Torn Earlobe Repair
Torn ear lobes often result from long-term use of heavy earrings or from trauma when the earring is ripped through the lobe, leaving the ear lobe in two pieces. The good news is that this can be repaired as an outpatient office procedure, stitching the lobe carefully back together, and after healing, earrings can be used again. Dr. Joseph Rousso offers exceptional ear surgery results for those needing ear lobe repair due to torn or disfigurements at our office in New York City.
Ear piercings are the cause of many deformations to the ear lobes. Heavy earrings and pressure from talking on the phone or sleeping with the earrings left in can stretch the hole in the lobe. As the lobe stretches, the cartilage becomes thinner and eventually can tear. Earrings can also be caught or grabbed, pulling through the lobe and ripping it into two pieces. Another deformation is keloid scar development on the ear lobe from an infected ear piercing. Dr. Rousso offers correction for all these issues that piercing can cause to the ear. Many of these repairs can done in our office as an outpatient procedure.
Gauge Ear Lobe Repair
The large gauges that are worn in ear lobes can leave them with big holes that are very noticeable. Those individuals that no longer want to wear gauges in their ears are left with deformed ear lobes that can be embarrassing. Unlike torn ear lobe repairs, gauge holes cannot simply be sewn back together; the lobe would look deformed. However, Dr. Rousso is a talented facial plastic surgeon that can repair the ear lobe, replacing the tissue lost due to the gauge and reforming the shape of the earlobe for a natural appearance.
