Split or Cleft Earlobe
15 Min Procedure
Cleft earlobes due to earring pulls can be easily corrected with corrective ear surgery. This procedure is fast, safe, and effective, and can provide you with the confidence that comes with knowing your ears are looking their best and that you don't have to worry about them being damaged in the future. The surgery takes about 15 minutes, is done with local anesthesia so there will be minimal discomfort.
Recovering from split or torn earlobe repair is fairly straightforward and easy. After the procedure, you will just have a small steri-strip on the area. There is minimal discomfort afterwards, and you should be able to return to work or school immediately.
After waiting patiently for six weeks, the time has finally come to get your earrings ready! The area should have healed and new earrings can be placed.
Large or Protruding Ears
60 Min Procedure
If you are self-conscious about the size or protrusion of your ears, the good news is that there is a solution. The procedure to correct large or protruding ears typically takes around 60 minutes and can be performed under local anesthesia or with sedation to ensure your comfort throughout the procedure.
During the procedure, incisions are made behind the ear to access the cartilage. The cartilage is then reshaped and repositioned to create a more balanced and proportionate look. The incisions are closed with sutures, and a headband is worn for the first few days after surgery to aid in healing.
You should have little or no pain at all after surgery with modern techniques.
One of the benefits of this procedure is the fast recovery time. You can typically return to work or school after just six days, and most people can resume all normal activities within two weeks.
It's normal to experience some swelling and bruising after the procedure, but most of it will typically subside within a few weeks. Dr. Studin will provide you with specific aftercare instructions to ensure a smooth and successful recovery.
Once your recovery is complete, you'll be thrilled with the results of your procedure. Not only will your ears be more proportionate to your face, but you'll also be able to enjoy a wider range of hairstyles and confidently show off your ears.
While there may be some residual swelling that takes a few months to dissipate fully, you'll see a significant improvement in the appearance of your ears very soon after surgery. So whether you're looking to feel more confident or simply want to change up your hairstyle, this procedure can be a life-changing solution.
