Earlobe repair surgery is less popular than other procedures, mostly because many people don’t know a solution exists!
Reasons For Earlobe Repair
You may want to correct larger holes left after removing piercings or earrings from the earlobe. You can also opt for an earlobe repair procedure to correct elongated earlobes and split earlobes caused by gravity, collagen loss, anti-aging, or just general wear and tear. Also, certain genetic structural abnormalities, a buildup of keloid scars and certain surgical procedures can affect the shape and aesthetics of your earlobe. Earlobe repair is one of the best ways to reconstruct the soft tissue of your ear and restore the shape of your ear. Earlobe repair can be achieved through surgical and nonsurgical earlobe repair techniques.
Nonsurgical Earlobe Repair
Nonsurgical earlobe repair requires the injection of a dermal filler like JUVÉDERM® to constrict any large holes in your ear and provide support for earrings to sit higher on the lobe. This cosmetic procedure is not time-consuming and takes a few minutes. Instant results can be seen.
The cost of nonsurgical earlobe repair varies based on how much filler is requested. Contact our office for customized pricing.
Surgical Earlobe Repair
The surgical earlobe repair procedure is used when the defect is too large to be corrected by nonsurgical means. The procedure involves the removal of excess skin of the lobe and closure of wounds through sutures. Most clinicians remove the original ear hole in the middle. Any excess skin or scarring will also be removed during your procedure. While this surgery will require stitches, scaring from your repair will be minor. You will follow-up with your doctor one-two weeks after surgery to make sure everything is healing properly. The lobe can be pierced again in the near future. The procedure takes less than an hour, and you are discharged immediately. The surgical earlobe repair downtime is around 3 or 4 days.
Although variable, surgical earlobe repair cost can range from 400 to 1500 dollars, depending on the complexity of the procedure and structure of the earlobe. It is essential to consult a board certified cosmetic plastic surgeon before deciding which procedure to opt for correcting any earlobe defect.
