If you have decided for earlobe reduction and are seeking a skilled ear plastic surgeon near the Bethesda area, Maia Plastic Surgery near Chevy Chase, MD, is the answer. The earlobes are a noticeable component of the ears, especially since many men and women adorn them with earrings. This fatty tissue is not essential for ear function, but it does play an important role in ear and face appearance. When earlobes are too long or large, they can draw unwanted attention. To create more balanced and attractive ears and lobes, ear plastic surgery can be performed. Maia Plastic Surgery offers earlobe reduction surgery at our clinic near the Bethesda, MD, area.

Earlobes come in a variety of shapes and sizes, just like the rest of the ear. In some cases, the earlobes may be an odd shape or overly large based on genetics. Earlobe reshaping or reduction can usually be accomplished in an outpatient surgery with only local anesthesia. Our board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Munique Maia, can perform earlobe reshaping to create a balanced appearance to the earlobe for those with misshapen or large earlobes.

Reshaping or Reducing Long Earlobes

Not all large or long earlobes are genetic. Earlobes can stretch and change, becoming noticeably larger or longer. Like all tissues in the body, the earlobes change with age. There is less collagen, and the tissue and skin can stretch, resulting in longer, floppy earlobes. Earlobe reduction surgery can reshape the earlobe into a more youthful and aesthetically-pleasing shape. Dr. Maia can ensure the earlobe matches the ear size and shape, and most people can retain their ability to use earrings after the earlobe heals from surgery.

Are you embarrassed or self-conscious of your larger earlobes? Dr. Maia and our team at Maia Plastic Surgery can perform earlobe reduction or reshaping surgery at our medical center near the Bethesda area. To learn more, contact our plastic surgery practice today to schedule your appointment for an earlobe reshaping consultation with Dr. Maia at our clinic near Chevy Chase, MD.

Dr. Maia and her staff are incredibly professional and truly empathetic. They’ve done a beautiful job with the treatments that I’ve gotten and I look forward to coming to the office every single time.

Dr. Maia deserves more than 5-stars! I’m thrilled with my results and I’m less than 3 months post surgery. Dr. Maia is confident and kind, and not at all pushy like other plastic surgeons. I was overly impressed the morning of the procedure. The surgical and hospital staff know her well! They were ready for her and put me at ease while I was getting settled in the OR. I appreciate the team in Dr. Maia’s office for their patience and care. They are just as calm as Dr. Maia.

Mid 40s male who’s always had nasal breathing issues and a dorsal bump. I finally decided to do something about it with a septoplasty/rhinoplasty combo. I met with a few doctors but Dr. Maia stood out. She instilled confidence, and I’m extremely pleased with the results. The surgery was straight forward, and the swelling was surprisingly light. A week later the cast was off and I was on the short road to recovery. Honestly, if I had known it was this easy I would have done it earlier. Thanks Dr. Maia!


I recently had Dysport injected by NP Kristina, and I could not be happier with the outcome. I can already see some of the results few days post-injections! I love how quickly Dysport softens the wrinkles, without giving you the "frozen look". Just in time for the upcoming holidays! Earlier this year, I did 3 Morpheus-8 treatments to my face and neck, and I am CONSTANTLY being complimented on how good my skin looks. Worth every penny! I also had fillers injected by Dr. Maia and Kristina. Dr. Maia did my under-eye, which I am obsessed about... what a change! Kristina injected my lips, chin, jawline, and cheeks. My face looks more proportional and guess what.... I FINALLY HAVE A CHIN :) Thank you, Dr. Maia, Kristina, and the Team. You're the best. I will surely be back for more.

I had tummy tuck and muscle repair with Dr. Maia 3 months ago. I couldn't be happier. I am 44 and I got my 25 year old body back after tummy tuck with Dr. Maia. The initial consult was great. The surgery was fast. The post op care was excellent. Dr. Maia and team assured me that I had great post recovery and everything going okay. I had no complication whatsoever. The incission was very small and low which I love. She is amazing and caring surgeon. He teams are very responsive and wonderful. I am very happy with the result and everything.
