What makes someone a good candidate for ear procedures?
When you think of all the plastic surgery procedures that exist today, ear surgery is not often the first thought that comes to mind for most people. However, in the past several years, ear procedures have grown in popularity.
Why? We have found that there are many different reasons why people choose to undergo ear surgeries. Though most of them are typically for aesthetic reasons, such as for patients who want to reshape their ears so that they sit back further and do not stick out, we have also helped patients who have experienced ear damage to the lobes.
The latter type of surgery is what we refer to as a split earlobe repair. A split earlobe repair generally occurs in patients who are athletes and hurt themselves in action or in patients who in the past had a bad ear piercing performed or wore gauged earrings.
No matter the reason or the damage, it’s important to always have a repair done on earlobes that have split open to return them to their original state.

Split earlobe repairs are a surgery we perform often. A quick and inexpensive procedure, a split earlobe repair takes a few weeks to fully heal, and it’s important to be careful during athletic activity and avoid putting excessive pressure on your earlobes for 1-2 weeks after surgery.
If your ear surgery doesn’t involve a split earlobe repair, we can help determine the best procedure for your needs during your consultation. By meeting with you and examining your ears, we will be able to understand your goals to give you the best results possible.
