What is earlobe repair?

Your earlobes are the soft, fleshy part of the ear. Many people use their earlobes for earrings or gauges (devices that stretch the earlobe, creating holes).

 If you wear heavy earrings or remove your gauge, you may have a large hole in the earlobe. Earrings may also cause tears in the earlobe. Earlobe repair procedures fix these earlobe issues. 


What is cosmetic ear repair?

Cosmetic ear repair, also called otoplasty, includes surgical procedures that improve your ear's size, position, or shape. People may seek cosmetic ear repair surgery if they have ears that stick out too far or ears that are too large.

The cosmetic surgeons at Leva Medical also perform cosmetic ear repair procedures. 


What happens during an earlobe repair consultation?

You can expect a patient-centered evaluation when you visit Leva Medical for an earlobe repair consultation. During your evaluation, the cosmetic surgeon asks detailed questions about your concerns and goals. They review your medical history and examine your ears.

The cosmetic surgeons then spend time discussing your surgical options to improve the look of your ears or earlobes.

Leva Medical specializes in cosmetic procedures for people of color (POC), including Hispanic and Latin individuals. When creating surgical plans, they take your ethnicity into consideration, making sure you get the results that best fit your style.


What happens during earlobe repair?

The cosmetic surgeons at Leva Medical customize your earlobe repair or otoplasty so you get the best possible outcomes. They perform the procedure in an outpatient setting. 

They may use local (numb the area) or general (you’re asleep during the procedure) anesthesia depending on the type of surgery. For earlobe repair, your surgeon sutures the torn or elongated earlobe. For cosmetic ear repair, your surgeon may remove excess cartilage or skin to improve aesthetics. 

You go home after your procedure, but you’ll need to take it easy the rest of the day. Most people resume their usual activities within a day. The cosmetic surgeons at Leva Medical provide at-home care instructions to support the healing process.
