Piercing, tearing or trauma may have stretched or torn your earlobes. However, you may not have to live with these problems forever. Dr. Leo Farrell, a board certified plastic surgeon in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania, may be able to restore the appearance of your ears with an earlobe repair procedure.
Why Consider Earlobe Repair?
As mentioned, your earlobes may have become stretched or torn as a result of piercing, accidental, or trauma from injury. If one or both of your earlobes are somehow damaged, earlobe repair surgery may be for you. Contact Dr. Farrell to learn whether earlobe repair could improve your appearance.
How Is Earlobe Repair Performed?
Earlobe repair surgery may be simpler than you expected. Dr. Farrell will carefully excise some skin near the relevant area. Then, he’ll apply sutures. You may or may not need to get them removed at some point, depending on the kind of sutures that are used.
Don’t worry too much about pain during this procedure. You’ll receive local anesthesia, which should numb the relevant area.
What Is the Earlobe Repair Recovery Process Like?
The recovery process for earlobe repair may also be simpler than you anticipated. Dr. Farrell may advise you to apply an ointment to your wound. He may also suggest silicone gel injections or sheeting.
There will be a permanent scar following your procedure, but it will lighten and fade over time. Most patients do not mind a minor scar if it means fixing the damage to their earlobe.
For full details on what you can expect during your recovery from earlobe repair in Mechanicsburg and advice on how to best manage this process, speak with Dr. Farrell.
When Will You Notice Earlobe Repair Results?
Speak with Dr. Farrell about your desired results and when you might expect to notice them. He should be able to provide an idea of what your earlobe(s) will look like afterward and a timeline for noticing the results.
