Can I have ears attached to face during facelift?

Dr. Dean Kane Q & A Q. I will be having a face and neck lift and wonder if it’s possible to reduce the size of my ear lobes and have them attached to my face at same time? A. ​”​Pixie” earlobes, those attached and stretched down along the back of the jawline may be associated with aging or genetics. They are considered to be less youthful than a pert but hanging earlobe. Long hanging earlobes are also associated with aging and may be thinned from a heavy earring. ​During the facelift procedure, the earlobe is released from its attachment to the cheek skin. It is at this point that the earlobe may be modified and inset to create a more youthful appearance with that of the facelift. Consider the skill and talent of your surgeon. Consult with and use a well experienced and Board Certified Plastic Surgeon or ENT Face Surgeon. ​All the best!
