For those who have long earlobes, their ears can be a source of embarrassment. Typically, these patients have felt self-concious about their ears for a long time.
How is earlobe reduction done?
Depending on the problem, earlobes can be reduced by removing skin from the bottom of the ear leaving the scar along the bottom of the ear, or the earlobe can be wedged, leaving a vertical scar in the earlobe. For people who stretched out their earlobes with guages, the wedge excision is preferred. For those born with longer earlobes, Dr. Sheila Nazarian prefers the incision to be hidden along the bottom of the earlobe. Either way, the earlobe tends to heal very nicely.
What is the recovery time?
Earlobe reduction surgery tends to heal without much discomfort. Icing and pain medication is necessary for 1-2 days. Keeping the head elevated for 3 nights is also recommended. Antibiotic ointment is used as dressing along with a bandaid.
What if I tend to get keloids?
Dr. Nazarian performed keloid research and is up-to-date with methods to reduce the risk of getting a keloid again.

I totally recommend her to anyone who is looking for an excellent Dr. If I would of known about her before, I would of done this procedure years ago.This is my first time writing a review, but I had to share this experience because I know there are people looking for a good Dr they can trust. I am truly very happy with Dr . Nazarian. Again thank you very much for doing such a great job.
Dr. Nazarian is the a 5 star plastic surgeon! I had a growing scalp mass above my left ear, kinda like a cyst, she told me it was called lipoma. Anyway she removed the cyst in her office even when I was told by other doctors that it had to be done at a hospital which is more cost full and inconvenient for your wallet. She’s a great doctor and definitely recommend anyone to visit her office, her receptionist is on point and is very kind, helpful, and welcoming when visiting the office or calling about your appointment.
Besides being a great surgeon, Dr Nazarian carries a line for PREGNANT women called Spa Momma which is made-in-the-USA with no lead, phthalates, formaldehyde, propylene glycol, and no pregnancy-contraindicated aromatherapy oils!!!!!! I am obsessed with the body oil and the body scrub! I was having some major itching issues and I tried everything but nothing really helped. Then I tried the itchies body oil and it was the first relief I had had in months and I have no stretch marks!!!!!!!! Dr Nazarian is so up to date and science based and is willing to take time and help you out no matter what you issue is!!! I love her professionalism and recommend 110%!
