Earlobe Repair Beverly Hills – Earlobe tears, earlobe gauges

Earlobes are the normal skin appendage at the lower end of the cartilaginous ear. The ears are frequently pierced for earrings and accessories. Earrings place the earlobes at risk for getting damaged.

Earlobe Tears

Simple tears in the earlobe can result from earrings being pulled out. The injury results in earlobe clefting or a bifid earlobe. This type tear will not heal and close by itself. Surgical repair of the earlobe will be necessary to repair an earlobe tear.

Earlobe Gauges

Earlobe gauges, or earlobe plugs, became a popular practice some time ago. As trends come and go, people are likely to desire removal of the gauges. After the gauge is removed, the hole will shrink little bit over several months. However, the earlobe will not completely revert to its pre stretched state, and will be permanently deformed. People are quite surprised that removal of gauge earrings, does not always allow the hole to close like a standard ear piercing. In some cases the earlobe deformity can be quite severe. The ear reconstruction for closure can be quite complex.

Surgery

Earlobe surgery is a very artistic surgery. Earlobe repair, for both torn earlobes and gauged earlobes, can be performed as an outpatient surgery under local anesthesia. The cost of the surgery will be dependent on the extent of the deformity. Risks of surgery include bleeding, infection, delayed wound healing, irregularity along the border of the ear, and need for additional revisions. The healing time takes a few weeks. You will not be able to re pierce your ears for about 3 months.

If you have an earlobe deformity, earlobe tear, or gauged earlobes, and need them repaired, call our Beverly Hills Plastic Surgery Center today.

    I have hated my tattoo for years and wanted to get it removed. After a painful experience with a local laser center, I sought out a different provider and found Dr. Dass. He uses the PicoSure laser instead of the traditional Q-switched laser. My first session with him was painless from beginning to end. He numbed the entire area! His staff are caring and warm. I am so lucky I found Dr. Dass!*

    So…I was in Los Angeles for a conference this summer and realized that I needed liposuction because I’ve been too busy with work. I decided to have it done while I was out there since Beverly Hills is the plastic surgery capital of the world. I had a consult and immediately booked Smartlipo on my belly and love handles. It was perfect because I had the weekend to recover before flying back home. Its like night and day, I’ve gone down like 4 inches on my waist and the love handles are completely gone. Two thumbs up, way up.*

    I had to write a review for Dr Dass, because I absolutely love the results from my breast augmentation . He spent time with me and I didn’t feel rushed. Went with the Sientra implants for my piece of mind. The recovery was not as bad as I thought it was going to be, and he saw me for all of my follow-ups. I highly recommend seeing him.*
