Earlobe restoration procedures are becoming one of the hottest trends in the Houston cosmetic surgery marketplace. These treatments are designed to restore the appearance of earlobes that have been stretched or split because of heavy earrings and other items of jewelry or adornment. Over time, earlobes can also exhibit some of the telltale signs of aging and may require rejuvenation to ensure that patients look their best.
There are a number of reasons for wanting to restore sagging or stretched out earlobes:
- To restore a more youthful appearance
- To qualify for military service
- To eliminate safety issues
- To increase your chances of obtaining jobs where a professional appearance is required
- To repair torn or stretched out tissue to enhance your overall appearance
Your surgeon can provide you with expert guidance on the most likely results of your procedure and can offer professional recommendations on the best options for your needs.
Options for Restoring Earlobes
For some patients, dermal fillers can be used to restore sagging earlobes and to create a more youthful appearance. These injectable treatments are best suited for cases in which earlobes have begun to show signs of age. Wrinkles, sagging and creasing can often be reduced or eliminated by dermal filler treatments. This can help you look more youthful and feel more attractive every day.
More dramatic stretching or sagging may require the attention of a Houston cosmetic surgeon to ensure the most attractive results. These surgical procedures can typically be done on an outpatient basis and with local anesthetic. Your surgeon will discuss the procedure with you before deciding on an approach to your treatment plan, which usually includes some or all of the following steps:
- Removal of excess skin and tissue from inside the hole or tear
- Stitches to connect the sides of the hole or tear
- Shaping of the earlobe to create a pleasing silhouette
- Antibiotic treatments to prevent infections during the healing process
In some cases, you may be able to combine a Houston face lift with your earlobe rejuvenation treatment for an even more dramatic improvement in your appearance and your confidence levels.
