Earlobe Repair Surgery

Earlobe repair in Atlanta can address torn or stretched earlobes. Over time, repeatedly wearing heavy earrings or gauges can lead to structural weaknesses, resulting in a split or tear. Additionally, some patients have hereditary cosmetic issues related to their earlobe that they would like to address, while others experience damage to their earlobes due to an accident. At Astra Plastic Surgery, we offer earlobe repair for natural-looking results.

What Is Earlobe Repair?

Our ears are one of the most visible parts of our body, and the earlobe is one of the most distinctive anatomical features of the ear. The earlobes can become stressed or split due to a variety of different circumstances. A torn earlobe is one of the most common cosmetic repairs necessary.

Earlobe tears can be caused by heavy earrings pulling apart the lobe, extensive piercing of the earlobe in extreme positions causing structural weakness, or other trauma to the lobe brought on by sports or accidents. Our plastic surgeons in Atlanta specialize in the delicacy of earlobe repair. Earlobe damage can quite naturally cause distress to those patients who want to restore the natural symmetry of their ears. At Astra Plastic Surgery, we offer simple and effective earlobe repair surgery techniques that can solve these problems.

What Are The Benefits Of Earlobe Repair?

Unlike other parts of your body that are hidden beneath clothing, your ears are always visible, which can make you self-conscious if you have a split or torn earlobe. Regardless of how the damage to the earlobe came about, it can quite naturally cause significant emotional distress to patients who want to continue wearing earrings or who would like to restore symmetry to their earlobes. Addressing this issue, earlobe surgery in Atlanta is a simple and effective procedure that can be utilized to help you repair earlobe tears or trauma.

By taking this simple step, you can be on your way to an improved appearance and a renewed sense of self-confidence. During your consultation for earlobe repair, Dr. Killingsworth and his plastic surgery team will examine your earlobes, review your medical history with you, and suggest a treatment plan of action so that you can achieve your personal goals for earlobe repair.

What Can I Expect During Earlobe Surgery?

At Astra Plastic Surgery, your earlobe repair procedure is routinely performed under local anesthesia with optional sedation, depending on your needs. After planning the procedure and marking the adjustments, a small amount of lidocaine numbing solution is deposited to ensure comfort.

Earlobe correction surgery is carried out in a quick and simple procedure that reconstructs the earlobe while addressing those aspects of healing and assuring there will be minimal scar tissue following your recovery. The extent of the rupture helps to determine the type of repair required. In some instances, small flaps are used to redesign the earlobe. Absorbent sutures are typically used as well, which, because of their color and small size, are well camouflaged and hidden.

What Can I Expect After Earlobe Repair?

Following earlobe repair in Atlanta, your earlobe will be stitched shut. Typically, the stitches can be removed around a week after the procedure. Once the ears are fully healed, patients can get their ears pierced if they choose to. However, patients should avoid getting their ear pierced in the same spot to lessen the risk of the earlobe splitting again.

Mild discomfort is common following earlobe repair. However, this can be treated by using over-the-counter pain medications. It is recommended that patients refrain from showering until 24 hours after their earlobe repair to avoid the risk of developing an infection.



What Results Can I Expect From Earlobe Repair?

Although some results of earlobe repair will be immediately visible, patients can notice full results once their stitches have been removed and the earlobes have fully healed. The results of earlobe repair are permanent. However, it is possible to re-damage the earlobes after they are healed. Patients should avoid heavy earring earrings that may stretch or rip the earlobes. Instead, patients should wear small stud earrings and avoid any activity that may cause additional damage to the earlobes.

During your consultation for earlobe repair in Atlanta, Dr. Killingsworth and his plastic surgery team will asses the damage to your earlobes and give you insight on what results you can expect after the procedure.
