You may be a candidate for an earlobe reduction if you have earlobes that have become wide and elongated. The goal is to have shortened or smaller-appearing earlobes.
This procedure is done on an outpatient basis and usually while you are under local anesthesia. An earlobe reduction involves removing skin of the earlobes. This is done in a variety of ways, leaving a different scar in each situation. The exact way the skin is removed will be determined by your plastic surgeon. The skin is sutured together after removal of the excess skin.
