If you have damaged earlobes and are starting to feel self-conscious about your appearance, talk to Dr. Quereshy about the benefits of earlobe repair surgery. The earlobe repair procedure is a relatively simple procedure that can restore the earlobes without extensive surgery. We use a simple technique to sew the tissues back together, and you can enjoy results shortly after surgery. Patients left with torn or stretched earlobes after an accident or from wearing heavy earrings are good candidates for this procedure.
How We Repair Torn Earlobes
Ear lobe repair surgery is a minimally-invasive procedure that can be performed right in our office under local anesthesia. We will make an incision near the area that has been damaged to remove any excess skin and cartilage. We can then sew the two sides of the earlobe together with sutures, triggering the natural healing process around the treated tissues.
A dressing may be applied to help with the recovery process, and we may recommend taking antibiotics to prevent infection. There is very minimal discomfort associated with this procedure and you can return to work right away. We can remove sutures about one to two weeks after surgery, and the healing is complete after about three to six months.
Reasons to Undergo Earlobe Repair Surgery
Many patients that have torn or damaged earlobes come to us for surgery that will restore the damaged tissues. This procedure is safe and effective for restoring torn earlobes and can even strengthen the edges of the earlobes to prevent future damage. It can be performed on both men and women of any age. If you have stretched your earlobes from years of wearing heavy earrings or no longer want gauged earlobes, surgery can reverse the damage and create a very natural appearance.
