Who are some of the best otoplasty and/or earlobe reduction surgeons
Although I cannot provide you with specific names, I would suggest that you start with the American Society of Plastic Surgery and/or the Aesthetic Society of Plastic Surgery to find the offices of board-certified plastic surgeons in your area.
Generally speaking, the repair of the stretched or pierced ear lobes is a great procedure that can restore the ear lobe to a “normal” appearance". The resulting scar is most often very fine. Care must be taken during this procedure to avoid reducing the size of the ear and/or creating a notch/ depressed appearance in the area of the rim of the ear lobe. It is usually done under local anesthesia, with minimal discomfort and recovery time; it is associated with a very high patient satisfaction rate. I hope this, and the attached link, helps.
