The earlobe is composed of tough areolar and adipose connective tissues, lacking the firmness and elasticity of the rest of the auricle (the external structure of the ear). Since the earlobe does not contain cartilage, it is highly sensitive and can get torn easily and split because of minor incidents but leave scars for life and an unaesthetic image. Thankfully, at our Renew Skin & Health Clinic the people from Northampton can benefit from a private treatment for torn earlobe repair from our extremely experienced Consultant Plastic, Reconstructive & Aesthetic surgeon, Mr. Alan Park will be in charge with performing the procedure.
Torn earlobes are usually caused from wearing heavy earrings for a long period of time, flesh earrings that affect the earring hole by elongating it extensively, looking extremely unpleasant or by trauma and accidents which can be highly bothering and unaesthetic, especially for women. These and other earlobe deformities can be easily corrected with the torn earlobe repair surgery in Northampton, as our plastic surgeon Mr. Alan Park has an extensive experience in this field.
During the simple and delicate torn earlobe repair surgery in Northampton that would last 20 to 30 minutes, patients can have their tears or splits repaired under local anesthesia with an optional sedative. A three-layer repair is usually recommended, depending on the technique of the plastic surgeon, 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.
Depending on the size or shape or the ear, the repair is performed in a straight line or zigzag line, but this will be discussed during the prior consultation which is mandatory to avoid any unaesthetic scarring or risks and to provide the people from Northampton with the best cosmetic results at Renew Skin & Health Clinic. The recovery after the torn earlobe repair surgery in Northampton is fast, no downtime is needed, so you can leave the clinic immediately after procedure. There are small chances of scarring, and Dr. Alan Park will do anything possible to leave no signs of surgical intervention or of the prior split and therefore provide you with superior aesthetic results. As a specialist, Mr. Alan Park can provide you, besides the torn earlobe repair surgery in Northampton, with other plastic surgery procedures for any ear or earlobe deformity, from earlobe reconstruction, to earlobe reduction, ear pinning or stretched earlobe repair, ensuring excellent cosmetic results.
