Earlobe Repair Brisbane | Earlobe Filler and Stretched Earlobe Surgery

Earlobe Reduction | Split Earlobe | Ripped Ear Hole | Torn Earlobe

Earlobe repair can either involve earlobe filler or surgery. Earlobe repair surgery is the procedure to repair an earlobe that has been stretched, torn, or elongated due to age. It can include the repair of elf ears – a deformity resulting from a surgical facelift. (The contraction of scarring after surgery causes the earlobe to have an elongated, stretched appearance). Earlobe filler is often applied as an anti-aging treatment to plump our lobes that have deflated or stretched with time and heavy earrings. Dr AJ consults for earlobe repair. The consultation cost is $100, redeemable with any treatment with him within four weeks.

5 Indications for Earlobe Repair Surgery:

  • Disfigurement from the stretching of a hole in the ear from heavy earrings.
  • Earlobe reduction from earlobes is naturally more significant or, more commonly, in women, reduction in earlobe size earlobe has enlarged over time.
  • Split earlobe surgery or torn earlobe surgery, where the lobe has been split from the accidental pulling of an earring, causing the ear to rip entirely through.
  • Gauge earlobe stretching. The trend through 1990 was to use earlobe stretchers or spacers to stretch the earlobe progressively. Called gauged ears, they originated as traditional and some tribal groups. The Buddha famously stretched earlobes, which also occurred in some hill tribes. The difficulty is that this fashion changed, and some people regretted the decision or later elected to have this repair because it interfered with job prospects.
  • Elf ear surgery or repair. Elf ear results after plastic facial surgery where instead of the lobe being free, it is attached and stretched downward from scar formation after facelift surgery.

Earlobe Repair – Aging or Stretched Earlobes

Years of wearing heavy earrings can result in stretched earring holes. Combined, earlobes can result in unflattering elongated and stretched earlobes in young women. This can particularly age the facial appearance, a significant reason some women seek to repair it.

Earlobe Filler

For mild to moderate earlobe stretching, earlobe filler plumps up the lobe and helps reduce the size of the hole in the ear from dragging. In addition, earlobe filler is applied explicitly for anti-aging effects.

Earlobe Reduction

Earlobe reduction is performed for people with big earlobes naturally, or more commonly; earlobes become enlarged as part of the natural ageing process. (The earlobes and nose continue to grow) With time progression, the nose tip can droop down, and the earlobes elongated can be particularly aging in some people. Our doctors can correct a nose tip droop with dermal fillers, and elongated earlobes can be reduced with surgery.

Earlobe Repair Surgery for Split Earlobes.

Otoplasty is used to repair earlobes when the lobe is torn from earrings being rippled out. The process of tearing the earlobes heals with a split, disfiguring the ear, and you can no longer wear earrings. The cost of repair depends on the extent and number of tears.

Stretched Earlobe from Gauge Earrings or Stretchers.

Otoplasty or lobuloplasty for gauged or stretched earlobes is more complex and will cost more. The surgery aims to repair the earlobe by closing the holes and returning a more natural pre-stretched appearance.

 Elf Earlobe Surgery.

Recreating a free lobe can be combined with a reduction in the stretched earlobe and earlobe reduction. The principal cause of this is scarring post-facial surgery, resulting in disfiguration of the earlobe and elongation or exaggeration of the lobe.
