Why Do My Earlobes Get Longer as I get Older?

Q: Why have my earlobes gotten bigger as I've gotten older?

A: Secondary to the loss of volume in the skull itself, the ears and nose appear to grow larger.  It is possible under local anesthesia to reduce the size of the earlobe with a recovery time of approximately one week.  By removing the excess skin and fat along the edge of the earlobe, it is possible to reduce the volume with no visible scar.

We frequently do this during a face-lift but we also do it independently. Sometimes subtle changes can make a major difference in your overall appearance!
