EARLOBE REPAIR SURGERY
Damaged or misshapen earlobes can be a source of self-consciousness that leads people to hide their ears with hair or other means. RGV Cosmetic Surgery & Vein Center offers earlobe repair surgery so that patients can feel comfortable with their appearance again. We offer this and other cosmetic procedures to women and men living in McAllen, Brownsville, the Rio Grande Valley, and all of South Texas.
What Is Earlobe Repair Surgery?
The earlobes are a fragile part of the body that can easily be torn due to injury, often because of an earring being ripped out of the ear. They can also become stretched as a result of gauge ear piercing or long-term usage of heavy earrings. Whatever the cause, earlobe repair surgery at RGV Cosmetic Surgery & Vein Center can be used to restore the earlobes to their original shape. Correcting the shape of the earlobes with ear surgery can help patients feel much better about their appearance and be proud to show off their ears.
How Is Earlobe Repair Surgery Performed?
The technique used during your earlobe repair surgery will depend on the current condition of the ears. Typically, the procedure involves the trimming and suturing of the earlobes to permanently correct their shape. This procedure is performed under local anesthetic so that patients are comfortable throughout the entire procedure.
What Results Can I Expect From Earlobe Repair Surgery?
The results from your earlobe repair surgery will be visible immediately, although minor swelling may affect the results until it fades a few days after treatment. The results from earlobe repair surgery are permanent, unless a future injury occurs.
What Is Recovery Like Following Earlobe Repair Surgery?
Earlobe repair surgery is a fairly minor surgical procedure, and there is no downtime or recovery required after treatment. Patients are able to resume work and other normal activities immediately after treatment, although special care will need to be taken so as not to disrupt the sutures or the healing process. During your consultation with Dr. Rodriguez, he will explain what you can expect regarding recovery, as well as any specific instructions to be followed.
