Earlobe Reduction Beverly Hills

Enlarged earlobes can be constant source for embarrassment for some individuals. The ears are quite visible in women and men with shorter hair. Women with longer hair avoid wearing their hair up or in a ponytail because they feel self-conscious about their ears. These patients often request ear reduction to improve their overall self-confidence.

Description

It is possible that your ears have always been enlarged (congenital), they grew with age, or it could be because they became long and stretched due to heavy earrings. The practice of using ear gauges permanently stretches and distorts the ear lobe. Ear reduction surgery is indicated for all of these reasons; however the specific surgical technique to correct the deformity might be slightly different.

Surgery

Earlobe surgery is a very artistic surgery. The specific surgical technique to perform earlobe reduction will be selected on an individual basis. Surgery can be performed under local anesthesia in our Beverly Hills Plastic Surgery Center with minimal down time. Some sutures will be placed on the inside, but most of the stitches are on the outside, and these will have to be removed on one of your follow-up visits. Risks of surgery include bleeding, infection, delayed wound healing, irregularity along the border of the ear, and need for additional revisions. If you have a history of forming keloids, you are not a good candidate for earlobe reduction surgery. The healing time takes a few weeks. You will not be able to re pierce your ears for about three months after the procedure. The scars on the ear tend to stay red and raised for about three to six months, but with time will fade and flatten, and they will become less noticeable. Overall, earlobe reduction surgery is well tolerated in Los Angeles.

    I have hated my tattoo for years and wanted to get it removed. After a painful experience with a local laser center, I sought out a different provider and found Dr. Dass. He uses the PicoSure laser instead of the traditional Q-switched laser. My first session with him was painless from beginning to end. He numbed the entire area! His staff are caring and warm. I am so lucky I found Dr. Dass!*

    So…I was in Los Angeles for a conference this summer and realized that I needed liposuction because I’ve been too busy with work. I decided to have it done while I was out there since Beverly Hills is the plastic surgery capital of the world. I had a consult and immediately booked Smartlipo on my belly and love handles. It was perfect because I had the weekend to recover before flying back home. Its like night and day, I’ve gone down like 4 inches on my waist and the love handles are completely gone. Two thumbs up, way up.*

    I had to write a review for Dr Dass, because I absolutely love the results from my breast augmentation . He spent time with me and I didn’t feel rushed. Went with the Sientra implants for my piece of mind. The recovery was not as bad as I thought it was going to be, and he saw me for all of my follow-ups. I highly recommend seeing him.*
