Did you know that heavy earrings can stretch your earlobes? It may seem like a small detail, but the lobes of your ears can affect how you feel about your appearance. Add to this the aging process and you start to realize the many factors that influence how we look and feel. It’s not the end of the world though, our surgeon at Sunset Cosmetic Surgery, Dr. Svehlak has the solution!

Earlobes Can Be Rejuvenated!

Earlobe repair, also known as earlobe rejuvenation, is a cosmetic procedure designed to address stretched or enlarged lobes. The joy of elective surgery means that you no longer have to live with unsightly ears when you can reshape the ears to appear more natural and pleasing to the eyes.

What caused your earlobes to stretch?

Stretched or enlarged earlobes can result from various factors, including:

  • Wearing heavy earrings that stretch the tissue over time.
  • Trauma or injury causes tears or splits.
  • Aging-related changes, as the skin loses elasticity and firmness, leading to sagging or drooping of the earlobes.
  • Genetic predisposition, where some individuals may naturally have thinner or less elastic tissue, making them more prone to stretching.

So, how exactly does earlobe repair work?

During the procedure, a skilled surgeon carefully reshapes the lobe of the ear to correct any stretching or enlargement. This often involves removing excess tissue and suturing the earlobes back together to achieve a more balanced and aesthetically pleasing appearance. Don’t worry. The surgery is typically performed under local anesthesia, ensuring minimal discomfort.

What’s the recovery like?

Give your body time to heal. The recovery process varies from person to person. Most individuals can expect some swelling, bruising, and discomfort following surgery. However, these symptoms typically subside soon, allowing patients to resume their normal activities the same day or the day after. Following your surgeon’s post-surgery instructions are crucial to your healing. Your lifestyle activities and choices may be restricted, such as no piercings during the first 3 months post-surgery.

While earlobe repair may seem a purely cosmetic procedure, its benefits extend far beyond appearance alone. For many individuals, fixing ear piercing holes can alleviate self-consciousness and embarrassment. It can also restore the ability to wear earrings comfortably and confidently, allowing you to express yourself through fashion without worry.

How much does it cost to fix ear-piercing holes?

The cost depends on various factors, including the extent of stretching, your desired outcome, and the expertise of your surgeon. On average, expect to pay anywhere between $500 – $2,000. Contact our Beverly Hills office to schedule a consultation and a detailed estimate.
