Who Is a Good Candidate for Earlobe Repair?

Earlobe Repair While your ears may not be the center of attention when it comes to your face, they are an integral part of framing your beauty. However, for various reasons, your ears can become damaged and stand out during conversations and photos. This can be distressing and potentially damaging to your confidence. So what can you do to finally bring your facial focus back where it belongs? Thankfully, earlobe repair is a great cosmetic surgical procedure to help bring your ears back into balance. Let’s explore what makes someone a good candidate for earlobe repair.

What Is Earlobe Repair?

Earlobe repair is simply the general term for any cosmetic procedure that repairs the ears to a more desired and ‘normal’ appearance. While what is normal for each person is unique, earlobe repair is catered to each patient’s needs and restoring functionality. So each person’s earlobe repair will likely look different.

Who Is a Good Candidate?

Before we take a closer look at specific situations, it’s important to have some base-level requirements before you consider earlobe repair. It’s always a good idea to have some best practice guidelines before any cosmetic surgery is performed. It’s best not to be currently healing from any other surgeries, healing from being sick, or currently battling a demanding condition. This is to ensure a smooth and easy recovery.

However, besides basic health concerns, everyone who has damaged and deformed ears is a good candidate for earlobe repair. Some situations that may require earlobe repair are things like torn earlobes from injury, stretched or torn earlobes from gauges, and other deformities.

Cosmetic Ear Surgery Can Help You Hold Your Head High

If you are self-conscious about the appearance of your ears sticking out from your head or another deformity, otoplasty – cosmetic ear surgery – can help. Otoplasty is trending in popularity as an avenue to correct unattractive ear appearance in adults. In the past, otoplasty has been used to treat children born with misshapen ears due to a birth defect. Otoplasty is now being sought out by adults who have lived with an embarrassing ear look throughout their lifetime.

Cosmetic Ear Surgery – Otoplasty for Adults

Unattractive ears are emotionally difficult for adults in today’s world that is obsessed with looks. Some people have gone through extreme lengths to hide their ears by styling their hair or wearing hats. This is a classic lack of self-confidence in one’s appearance due to a condition that can be remedied by cosmetic ear surgery.

Major and minor external ear deformities are corrected in an outpatient, in-office procedure:

  • Protruding ears that stick out too much
  • Cupped ear – a very small ear
  • Lop ear – the tip bends forward and downwards
  • Shell ear – the outer curve and rim is missing
  • Over-large or stretched earlobes
  • Highly creased or wrinkled ear lobes
  • Spock’s ear – a pointed top and an extra fold
  • Ears too large or too small
  • Excessively large or torn ear piercings

Adult Otoplasty Surgery Fundamentals

While general anesthesia is recommended for children undergoing otoplasty, many teens and adults can tolerate the procedure with a local anesthetic and sedative.

Otoplasty is performed as follows:

  • An incision is made in the natural fold behind the ear
  • Cartilage and skin are trimmed and adjusted to reshape the ear
  • Sutures are placed to hold the ear in position during the healing process
  • Dressing is placed over the ears to hold them in place

In conjunction with otoplasty, other surgical procedures can be performed:

  • Facelift
  • Eyelid surgery
  • Chemical peel
  • Laser skin resurfacing
