The majority of cosmetic procedures available focus on the face itself, but many patients find themselves wishing they could repair or rejuvenate the appearance of their earlobes as well. At Julian Institute of Plastic Surgery in Spring Hill, Florida, Dr. Marc Polecritti offers earlobe rejuvenation to plump, repair, and reconstruct earlobes that have been impacted by aging or damage.
Plumping Earlobes Using Dermal Fillers
Age, time, and gravity don’t spare the earlobes, especially if you have worn earrings all of your life. Earlobes lose elasticity and volume just like the face and breasts, which creates unwanted signs of aging and makes it difficult to wear jewelry. If your earlobes now appear stretched, wrinkled, or thinned, you could benefit from Dr. Polecritti’s earlobe rejuvenation procedure that uses dermal fillers to add volume and plumpness to the earlobe area. Just a small amount of a dermal filler like Juvederm, Restylane, or Belotero effectively restores a full and inflated earlobe appearance.
This earlobe rejuvenation procedure using dermal fillers is quick, simple, and requires no downtime! As an extra perk, the hyaluronic acid dermal fillers maintain results in the earlobes much longer than in other areas of the face since the earlobes do not endure the wear and tear of muscle movement. Just one treatment from Dr. Polecritti can last you years!
Repairing Stretched and Torn Earlobes
The earlobes aren’t durable, and all it takes is one quick pull from a toddler’s curious hand to rip an earring right out of your ear. It’s also common for earrings to snag on clothing and stretch or tear the earlobe accidentally. Gauges, the earlobe stretching earrings, also lead to damage that requires professional attention. Dr. Polecritti sees many patients for these reasons and offers repair and reconstruction procedures to help the earlobes regain a normal, healthy appearance. Depending on the exact problem, he may fix the tear or stretch by stitching and reshaping the earlobe.
This is a relatively simple process that can be completed using local anesthesia or Lidocaine. The earlobe is fully healed after about six weeks, at which point Dr. Polecritti can place a new piercing if desired.
Thanks to the simple earlobe rejuvenation procedures offered at Julian Institute of Plastic Surgery, you can enhance your appearance and embrace your youthfulness without any limitations. Call (352) 606-4754 today to schedule your appointment!
