Earlobe repair is a common procedure that is done under local anesthesia. Earlobe surgery can correct protruding or abnormally shaped ears stretched out or torn.

 

Earlobe correction surgery can also fix droopy earlobes caused by gravity and aging. It is relatively simple with minimal downtime. Dr. Vagotis can address earlobes that need repair due to the following cosmetic abnormalities.

Elongated earlobes due to aging:

As we age our earlobes tend to elongate creating the appearance of an aging face. Earlobe shortening or reductions are an ideal procedure to create a more youthful appearance.

Earlobe repair is a relatively quick procedure that takes around 15-20 minutes. The torn or unnecessary skin is excised and sutured together during the procedure. Scarring from the surgery is almost always imperceptible after healing, and the ears can even be re-pierced within 6-8 weeks after the surgery. Re-piercing can be done to the right or left of the scar, as the scar itself is weaker than the surrounding tissue, so it will tear more easily.
