Ear surgery, also known as otoplasty, is a surgical procedure used to enhance the appearance of the ears. This procedure is frequently performed on children to help prevent the possibility of psychological damage from teasing and poor self-image. Though most commonly done on children five years of age or older, this procedure may also be performed on adults.
Dr. Matthew Epstein can repair torn or stretched earlobes with earlobe repair at Green Lake Facial Surgery. Earlobe repair is most commonly performed due to a torn earlobe, resulting from trauma or an accidental pull on the earring. This problem may also occur as a result of long-term wear of heavy earrings, which may stretch or weaken the earlobes, making them more susceptible to eventual damage.
Keloids on your ears, face or neck can be removed with a single outpatient minor surgery.
