Earlobe tears or splits are usually caused by wearing heavy earrings or trauma, when your ear jewelry gets stuck in your clothes or is accidentally or purposely ripped off or when the earlobe has been stretched through ear piercing practice also known as gauging. And given the earlobe is made out of skin and fat, tears, splits and stretching occurs very easily, leaving you with highly unaesthetic earlobes or the inability to wear ear jewelry, which is quite an issue for women. Renew Skin & Health Clinic comes to your aid with a very effective, minimally invasive and cosmetically satisfying torn earlobe repair surgery in Birmingham, a private procedure performed by consultant plastic surgeon Mr. Alan Park who has gained an extensive experience in the field. Regardless of the cause of the tear or stretch, the torn earlobe repair surgery will restore the normal shape of the earlobe, allowing you to wear earrings again following the procedure.
Our extremely qualified and experienced surgeon will perform the delicate torn earlobe repair in Birmingham which will last between 20 to 30 minutes, meaning that no downtime or pain is involved due to the use of local anesthesia or other sedatives you might opt for. There are two ways in which the torn earlobe repair in Birmingham is carried out, first the repair is made in a straight line and the second in a zigzag line, all depending on the shape and size of both the ear and the tear. The three-layer repair surgery of which you will hear of from most surgeons is performed thusly: one to close the outer layer of the skin, one to close the fatty tissue between the two layers and one to close the skin in the back of the earlobe.
