Stretched or Torn Earlobe Repair by Dr. Rubinstein

Many people consider cosmetic or corrective surgery for their facial areas such as the eyes, lips, and neck. However, over time, people can develop damaged, disfigured, or stretched earlobes, as well.

Earlobes are especially vulnerable to injury because they don’t have bone or cartilage for support; they are entirely skin and fat. Wearing heavy earrings, wearing gauges, and simple everyday trauma can cause damage and make earlobe repair surgery necessary. Sometimes even a seemingly small disfigurement can be very bothersome.

Stretched and torn ear lobes can quickly, easily, and safely be repaired with a minimally invasive procedure. A wide range of common ear lobe issues can be addressed, and afterward, you will be more confident with the look of your ears.

The cosmetic process used for earlobe repairs works with the skin and underlying fat layers without needing implants or other more invasive treatments.

Overview of an Earlobe Repair Procedure

At Laser Cosmetic & Surgery Specialists in Newburgh, earlobe surgeries are commonly performed to address stretched piercings or complete tears. Dr. Rubinstein, a board-certified plastic surgeon with expertise in facial surgery, tailors each procedure to meet the unique needs of the patient. Evaluation during the consultation determines the extent of repair required, whether it’s a partial correction or a more complex reconstruction for a fully torn earlobe. Utilizing local anesthesia ensures patient comfort throughout the process, whether it’s a minor correction or a more extensive reconstruction.

Expert in eyelid surgery, Dr. Rubinstein offers brow lift and blepharoplasty procedures to rejuvenate the upper face. These common cosmetic eyelid surgeries are designed to address sagging brows and excess skin around the eyes, providing a refreshed and youthful appearance. During the consultation, prospective patients receive personalized recommendations based on their facial anatomy and aesthetic goals. With board-certified expertise in oculoplastic surgery, Dr. Rubinstein ensures optimal outcomes and a smooth recovery process for patients seeking facial rejuvenation through surgical and non-invasive procedures.

Restore your Earlobes to a natural shape

For earlobe repair, surgical techniques are employed to restore a natural appearance. This may involve excising excess tissue, reshaping the lobe, and employing sutures to achieve optimal results. Dr. Rubinstein may also recommend hyaluronic acid fillers to enhance volume and reinforce the repair, ensuring a durable outcome that reduces the risk of future complications.

In gauge repair cases, a meticulous approach is taken to reshape the earlobe and suture it for optimal healing. While the procedure typically takes about an hour, variations in surgery time may occur depending on the extent of repair needed. With the expertise of board-certified plastic surgeons like Dr. Rubinstein, earlobe restoration offers patients a simple yet effective solution, providing natural-looking results and minimal downtime for recovery.

Surgical Earlobe Repair Recovery

Earlobe repair surgery that includes additional treatment areas such as the cheeks, chin, jaw, or neck is naturally more involved and the recovery time on these will vary. But, for an isolated earlobe repair, the recovery time is relatively short.

Dr. Rubinstein will prescribe pain medication, if necessary, for the first week or so, and his team will follow up with each patient to ensure proper healing. Normally, no bandages are necessary and stitches are removed in about a week. Earlobes have an ample blood supply which allows for better results and a rapid recovery.

Recovery is usually quick and easy, with minimal post-procedure restrictions needed. Patients are advised to keep the repaired earlobe away from water; avoid showers for 24 hours and refrain from submerging the ear in the bathtub, hot tub, or pool for up to 6 weeks. Patients are also asked to avoid strenuous exercise for 4 weeks. Most patients are cleared to return to work on the same day or the next day.

You will be asked to follow Dr. Rubinstein’s detailed post-operative instructions to promote healing from your earlobe repair surgery.

Earlobe repair Side Effects

Earlobe repair surgery typically involves minor incisions and is considered a simple, minor procedure in the realm of cosmetic surgery. As such, side effects such as swelling and bruising are generally minimal compared to more invasive procedures. While temporary discomfort, redness, or bruising may occur post-surgery, the risks of bleeding, scarring, or infection are relatively low. Nonetheless, it’s important to follow post-operative instructions carefully to optimize healing and minimize any potential complications.

Earlobe Repair Procedure Results

Following earlobe repair surgery, patients typically experience immediate improvements in appearance, as the procedure often does not require bandages upon completion. While initial swelling and bruising may occur, these gradually subside over time, revealing natural-looking results as the healing process progresses.

To maintain optimal outcomes, patients are advised to refrain from wearing heavy earrings or ear gauges, particularly during the initial recovery period. Dr. Rubinstein recommends waiting at least three months before considering re-piercing the ears and suggests opting for lightweight earrings to minimize stress on the newly repaired earlobes. Ensuring proper placement of re-piercings, at least 3mm away from the scar tissue, is essential for long-term success. By adhering to these post-operative guidelines, patients can enhance the longevity of their earlobe repair surgery results and achieve the desired aesthetic appearance.

Earlobe Repair Surgery FAQ

How long will the earlobe surgery results last?

Reconstructive earlobe repair surgery is permanent. Patients can see results as long as they take care not to stretch the earlobes again and also protect their ears against trauma and injury down the road.

What is the difference between earlobe repair and traditional plastic surgery?

Earlobe repair is plastic surgery. However, in addition to the aesthetic enhancement, damage or deformity is corrected. Although it is minimally invasive, it requires a trained and experienced surgeon to be performed safely and correctly.
Dr. Rubinstein’s approach to torn or gauged earlobes repairs the ear tissue and the damage with minimal scarring, giving most patients the ability to wear lightweight earrings again within a few months. Earlobe repair surgery most often results in a more attractive, rejuvenated, and youthful appearance.

What other surgeries are done simultaneously with earlobe repair surgery?

Many other procedures are commonly performed at the same time. During a private consultation, Dr. Rubinstein will review all your options and help you determine the cosmetic procedures that can help accentuate your newly repaired earlobes. Dr. Rubinstein prioritizes safety for his patients.

Will a torn earlobes surgery give me scars?

Yes, there will likely be a small scar after your surgery. When skin is damaged, the body attempts to repair it by forming new collagen. This new tissue has a different texture and is not as strong as regular skin.
Scarring depends on many things, including the extent of the ear damage and how prone you are to making scar tissue – as some people scar more than others. People who are repairing damage from multiple piercings might have more than one scar.

Is the procedure painful?

The treatment involves small injections, and any discomfort is usually minimal. A numbing agent can be used to enhance comfort during the procedure.

Are there any side effects?

Common side effects are mild and can include localized pain, swelling, or bruising at the injection site. These usually resolve quickly on their own.
