Are your earlobes causing you to become self-conscious? If so, you’re not alone. More and more people are turning to earlobe repair surgery to correct earlobes that have been damaged due to trauma or that have been stretched from years of wearing heavy earrings. Over time, your earlobe, just like other parts of your body, can begin to sag making your facial appearance look older. Earlobe repair, offered at Pollard Plastic Surgery, can quickly return your earlobe to its natural appearance giving you back your confidence and youthful lobes.
No one wants their ears to be the main focus. And they shouldn’t be, they should help to compliment the rest of your facial features. It is unlikely if you wear earrings, that you haven’t experienced a time or two where your earring got caught on something. This is extremely common and if the catch is severe enough, the earlobe can be ripped and in need of repair.
No matter the reason why your earlobe is damaged, earlobe repair can help; and now is the perfect time to do it.
What to Expect with Earlobe Repair
Earlobe repair is a quick and straightforward procedure that is performed in-office using local anesthesia. Once the area is numb, incisions are made in the area where the earlobe is torn or stretched. The tissue is reshaped and the incisions are closed with very fine stitches.
There is no downtime necessary following your procedure. The treatment area should be kept clean and dry for two to three weeks to prevent an infection or adverse reaction. Once your ear has fully healed, around eight weeks, it may be re-pierced.
Take Proper Care to Prevent Repeat Damage
It’s important that you take care of your newly repaired earlobes, so you don’t re-injure them. Avoid heavy earrings as they will just start the sagging process all over again. Consider using patches that stick to the back of your earlobe and help to provide support, so the piercing doesn’t become enlarged.
