Earlobe tears are very common and often occur from continuously wearing heavy earrings.  Traumatic events can also cause an earlobe defect, such as someone accidentally pulling out your earring in a pierced ear, a dog bite or injury from a car accident. You might also have an enlarged hole in the lobe due to gauge piercings, and would like the lobe to be repaired to its original state. In addition, aging or natural irregularities may require an earlobe repair to restore the aesthetic appearance of your earlobe. Finally, disfiguring keloid scars can form on the earlobe after piercing and result in itching and pain. Earlobe irregularities can draw unnecessary attention to these defects and take away from your other beautiful features.

Dr. Hooman Khorasani understands that earlobe damage is unsightly, can affect your self-esteem and impact your daily life. With a simple and swift in-office procedure, Dr. Khorasani can repair the defect and help restore your confidence.

Earlobe Rejuvenation using Filler Injections

Dermal filler injections have become a versatile solution in the field of cosmetic dermatology, not only for facial enhancements but also for restoring the appearance of earlobes. Over time, the earlobes can lose volume and elasticity, leading to sagging or elongation. This can be due to factors such as aging, frequent earring use, or even genetics. Dermal fillers, typically made of hyaluronic acid, collagen, or other biocompatible materials, can be skillfully injected into the earlobes to rejuvenate their appearance.

During the procedure, Dr. Khorasani carefully injects the filler into the earlobe, plumping it up and restoring lost volume. This helps to reduce sagging and wrinkling, creating a more youthful and firm appearance. The treatment is minimally invasive, requiring little to no downtime, making it a convenient option for those seeking a quick aesthetic improvement. It’s a popular choice for individuals who wish to wear earrings more comfortably, as well as those who want to regain a more youthful look in their earlobes. The results are temporary but can last several months to a year, depending on the type of filler used, making it a safe and effective solution for earlobe rejuvenation.

Earlobe Tear Repair

Dr. Hooman Khorasani, a renowned dermatologist and cosmetic surgeon, employs the excision technique to perform earlobe repair, a procedure that offers several significant benefits. This technique is commonly used to address issues such as torn or elongated earlobes due to trauma, heavy earring use, or aesthetic concerns. The procedure typically begins with a thorough consultation to assess the specific needs of the patient. During the actual repair, Dr. Khorasani uses precision and artistry to carefully remove the damaged or excess tissue from the earlobe.

One of the key advantages of the excision technique is its ability to provide a permanent solution. By excising the damaged area and skillfully suturing the edges, Dr. Khorasani ensures that the earlobe is restored to its natural and aesthetically pleasing shape. This technique also allows for customization, enabling Dr. Khorasani to tailor the repair to the patient's unique anatomy and preferences. The incisions are strategically placed to minimize scarring, and the procedure typically takes less than an hour to complete. With Dr. Khorasani's expertise, patients can expect not only functional but also aesthetically pleasing results, allowing them to enjoy a renewed sense of confidence and satisfaction with their earlobes.
