Dr. Semira Bayati, a board-certified plastic surgeon in Orange County, was recently featured in OC Weekly as an expert source to discuss the growth in popularity of ear surgery to correct loose, saggy earlobes that have begun to droop due to heavy earrings or gauged ears. Dr. Bayati says she was excited for the opportunity to share her professional experience with patients who may be self-conscious about their ear shape and assure them about the surgical possibilities to correct misshapen earlobes.
In a recent edition of OC Weekly, Dr. Semira Bayati appeared to discuss the latest trend in Orange County plastic surgery procedures that has taken off at her practice. The article discusses the growing popularity of earlobe rejuvenation and otoplasty, or ear surgery designed to reshape and lift drooping or protrusive ears. Focusing on a wide variety of cosmetic enhancements from mommy makeovers to breast augmentation in Newport Beach, Dr. Bayati says she has seen more and more patients interested in correcting loose earlobes that have begun to sag because of heavy earrings and aging skin.
Dr. Bayati and the OC Weekly article nicknamed the earlobe rejuvenation procedure a “lobe job,” referring to the treatment’s ability to lift and enhance the appearance of one’s ears in the same way as a “boob job,” or breast augmentation. She says as patients age, gravity begins to have an effect on the elasticity of skin and ears lose much of their fat tissue. Dr. Bayati also says other damaging occurrences such as the tearing of an earlobe due to hefty earrings or the removal of ear gauges may necessitate a procedure like ear surgery in Newport Beach to restore the natural shape and resilience of the earlobe.
Whether patients are looking to correct years of sagging and stretching from heavy earrings or gauges or to reshape their natural earlobe in order to achieve a more aesthetically-pleasing appearance, Dr. Bayati says she recommends consulting with a board-certified plastic surgeon before undergoing any procedure. She adds that a procedure like ear surgery in the skilled hands of an experienced surgeon can help patients improve self-confidence..
