Patient Info

66 years old
Dr. Inessa Fishman


The 66-year-old woman shown came to the Aviva Plastic Surgery practice interested in earlobe reduction. She felt her earlobes had stretched with time and heavy earring wear, and she wanted to improve their appearance.

Our Facial Plastic Surgeon Dr. Inessa Fishman treated the stretched earlobes with an earlobe reduction, also closing the too-low earlobe piercing at the same time.  The patient had this minor surgical procedure performed with the help of injectable numbing medicine, and while awake; she is shown 2 months after the earlobe reduction and re-piercing.

Earlobe reduction is one of the most common small surgical procedures in our practice.  A lot of patients have stretched or too-long earlobes from trauma, children pulling on earrings, inflammatory changes, or sleeping in earrings.

About Earlobe Reduction Procedure

Overly long earlobes can look disharmonious and can make a person appear older than they really are.  Too-long earlobes can also “drag down” the face, making it look overly long or heavy as well.  While genetics can contribute to overly long or prominent (stuck out) earlobes, some earlobes may stretch due to the use of heavy earrings, gauging, or trauma.  An earlobe reduction procedure can transform the stretched or too-long earlobe into a better formed, more pert lobe that is more harmonious with the rest of your facial features.  Our facial plastic surgeon Dr. Inessa Fishman commonly performs earlobe reduction as a standalone procedure, or in combination with earlobe repair or neck lift surgery.Learn More About Earlobe Reduction
