What is Earlobe Repair?
Earlobe repair is a cosmetic surgery that is performed to correct any sagging, looseness, or tears in the earlobe. Earlobe repair is often the recommended treatment when an earlobe is injured. These injuries are typically caused by earrings, and may include earrings being ripped out of the ears or simply by the long-term wear of heavy earrings. In any case, the cosmetic changes caused by these injuries can be significant.
An earlobe repair procedure corrects the shape of the earlobe by reshaping the ear cartilage. Afterwards, patients can enjoy an improved appearance in the ears and a restored ability to wear earrings.
Am I A Good Candidate for Earlobe Repair?
If you have suffered from an injury to the earlobes or stretching of the earlobes, you may be a good candidate for earlobe repair. However, the best way to determine if you are a suitable candidate for earlobe repair is to schedule a personal consultation with Dr. Mohadjer.
During your consultation, you and Dr. Mohadjer will discuss your cosmetic goals in order to determine if earlobe repair is a good fit for you. At this point, we will be able to help you schedule your treatment or find a suitable alternative.
What is the Earlobe Repair Treatment Like?
The earlobe repair procedure is often performed using local anesthetic for your safety and comfort. The treatment process will vary depending on your condition. In most cases, the earlobe can be repositioned and stitched to correct its shape and appearance.
What is the Earlobe Repair Recovery Process Like?
After your earlobe repair procedure, you may experience some swelling or soreness for a few weeks. During the first few days, it is important to avoid sleeping directly on the ear or participating in other activities that may aggravate the ear during the healing process. However, you should be able to resume most activities immediately following your appointment. Within a few months, residual side effects will fade and you will be completely healed.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect from Earlobe Repair?
After earlobe repair, you can expect the shape of the earlobes to be significantly improved. In fact, within a few weeks of your procedure, you can have your ears re-pierced so that you can continue to wear earrings. The results from earlobe repair will be permanent, assuming you do not receive an additional injury to the earlobe.
