There are several reasons why an individual may wish to undergo earlobe repair surgery. Whether to correct large or elongated earlobes or to repair a deformity that has occurred due to heavy earrings, it is important to find a skilled doctor who specializes in earlobe repair. Earlobes are typically one of the major focal points on the human face, and a torn, deformed or split earlobe can attract unwanted attention. Likewise, an unskilled surgeon may leave the patient with earlobes that appear less attractive than they did before the surgery.
Many people seek cosmetic earlobe repair surgery to correct deformities of the earlobe that have occurred as a result of torn earlobes or enlarged holes from heavy earrings. Some people also have torn or split earlobes due to having their earrings unexpectedly yanked out of their ears. In other cases, the earlobe has not split, but the hole is quite elongated and enlarged from wearing heavy earrings for many years. All of these issues can be resolved in earlobe repair surgery, using a variety of techniques to match your ear’s condition. The procedure length averages 20 to 30 minutes and can be done under local anesthesia in our office.
