You Tube Video: 

Torn earlobe, earlobe grown on or deformed ear lobes can be corrected with the help of plastic surgery. Since the earlobe is composed of cartilage and there is little pain receptors, the OP can perform simple under local anaesthetic. Patients with particularly strong anxiety can be operated in the twilight sleep.

Ear lobes torn-from

When hanging, too big or too deep pierced earlobes are pulled through, the wound for an aesthetic result with a Z-PLASTY or cloth plastic must be corrected when you later again pierce the ear piercing. Alternatively a suitable ear piercing can model also with. For a fee, a plastic surgeon will develop an aesthetic result. In the ambulatory emergency care, only the wound is sutured simply without to pay attention to the form or to minimize the scarring.

Enlarge ear lobes

At very small earlobes you have the earlobe a little to increase the possibility with an injection. Usually used as a filler-hyaluronic acid, to appropriately model the earlobe. The effect lasts at least. 6 months.

Reduce ear lobes

In consultation with the patient, the surgeon marks the parts of the ear lobe to be removed. The points are drawn later ends up letting the shape. It is important that both ear lobes balanced look. Again, using different suture techniques, the wound is sutured so that form small scars, which leave no structures on the earlobe.

Earlobe grown on

When earlobes grown on, the desired shape is modeled surgically. There, the doctor from a piece of skin behind the ear shapes the new ear lobe. The new shape of the surgeon creates with through small incisions, a clever move of the skin and sewing up the folds of skin, so that the form results in a perfect ear lobes.

Large and hanging earlobes

Before the earlobes tear through it is advisable to consult the surgeon and preemptively inside cut out the hole. Then the wound with a simple seam is sewn and modeled a small piercing. (Alternatively you can also sew let and new pierce the ear piercing or shoot.) It carries a small piercing connector for 6 weeks and can then replace these with a subsequent plug. During the first 5 months, only ear plug with pin-shaped inner part should be used as follow-up plug. The pin should consist of nickel-tax-free surgical steel or other hypoallergenic materials.
