with Dr. Breister Ghosh and her medical team, including:
- Addresses stretched or droopy earlobes
- Reduces the size of the earlobes to complement your natural features
- Ears may be re-pierced following repair and healing
- Permanent results
- Boosts overall confidence
How is Earlobe Reduction Performed?
Your earlobe reduction will be performed by Dr. Breister Ghosh in our comfortable office. Dr. Breister Ghosh will first numb the earlobes with a local anesthetic. She will then make a series of incisions to reduce the size of the earlobe and reshape the remaining skin. The skin will then be sutured together to form a round, natural-looking earlobe. The entirety of your earlobe reduction may take up to 1 hour to complete for both ears.
What Can I Expect After My Earlobe Reduction?
Following your earlobe reduction, swelling and tenderness around your treated areas will be normal. Dr. Breister Ghosh will provide you with a detailed set of post-operative care instructions to follow for a swift and easy recovery. We often encourage our patients to ice their treated areas often to reduce excess swelling and bruising. You may return home immediately after your procedure. A follow-up appointment with Dr. Breister Ghosh is required 10-14 days following your earlobe reduction for suture removal.
How Much Will My Earlobe Reduction Cost?
The cost of your earlobe reduction will likely vary depending on the extent of treatment needed to help you achieve your desired results.
