Frequently Asked Questions

What is Earlobe Correction?

The split or tear on the earlobes as a result of heavy earrings for a prolonged period of time or by an accident can be repaired with the help of Earlobe Correction. An Earlobe Correction is performed as a remedy for disfigured earlobes. An individual can get the ear pierced again if they wish to after a few months of correction procedure. Apart from repairing torn earlobes, the Earlobe Correction procedure can also be performed on individuals with overly large earlobes. The plastic surgeon decides whether an individual is a good candidate for the procedure or appropriate results can be achieved or not.

Who are to be consulted for Ear Lobe Correction?

  1. Plastic Surgeons are always consulted who will be performing the procedure. 
  2. The patient can discuss the bothering cause in the earlobes and expectations after the procedure to the Plastic Surgeon. 
  3. The Plastic Surgeon also can ask the individual about medical history and examine the ear lobes and can also take pictures of the earlobe for medical files and future references. 
  4. The individual can also ask the surgeon on how he/she s expecting the look of the earlobes and the doctor can let them know whether the expectations can be met or not.

How is the procedure performed?

  1. The patient is expected to arrive at the facility at least half an hour before the procedure. 
  2. Local anesthesia is then administered to the patient and marks are made carefully to outline the area to be treated according to the operation plan.
  3. In the case of torn or split earlobes, the tissue surrounding the tear is removed and the open edges are pulled together and sewed. The scar after the procedure will always be visible. 
  4. In the case of overly large earlobes, the incisions to be made and the scar after the procedure depends on the type of reconstruction. To reduce the size of the lobe, an incision will be made on the edge of the lobe. 
  5. Once the reconstruction is done the edges of the wound will be stitched together with absorbable stitches and then it is taped with a plaster.

What are the aftercare and recovery for Ear Lobe Correction?

  1. After half an hour to an hour of Earlobe Correction procedure, the patient is free to go home as it is a minor procedure. 
  2. As anesthesia starts to wear off, the patient may experience pain and irritation but it can be managed. During the 1st few days of the surgery, the patient also experiences pain and pulling around the ear lobe as the skin still has the tension. There even can be swelling, sensitivity or even numbness for 1-2 weeks after the procedure. 
  3. These symptoms will vanish after a few weeks and the patient shouldn’t be alarmed as it the body’s natural healing process. 
  4. During the first check-up after the surgery, the patient will be given a scar reducing cream that should be applied after the scarred wound is healed properly. The application of this cream to close to the wound increases the healing of the wound nicely.

What are the results of Ear Lobe Correction?

  1. As after every surgical procedure, the body takes time to heal. The scar will fade over the progression of the healing process and although the wound is completely healed, the scar may still be there. 
  2. The scar usually takes around 1 to 1.5 years to heal completely and the application of scar cream may even increase the healing process. 
  3. The piercing can be made in the lobes after few months if the patient wishes to.

What are the risks and complications associated with Ear Lobe Correction?

Possible risks with Earlobe Correction Repair are:

  1. The anesthetic effect is unsatisfactory
  2. Blood clot under the skin
  3. Adverse reactions after the sedation
  4. Hemorrhage
  5. Permanent visible scars injury to the underlying skin
  6. Sensitivity alterations
  7. Infection
