When the earlobes are misshapen or have been injured or torn, it can be quite noticeable, causing anxiety and self-consciousness. After all, it is difficult to hide this area of the body. Earlobe repair with Dr. Leong in Morgantown WV can correct lobes that hang down too low, are too large, or have sustained damage due to a tear or jewelry, providing you with newfound satisfaction with your appearance.

What is earlobe repair?

Dr. Leong performs both earlobe repair and earlobe reduction for his Morgantown WV patients. With earlobe repair, he is able to combat damage due to the area by plugs, gauges or earrings that have stretched out the hole and left a gap. Plastic surgery on the earlobe can restore a natural, pristine appearance, setting you at ease about how you look.

With earlobe reduction, Dr. Leong can correct earlobes that may have been oversized from birth, or that may have grown elongated over time due to aging or gravity. He will excise excess skin and fat from the lobes, and place the stitches along the bottom of the ear where they are inconspicuous.

What are the benefits of earlobe repair?

  • Restore a pleasing appearance to the ears
  • Renew your ability to wear jewelry
  • Improve self-confidence and self-image
  • Easy, safe procedure with short recovery period
  • Natural-looking results

Who is a good candidate for the surgery?

Earlobe surgery can be efficient in treating:

  • Intentional earlobe stretching
  • Congenital conditions
  • Torn or damaged lobes
  • Asymmetrical lobes
  • Cleft ears

Clients undergoing surgery should be non-smokers in good mental and physical health who are realistic in their expectations for their results. Dr. Leong will meet with you in private during your Morgantown WV consultation to discuss your goals and will create a personalized action plan that meets your needs for improvement.

What will recovery entail?

Recovery tends to be swift and without incident, thanks to Dr. Leong’s conservative, precision-based techniques. The doctor will provide you with pain medications as well as a detailed aftercare plan that outlines showering, sleeping and exercising guidelines. Most patients return to their normal routine within several days. You will be able to pierce your ears again at around 60 days post-op.
