Ear Lobe Repair
Ear repair and reshaping for children or adults can set prominent ears back closer to the head and reduce the size of large ears. Ear surgery may also be helpful for “lop ear,” “cupped ear” and “shell ear” as well as large or stretched earlobes and lobes with creases and wrinkles. The procedure lasts from 2 to 3 hours and may be performed in a hospital, office-based facility or an outpatient surgery center under general or local anesthesia.
After surgery, it is important to protect the ear carefully and not traumatize it for several weeks. External sutures, if used, will be removed within a week after surgery. The incisions are usually placed behind the ear and heal very well, becoming almost invisible.
