If the earlobes are split, this deformity is quite visible, and many patients feel self-conscious about the appearance of their earlobes. They refrain from ever putting their hair up in order to hide their earlobes. An earlobe repair procedure with Dr. Lee at PERK Plastic Surgery involves freshening up the torn edges and then reapproximate the new edges back together. It is a simple procedure with a straightforward recovery.

Earlobes may tear for many reasons, including being pulled on by small children, earrings that are pulled out, fights, accidents, or large gauge ear jewelry.
Aging can also cause the earlobes to sag and look unattractive. Anyone who is unhappy with the appearance of their earlobes is a good candidate for the surgery, provided they are of sound mind and body, non-smokers with no major medical conditions, and they have realistic expectations for their outcome.
