What Causes Torn Earlobes?
Torn earlobes can occur in a number of ways. Some of the most common causes are lacerations, tears, bites, and other forceful motions. The elasticity and vascularity of most ears allow individuals to stretch them far beyond their standard size without the risk of tearing. However, stretching your ears beyond 8mm causes them to enter “the point of no return.” Past this level, stretched ears lose the ability to shrink back to regular size. Once this happens, tears become much more likely.
Torn Earlobe Repair
At Behr Laser & Skin Care Center, we happily provide surgical torn earlobe repair treatments to those in need of lobe restoration. A typical earlobe repair surgery takes less than an hour to complete. This process first involves an examination of the size and elasticity of your earlobes. After getting a thorough assessment, Dr. Behr applied a local anesthetic to prevent discomfort and the surgery begins. The surgery itself involves making several incisions and then suturing earlobe skin back to return it to normal size.
What to Expect During Your Visit
When you visit our center, we will do all we can to ensure the best results. Our procedures are carried out with absolute precision and care, utilizing the best practices and anesthetic to minimize discomfort. In addition to the anesthetic, we also offer the Pro-Nox™ system, which allows you to regulate your Nitrous Oxide intake. This gives you complete control over your pain management and anxiety.
Results of Torn Earlobe Repair
After your torn earlobe repair procedure, it may take about three months for your scar to heal. However, the treatment itself requires no downtime and no medication is needed after surgery. Some aching and mild discomfort may be experienced as your body heals. As with any surgical procedure, earlobe surgery does carry some risks. Some risks you should be aware of include bleeding, infection, and heightened sensitivity.
