Men and women who have experienced damage to their earlobes, either a tear or stretch, may want to consider working with a doctor at Remington Laser Dermatology Centre in Calgary, AB to discuss surgical repair. Earlobe repair is a common procedure performed by Drs. Todd and Kent Remington at our practice. This procedure is used for addressing torn or elongated earlobes. This may be caused by large, heavy earrings or even ear gauges that stretch the skin dramatically over time. The holes left behind from this type of jewelry cannot be improved any other way except with surgical earlobe repair.
What is surgical earlobe repair?
The team of Remington Laser Dermatology Centre believes in providing patients with surgical earlobe repair to help address large holes or tears that have an impact on the ear’s appearance. This may happen after patients have had gauges removed from their ears, or if they have had an earring gets caught or yanked to create a tear. The procedure not only fixes the appearance of the earlobe but can be used to strengthen it. This is called a cross-over earlobe repair procedure is one of the most effective ways to repair a full torn earlobe. While some minor scarring may exist after surgery, this is minor in comparison to the appearance of the earlobe after tearing or stretching.
