Earlobe Reconstruction Plastic Surgery in Gainesville, FL

Earlobe repair surgery is a common procedure needed by both men and women for a variety of reason. If you are seeking Gainesville plastic surgery, look no further than the best plastic surgeons at Poser Plastic Surgery Center to help.

Earlobe Surgery

There are many reasons patients seek cosmetic surgeons in Gainesville to repair their earlobes. An earlobe that is pierced in the wrong place or is stretched from wearing earrings that are too large can can cause problems later in life, aside from becoming unsightly as you age. The “gauges” many men and women have placed in their ears leave large holes when removed, and many patients seek assistance in restoring a normal-sized, symmetrical look to both lobes. Trauma to the earlobe can also leave patients with disfigured lobes. Whatever the cause, Gainesville cosmetic surgery wouldn’t be complete without the procedures to repair this damage. Whether your earlobes have become damaged due to trauma, birth defects, piercings or other fashion trends, the Gainesville plastic surgeons at Poser Plastic Surgery Center are here to help restore your look of beauty.

What to Expect During Earlobe Repair

The earlobe repair procedure can be performed in our office while the patient is under local anesthetic. Surgical repair techniques designed to handle this delicate situation are used after lidocaine is placed on the skin to ensure no pain for the patient. The right technique will be decided on beforehand after the best plastic surgeons at Poser Plastic Surgery Center have a chance to assess the individual’s hope for after-surgery appearance. Earlobe plastic surgery is quick as an incision is cut through the damaged lobe and the edges are sutured shut so they can heal. Patients are sent home the same day with appropriate medications to be applied during recovery.

Side Effects / Risks of Surgery

After the surgery, earlobes may swell and patients could experience discomfort. These side effects should go away fairly quickly. To avoid infection, patients will wear a dressing to protect their earlobes.

Recovery Time After Earlobe Repair Surgery

Sutures can be removed in a matter of weeks, and ears can eventually be pierced again if the patient desires that. Patients should be able to resume their normal activity in 2-3 days.

Complementary Procedures

If you also desire help with aging earlobes, our surgeons can reshape saggy lobes while repairing too large holes in the lobe. Poser Plastic Surgery Center, offering Gainesville cosmetic surgery, can help you feel confident when showing off ears or wearing earrings again. Lobes can be made more symmetrical, creating a more balanced, youthful look.
