Earlobe Repair Atlanta
Torn Earlobe Surgery
Earlobe repair surgery can address torn or stretched earlobes. Over time, repeatedly wearing heavy earrings or gauges can lead to structural weaknesses, resulting in a split or tear. Additionally, some patients have hereditary cosmetic issues related to their earlobe that they would like to address, while others experience damage to their earlobes due to an accident. At Killingsworth Center for Plastic Surgery, we offer earlobe repair for natural-looking results.*
WHAT IS EARLOBE REPAIR?
Our ears are one of the most visible parts of our body, and the earlobe is one of the most distinctive anatomical features of the ear. The earlobes can become stressed or split due to a variety of different circumstances. A torn earlobe is one of the most common cosmetic repairs necessary. Earlobe tears can be caused by heavy earrings pulling apart the lobe, extensive piercing of the earlobe in extreme positions causing structural weakness, or other trauma to the lobe brought on by sports or accidents. Most cases of torn earlobes can be corrected safely through delicate surgical procedures undertaken by double board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Christopher Killingsworth. Earlobe damage can quite naturally cause distress to those patients who want to restore the natural symmetry of their ears. At Killingsworth Center for Plastic Surgery, we offer simple and effective earlobe surgery techniques that can solve these problems.*

In order to address this issue, there is a simple and effective procedure that Dr. Killingsworth can utilize to help you repair earlobe tears or trauma.*

HOW IS EARLOBE REPAIR SURGERY PERFORMED?
At Killingsworth Center for Plastic Surgery, your earlobe repair procedure is routinely performed under local anesthesia with optional sedation, depending on your needs. After planning the procedure and marking the adjustments, a small amount of lidocaine numbing solution is deposited to ensure comfort. Earlobe correction surgery is carried out in a quick and simple procedure that allows Dr. Killingsworth to reconstruct the earlobe while addressing those aspects of healing and assuring there will be minimal scar tissue following your recovery. The extent of the rupture helps to determine the type of repair required. In some instances, small flaps are used to redesign the earlobe. Absorbent sutures are typically used as well, which, because of their color and small size, are well camouflaged and hidden.*
