Earlobes can suffer from long-term damage after they have been ripped, stretched or weighted down.

Earlobe repair involves a reversal of damage to an ear and restoration of the contour and symmetry of the lobe. It is designed to alter the appearance of an earlobe following trauma or congenital birth defect.

The typical earlobe repair procedure can take up to one hour depending on your specific needs. It can be performed as an outpatient surgery under local or sedation anesthesia. When it comes to an earlobe repair, Zuri Plastic Surgery in Miami, can perform surgery to improve the appearance of an earlobe. Even if the damage is permanent, Dr. Zuriarrain can help to restore the earlobes to their normal shape.
