Ideal Candidates For Earlobe Repair
Cosmetic earlobe repair is ideal for patients of any age; however, it is usually done on patients who have a torn earlobe from a traumatic accident, an earring, or a gauged ear. If you need to fix the appearance of your earlobe, Dr. Bodian and his talented staff can perform surgery or filler injections on-site in our facility. Whether you're looking to repair a small tear or a larger injury, we can help you attain the natural-looking results you are seeking. For medical ear piercing, we advise that children be seven years or older. This allows the ear to grow big enough for correct earring positioning and ensures your child is old enough to sit still during piercing and perform instructed aftercare.
Earlobe Repair Technique
Earlobe repair surgery is performed safely under local anesthesia to numb the area. During surgery, the cartilage on one or both ears will be sutured back together to close up and mend the area(s). Once surgically corrected, the ears will be bandaged so they can heal properly. If you are having your earlobes plumped with a dermal filler, such as JUVÉDERM, Dr. Bodian or a member of his team will clean the injection site before placing injections around the perimeter of your earlobe, adding volume, youthfulness, and strength to your ear.
For a medical ear piercing, we will clean the piercing site and apply topical anesthesia to minimize discomfort. Next, our trained technician will perform the piercing in both ears using a medical-grade, disposable cartridge. This may involve a stinging or pinching sensation, but it is short-lived.
What to Expect After Earlobe Treatment
When the procedure is complete and it is safe to leave our office, we will send you home to rest and recover. Dr. Bodian or a team member will provide you with detailed instructions on how to care for your (or your child's) ears following surgery or piercing. In general, you should maintain an upright position and avoid laying on the ears for a few days. Dr. Bodian will let you know if follow-up visits are needed to assess the healing of your ears. If you received a dermal filler only, you can return to your normal routine following injections. You can expect to see improvements to your ears within about 7 – 10 days, and results typically last up to one year.
