I just finished two surgeries in the last two days with both patients undergoing combined facelift surgery with otoplasty (ear reshaping). It just so happens that both of these patients from San Diego desired reshaping of their ears as well as facial rejuvenation of the lower face and upper neck. In both cases, we were able to easily reshape the ears in the midst of the face lift procedure. When performing a facelift surgery, we have to make incisions around the ears to lift the face. During this exposure, the ears are quite accessible to cosmetic reshaping. In one of the patients we also reduced the size of the earlobes as part of the cosmetic ear reshaping. Although not a common combination in facial plastic surgery, it can definitely be done as evidenced by my last two days in surgery!
