Can Ear Reduction Make My Ears Down To Two Inches In Height?
Q: Dr. Eppley, How realistic would getting the measurement for both ears at 2 inches exactly be? I do understand that extra unilateral scapha underneath the helicle rim could be removed, but would reducing the lobe so that it connects with my skin be a complexity? (as seen in demonstration with hand) Appreciate your time.
A: The question is not whether you can remove essentially the entire earlobe (which is devoid of cartilage) but whether the small vertical scar line that will result is an acceptable tradeoff. Because you have an attached earlobe (as opposed to unattached) any reduction of earlobe length will leave a vertical skin closure line beneath it.
