More About Earlobe Repair with Dr. Doshi
Earlobe surgery is a reconstructive plastic surgery procedure performed to restore the appearance of earlobes that have been damaged or disfigured.
Torn earlobe surgery typically requires only local anesthetic, making it a simple, in-office procedure. There are different techniques that can be performed to either close a wound, reconnect a split earlobe, attach or detach the earlobes, redistribute tissue, and/or reshape the ear lobe. The method of earlobe repair Dr. Doshi will use depends on how much tissue was lost, if any, and the nature of the earlobe damage.
To repair unwanted holes in the ear, skin is removed from around the hole and the hole is then stitched closed. If more significant reconstruction is needed to repair the earlobe, small flaps are often used to redesign the earlobe.
