What is Earlobe Repair?Our ears are one of the most visible parts of our body, and the earlobe is a distinctive anatomical feature, that can become stressed or broken due to a variety of different circumstance, most frequently due to excessively heavy ear-rings or piercing-induced earlobe stress. A broken or torn earlobe is one of the most common cosmetic repairs necessary, and it can be due to very heavy earrings pulling apart the lobe, extensive piercing of the earlobe in extreme positions causing structural weakness and tearing, or other trauma to the lobe brought on by sports or accidents. Most cases of torn earlobes can be corrected safely through delicate surgical repair techniques undertaken by board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Christopher Killingsworth of Atlanta Aesthetics. Earlobe damage can quite naturally cause distress to those patients who want to restore the natural symmetry of their ears, and fortunately, at Atlanta Aesthetics there is a simple and effective procedure that can solve these problems.

What is the Procedure for Earlobe Repair?At Atlanta Aesthetics, your earlobe repair procedure is routinely performed under a 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 assure your 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 that there will be minimal scar tissue following your recovery. The extent of the rupture and the ear lobe repair needs helps to determine the type of repair required, so schedule your consultation now with Dr. Killingsworth to find out more about the best approach to earlobe repair in your case. In some instances, small flaps are sometimes used to redesign the earlobe, and typically absorbent sutures are used as well, which, because of their color and small size, are well camouflaged and hidden.
