Is ear repair surgery right for me?

To find out if you’re a candidate for ear repair, your Thomas Dermatology provider discusses your medical history and desired outcome. You will likely qualify for ear repair if you have a torn earlobe from an earring, a gauged ear, or you’ve suffered a traumatic accident that has altered the appearance of your ear. 

Your provider examines the soft tissue (outer part) of your ear and lets you know what to expect during the procedure before personalizing a treatment plan that matches your needs.

What should I expect during ear repair?

Right before ear repair surgery, your surgeon numbs the treatment area to ensure you avoid discomfort. They may also offer a sedative to help you relax or fall asleep. 

Your surgeon makes an incision and repairs, removes, or reconstructs ear tissue. They then stitch the treatment area closed if needed. 

The length of each procedure depends on the type of ear repair surgery you undergo.

What happens after ear repair procedures?

If you’ve received a sedative during ear repair, you must have a family member or friend drive you home. Downtime after ear repair is usually minimal, so you can resume normal activities soon after treatment. Take medications as directed, ice the treatment area, apply ointment to treated tissues, and follow your provider’s aftercare instructions.

Avoid strenuous activities until given the okay. Protect your skin and avoid scratching, rubbing, or tugging on your ears while they heal. Attend all of your follow-up appointments at Thomas Dermatology to ensure that your ears are healing properly.
