What Can Ear Lobe Repair Surgery Correct?

Ear lobe repairOur office performs otoplasty, also called ear surgery, for cosmetic or reconstructive purposes. Ear lobe repair surgery is a type of otoplasty that is designed to repair stretched, deformed, or torn ear lobes.

If you’re struggling with ear lobe concerns from a previous injury or wearing gauges, Dr. Kimberly Carpin is here to help. What can ear lobe repair surgery actually correct? There are two primary issues patients come to us with: stretched or torn ear lobes.

Stretched Ear Lobes

Many people opt for ear lobe repair surgery because of stretched ear lobes. Usually, those stretched lobes happen when people wear heavy earrings or gauges for extended periods of time.

This stretching can make your ear lobe longer, making it a real challenge to wear ear jewelry without slipping out. If you rush into increasing your gauge size or go for a super big gauge, your earlobes can wind up with extremely large holes that need surgically repaired.

Torn Ear Lobes

Torn ear lobes are another common issue that people often get fixed with ear lobe repair surgery. These tears usually happen because of injuries or accidents involving earrings or gauges.

Let’s not forget classic earring mishaps. Small children may grab your earrings, or they may become caught in something. The force from the accident may be enough to split or tear your ear lobe.

Whenever your ear lobe is torn, it may not heal perfectly. This could result in scarring or misshapen ear lopes that need a surgeon’s touch to restore.
