Ear Lobe Repair Alpharetta

Repair of damaged ear lobes is a surgical procedure that’s being performed more often than ever. Trauma, years of heavy earrings, or gauges in the ears can leave your lobes saggy and unsightly, or even torn all the way through.

Because of the close proximity to the face, torn or damaged ear lobes can attract negative attention. Earrings are often a normal part of a patient’s look or outfit which can become problematic in the setting of enlarged holes, rips, or tears. The ears are also very important in balancing the face and are often not noticed until theres a problem.

​This is one of our most requested procedures in our practice and is rating very highly by our patients. ​

  • Ripped or torn ear lobes
  • Malformed ear lobes from birth or trauma

PROCEDURE DETAILS

Dr. Robb Jr. will make some marks on your skin with a marker to act as a guideline during the procedure.

Measurements are often made to ensure symmetry is obtained.

Ear lobe repair takes about 30 minutes to complete for both ears.

​Vaseline is applied to the surgical sites and occasionally a dressing is placed on the ears.

AFTER THE PROCEDURE

The numbing medicine wears off in one to two hours after the procedure. Tylenol normally is enough to prevent discomfort but pain medication can be prescribed if needed. We believe in keeping our patients as comfortable as possible during the recovery period.

No dressing over the ears is required- the vaseline protects the wound and helps prevent scabbing.

Some oozing from the surgery sites is normal as is some swelling of the ear lobes. Cleaning instructions will be given prior to leaving the office. Keeping vaseline over the surgical sites will decrease complications and improve cosmesis.

​Sutures will be removed in 1 week.

RESULTS

Results are immediate and should last a lifetime.

Recovery is simple and quick in most cases.

Patients who have this procedure done rate it highly. This is a very straightforward procedure that restores the form, function, and appearance of the ear lobes.

If desired, Dr. Robb Jr. will perform ear piercing for no additional charge.
