Earlobe repair surgery repairs torn, stretched, or split earlobe piercings resulting from injury, accidents, or wearing heavy earrings for extended durations of time. The goal of the procedure is to restore the earlobe’s former shape. Houston, TX plastic surgeon Dr. Christopher Balinger offers earlobe repair services to patients in Houston, Conroe, and surrounding Texas communities.
Your Initial Earlobe Repair Consultation
During your first earlobe repair consultation, Dr. Balinger will ask questions and examine the patient’s ears before moving forward to the next step. This initial consultation – which is offered free of charge at Dr. Balinger’s office – is an opportunity to learn more about what this treatment entails, and what you can expect from the procedure.
Prepare for Your Earlobe Repair
Once Dr. Balinger creates a customized treatment plan for you, the surgeon will let you know how to prepare for the otoplasty ear surgery. You will be asked to stop taking some medication and herbal supplements that can increase your risk of bleeding. Smoking is also forbidden in the weeks before the surgery because it can increase the risk of complications and impair healing. The surgeon will let you know what to do on the night before the surgery, and what supplies you need to have in place for a smooth recovery.
