Whether you associate your ears with your facial appearance or not, the ears play a vital role in the symmetry and overall appearance of the face. The earlobes are prone to easily tearing and stretching because they do not have cartilage to help them keep their shape. At Atlanta Plastic Surgery Specialists, Dr. Mark Mitchell Jones offers excellence in earlobe repair through cosmetic surgery. Dr. Jones is renowned for his skill and artistry in repairing ear lobes that are torn, stretched, or drooping. Dr. Jones uses his specialties in cosmetic surgery to create natural looking and long lasting results.
Dr. Mark Mitchell Jones has over 20 years of first class education and training with a double board certification by The American Board of Plastic Surgery and the American Board of Otolaryngology (ear, nose, and throat: ENT). This dual certification allows him to enhance not only the aesthetic features of the face, but also that natural functionality of the body.
There are different factors that can contribute to the form, structure, and shape of the earlobes:
- Prolonged wear of heavy earrings
- Multiple ear piercings
- Ear piercings too low on the earlobe
- Ear gauging/stretching
- Injury or trauma to the earlobe
- Natural aging process
With most earlobe repair procedures, there is little downtime associated with the procedure and it is a relatively quick out-patient procedure. Typically performed with local anesthesia, the earlobe can be reshaped by removing extra, sagging tissue, and then using sutures to close the repair. Every cosmetic procedure is tailored to meet the needs of each patient so that little to no scarring is left behind, yet the repair is fully complete.
