A Different Kind of Procedure: Ear Surgery for a More Youthful Appearance

December 28, 2011 Posted in: Face Procedures, Huntington, NY Plastic Surgery
We all know the most popular plastic surgeries women turn to when it comes to achieving a more youthful appearance—Facelifts, Eyelid Surgery and Breast Lifts.  But, do you ever wonder how much your ears may be aging you?  According to a recent report from The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), earlobe surgery may be able to make you look years younger. The article quotes BeautyInTheBag.com’s Wendy Lewis.  According to the ASAPS report, Lewis told The Daily Mail newspaper, “Gravity takes its toll on earlobes – they droop like chins and breasts do, and can make you look older. Years of wearing heavy earrings also cause the lobe to get stretched out of shape…” Did you know your earlobes said so much about your age?  Read on to find out about more about ear surgery.

An Introduction to Ear Surgery

Ear surgery—also known as otoplasty—is a surgery used to correct or enhance the appearance of the ear.  According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, over 29,000 otoplasty procedures were performed in 2010 alone.  Although there are several ear issues that otoplasty can address—such as large or protruding ears—the procedure is often used to correct earlobes that are large, stretched or torn.  Ear surgery can also correct earlobes with large creases and wrinkles. Torn earlobes are another common concern among women, particularly among those who wear large or heavy earrings.  Thankfully, Earlobe Repair is an option.  Earlobe repair is a quick, in-office procedure performed under local anesthesia.
