Can An Earlobe Be Lengthened?
Q: Dr. Eppley, I tell you my case, I had surgery first with a lobuloplasty doctor for the use of expansions in my large ears.which amputated part of the lobe, I went to a second doctor who performed an otoplasty and joined part of the lobe to my neck. The truth is that I don’t feel good about the results tbecause I feel that my ears are not proportional to the face or my nose. The first photo is of the right ear and the second is of the left ear (I think it is the worst one)
I appreciate your time and my question would be if there is any possibility of lengthening the ear, could it be a graft?
A: While ears can be shortened they can not be lengthened. There is no graft that can be done to lengthen or expand an earlobe.
