Do your earlobes make you unhappy? Have you experienced trauma that changed their shape or appearance? Earlobe repair is a common procedure many people may need at some point in their lives. While it may not be a life-threatening issue, it can significantly impact a person’s self-esteem and confidence. Dr. Mark Mitchell Jones at Atlanta Plastic Surgery Specialists, P. C. is a double board-certified plastic surgeon specializing in earlobe repair in Atlanta. Here are some situations where you may need earlobe repair.

Torn Earlobes

One of the most common reasons why people seek earlobe repair is due to torn earlobes. This can happen for various reasons, including wearing heavy earrings, accidentally getting earrings caught on something, or even an injury caused by trauma. The earlobes are soft tissue that is easily torn or damaged. A torn earlobe can cause discomfort, bleeding and even infection if left untreated. Earlobe repair can help to fix the tear and restore the earlobe’s natural appearance.

Earlobe Stretching

Earlobe stretching, or gauging has become a popular trend in recent years. However, some people may regret stretching their earlobes and wish to have them repaired. As trends and mores change, so do our choices and desires. A professional earlobe repair by a talented plastic surgeon like Dr. Jones can close the stretched hole and restore the earlobe’s original shape.

Keloid Scarring

Keloid scarring is a type of raised scar that can occur after an injury or surgery. Some people may develop keloid scars on their earlobes, which can be unsightly and uncomfortable. Dr. Jones can perform a specific earlobe repair technique that can help to remove the keloid scar, minimize the chance of a reoccurrence and restore the earlobe’s natural appearance.

Cosmetic Reasons

Some people may dislike the appearance of their earlobes, whether they are too large, asymmetrical or have an unusual shape. Earlobe repair can help reshape and resize the earlobes, improving their appearance and boosting self-confidence.
