Earlobe Repair

Dr. Drehsen and Dr. Nalluri use the utmost precision to help individuals whose earlobes’ appearance and function has been compromised. Earlobes are very vulnerable to being split or torn from heavy jewelry or accidental tugging. Expanded earlobes alter the appearance and function. Once damaged or stretched, the lack of remaining elasticity prevents earlobes from regaining their prior look, leaving a less than desired appearance of sagging, drooping, or a large hole. This can leave individuals very self-conscience, as well as render them unable to wear jewelry because of the obstructed lobe.

Eliminate Unsightly Tears

You should consider earlobe repair surgery if you have any of the following issues:

  • Torn earlobes
  • Split earlobes
  • Expanded earlobes (gauged earlobes)
  • Elongated earring canals
  • Asymmetrical earlobes

How Does This Happen?

Most commonly, injuries to the earlobe occur after years of heavy jewelry or an accidental tug or pull on piercings. Tears prevent you from wearing many post earrings and cause many people to feel self-conscience by the appearance of uneven rips and tears. Expanders cause severe thinning and distortion of the earlobe tissues which cannot be corrected without surgery. The severity of damage varies from patient to patient, but Dr. Drehsen and Dr. Aponte’s years of experience yield great results in repairing torn, split, and expanded earlobes. The good news is, earlobe repair surgery uses only a local anesthetic to maximize patient comfort. The procedure is followed by very little pain, and it almost always dissipates within the first 24 hours. With no down time, this outpatient procedure will have your ears fixed in no time!

Regain Functionality & Confidence!

Post procedure, Dr. Drehsen and Dr. Nalluri’s results offer a minimal, smooth, and an even scar that continues to fade for up to six months. In most cases, his reconstruction efforts provide a viable earlobe able to handle a re-piercing that can withstand moderate weight. Maximize your look with minimally invasive earlobe surgery and regain confidence by letting your polished presence, not your scar or tear, demand attention.
