Ear lobe repair or surgery is a type of a cosmetic surgery that is carried out to eliminate deformities in the ear lobes of a person. This reconstructive plastic surgery is particularly useful in treating patients who have suffered damage to their ear lobes due to an accident or those who have stretched out or torn or split ear lobes. This surgery is quick and effective and is of two types- flesh tunnel repair surgery and split ear lobe repair surgery. These surgeries are generally carried out as corrective measures for ear piercings gone wrong as well as other body art types that adversely affect the ear lobes of a person. Heavy earrings can also stretch out the ear lobes and cause them to elongate. However, ear lobe repair can fix all of the aesthetic issues one faces with the appearance of their ear lobes.
Whether it’s a flesh tunnel repair surgery or a split earlobe repair surgery, the procedure carried out is fairly simple. Before the start of the surgery, the patient is administered local anesthesia, which helps numb the site of the operation. After that, in a flesh tunnel repair surgery, the surgeon will make an incision in the ear lobe of the patient and will remove the affected area. After that, the remaining portions of the ear lobe will be sutured together to eliminate the damage to the ear lobe. The process of the split ear lobe surgery is more or less the same, with the difference being that a split ear lobe surgery takes a lot more time to complete than a flesh tunnel repair surgery. That said, both of these surgeries are still relatively quick and much simpler when compared to other cosmetic or plastic surgeries. In fact, this ear lobe repair surgery takes a maximum of about 30 minutes to 1 hour for each ear lobe of the patient concerned, depending on the type of surgery one opts for.
