Earlobes can easily become deformed as they are highly prone to stretching and sagging. Aging, traumatic ear piercings or detrimental earring use are all typical causes of earlobe deformation.
Earlobe rejuvenation is a surgical procedure that aims to rectify any visible damage, such as ear stretching, tearing, or sagging that is caused by gauging, earring use, traumatic injuries, or congenital deformities. There are different types of earlobe deformities, and the surgical techniques to be used will depend on the size and severity of damage to the area.
Earlobe irregularities can disrupt the harmony, balance, and overall aesthetics of the face. Undergoing this surgery offers subtle improvement to the patient’s appearance, leaving them with earlobes that are youthful, ideally shaped and well-proportioned with the ears and other facial features.
An earlobe repair procedure is typically performed under local anesthesia. In the case of minor stretch and tearing without loss of volume, Dr Mirmanesh will carefully and meticulously repair the damaged skin with sutures to create the ideal earlobe shape.
In cases where the damage is more severe, a more complex and extensive surgery is usually required which may involve fat transfer to repair age related volume loss. Dr Mirmanesh will sculpt the earlobe by strategically rearranging the remaining healthy tissues into the ideal size and shape and add fat if needed into the necessary areas.
