If you are suffering from torn earlobe, or an earlobe split, you can now resort to our Renew Skin & Health Clinic and benefit from our private torn earlobe repair surgery in Leicester performed by our highly experienced Consultant Plastic, Reconstructive & Aesthetic Surgeon Mr. Alan Park.
Earlobe tears or splits are usually caused by wearing heavy earrings or trauma, when your ear jewelry gets stuck in your clothes or is accidentally or purposely ripped off or when the earlobe has been stretched through ear piercing practice also known as gauging. And given the earlobe is made out of skin and fat, tears, splits and stretching occurs very easily, leaving you with highly unaesthetic earlobes or the inability to wear ear jewelry, which is quite an issue for women. Renew Skin & Health Clinic comes to your aid with a very effective, minimally invasive and cosmetically satisfying torn earlobe repair surgery in Leicester, a private procedure performed by consultant plastic surgeon Mr. Alan Park who has gained an extensive experience in the field. Regardless of the cause of the tear or stretch, the torn earlobe repair surgery will restore the normal shape of the earlobe, allowing you to wear earrings again following the procedure.
Given that it is a surgical procedure, prior to the torn earlobe repair procedure, you will have to undergo a prior specialized consultation during which details of the surgery will be discussed so that the best course of action can be taken, minimizing potential risks and ensuring the final cosmetic results you are expecting. The torn ear repair surgery in Leicester usually lasts for 20 to 30 minutes, being an outpatient procedure performed under local anesthesia at Renew Skin & Health Clinic. The extra tissue around the tear or stretch is removed and three fine sutures are used to close the frontal layers of the skin, the middle and the skin at the back of the earlobe. If the earlobe has been split, you need to wait for the wound to heal before undergoing the earlobe repair surgery in Leicester. Re-piercing is recommended only after at least 8 weeks following the private surgery for torn or split earlobes, and heavy ear jewelry is to be avoided as not to cause another rupture in the earlobe.
Being a minimally invasive procedure, the torn or split earlobe repair surgery in Leicester requires no downtime and recovery is relatively quick, and our plastic surgeon, Mr. Alan Park will provide you with all the post-operative care information you need to know. Mainly, you will be required to apply a thin layer of antibiotic ointment on the treated area as to prevent infections and revisit the clinic after approximately one week for a check-up and to have your stitches removed.
