Big Ear lobes can be a component of Macrotia Big Ear Deformity. Earlobe enlargement by itself unbalances the proportions of the normal ear. Reduction of the lobes can be done alone or as a component of a more extensive otoplasty.
Dr. Bermant prefers this Medial Based reduction to preserve an earlobe separated from the cheek. The removed tissue scar hides along the crease of earlobe and cheek. The scar extends under the shadow of the contour of the lobe. Lateral Based Surgery to Reduce Earlobes has a different look and can be part of a more extensive reduction otoplasty.
