Earlobe Repair Surgery has been gaining popularity for those who have stretched or torn earlobes and for those who have outgrown the aesthetic appeal of “gauges”. Our Board Certified Plastic Surgeons have extensive experience with stretched and torn earlobes, as well as lip gauges and the removal of dermal piercings.
Earlobe Repair in Milwaukee and Waukesha
If you’re one of the many people who are interested in redefining your piercings, you’re in luck! Earlobe Repair Surgery restores the appearance of earlobes that are stretched from heavy earrings, earrings being torn, gauges, or sudden trauma.
This procedure is considered an outpatient procedure and can be done under local anesthesia right here in our clinics.
Patients often wish they had gone through with Earlobe Repair sooner rather than later. A personal consultation with one of our Board Certified Plastic Surgeons is the first step for anyone considering Earlobe Repair surgery.
If you are bothered by the appearance of your ears, Otoplasty, or ear surgery, is a procedure that can pin ears that protrude too far from the head or shape ears to improve aesthetic balance and harmony. If you are having trouble knowing which route you need to take, talk with one of our experts today!
The Earlobe Repair Surgery Procedure
Before the procedure, all sides of the ear are cleaned with an antiseptic solution and a local anesthetic is injected around the tear. An incision is made around the damaged earlobe, separating it into anterior and posterior flaps.
The anterior and posterior flaps are sutured together and the wound is dressed in a sterile bandage.
Earlobe Repair Recovery
After Earlobe Repair, most patients are able to drive themselves home and return to work either the same day or the following day. The area should be kept clean to avoid infection.
If absorbable sutures are not used, sutures will need to be removed 1-2 weeks after completion of the repair procedure. Re-piercing can be done anywhere from 2-6 months after the procedure.
To make this procedure accessible to all our patients we provide Financing options.
