earlobe reduction

Did somebody say earlobe reduction?

When you think plastic surgery, ears probably aren’t the first thing that cross your mind…unless you happen to be one of the millions of people unhappy with their ears. While it may not be a “sexy” procedure, it sure is a common one. There are a lot more people out there mending their ears than you may think.

As with all procedures, big or small, you’ll want to find the right plastic surgeon for you. An earlobe reduction may seem like a minor procedure, it requires experience, finesse and understanding to obtain the aesthetic outcome you’re hoping for. Dr Usha Rajagopal is a leading San Francisco Bay Area cosmetic surgeon with more than 20 years of experience. She believes that an informed patient is the best patient.

Odds are, if you’re unhappy with your earlobes (wether you’ve experienced damage to them or you think they’re too big), you have a number of questions. In order to help you be as knowledgable as possible, we found this article about earlobe reduction by Nancy Weinberg Simon. Nancy’s article should help you get some useful and insightful information about a common procedure known as earlobe reduction. It’s a great read for anyone unhappy with the appearance of their ears or considering earlobe reduction surgery. Here’s a little preview of the article:

“‘Do Your Ears Hang Low?” is a song that you recall from your childhood. Though this tune is intended to bring on laughter, it’s not as funny if you’re one of many who are displeased with their ears. Being dissatisfied with your appearance can greatly affect self-esteem, confidence, general attitude towards life and the way you deal with other people in your day-to-day life.

If your earlobes do hang low or are not how you would like them and you find yourself hiding them by styling your hair to attempt to cover them or even just wishing they were different, it may be time for you to consider earlobe reduction surgery.’

Liposuction vs Coolsculpting

When it comes cosmetic surgery, there are always options. When it comes to the choice between liposuction vs CoolSculpting ™, the decision can be tricky. Both procedures are safe and effective if performed by a certified plastic surgeon and both can have long lasting results. In this article by Heather J. Furnas MD for smartbeautyguide.com she lays out how each procedure is done as well as the advantages and disadvantages of both procedures.

Here’s a preview of that article addressing liposuction vs coolsculpting:

“There are many easy ways to temporarily camouflage small bumps such as Spanx, tunics, and jackets, but when clothing is no longer enough to hide those excessively fleshy areas, liposuction sounds like a good option. But so does CoolSculpting™. They both sound good, but what’s the difference and which one is better?

The quick answer is while they are both effective for people who have proven to be good candidates, for some patients, one option is better than the other.”
