Earlobe Reduction – Earlobe Repair

Introduction


Prominent ears can disrupt the natural balance of the face and attract unwanted attention, including teasing and bullying. Individuals with enlarged ears suffer from self-consciousness and low self-esteem even more when their ears begin to sag and lose their elasticity from intentional stretching with gauges. Fortunately, Dr. Barrett offers several types of earlobe reduction and repair surgeries to correct these cosmetic issues and improve the overall position and appearance of your ears.
