Newport Beach, CA — Recently featured in several articles for OC Weekly and Your Beauty Industry, Orange County plastic surgeon Dr. Semira Bayati says ear surgery and earlobe repair has become a popular procedure at her practice. As a result of heavy earrings and natural aging, Dr. Bayati says more and more patients are coming to her in hopes of restoring the vibrancy and elasticity of their ears.
Ear surgery is a cosmetic enhancement procedure designed to reduce wrinkles and sagging in a patient’s earlobes that has become particularly popular in the field of aesthetic surgery. Receiving attention from a detailed presentation during a recent conference for the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (BAAPS), a growing number of patients are requesting procedures to tighten their earlobes and rejuvenate the skin on their ears, according to Dr. Bayati. At her center for plastic surgery in Newport Beach, Dr. Bayati says the procedure has become so popular, many have begun to nickname the treatment a “lobe job,” after the shorthand slang for breast augmentations known as a “boob job.” As people age, she says their ears begin to droop and sag naturally, an occurrence which is only compounded by the wear and tear of heavy earrings or gauged earlobes.
Much in the way a Newport Beach breast lift can enhance the fullness and perkiness of a patient’s breasts, Dr. Bayati says earlobe surgery tightens and gives a more youthful appearance to one’s ears. She says her practice offers several traditional treatments for repairing earlobes that have been torn or stretched due to natural aging or accidental tearing of one’s ears. Using injectable fillers, Dr. Bayati says surgeons can rejuvenate a deflated earlobe and smooth out wrinkles and excessive skin. She says ear surgery in Orange County can also be performed by closing the wound or gap surgically, redistributing tissue, and reshaping skin to match natural ear contours.
Whether patients are looking to enhance the appearance of their ears and reduce signs of aging or correct a torn earlobe from accidental damage, Dr. Bayati says she strongly urges patients to seek the expertise and consultation of a board-certified plastic surgeon. She says patients who take the time to research their surgeon extensively will benefit from the skilled hands and experience in restoring youth to their appearance.
