The earlobe is a thin and delicate area of skin and fat that can easily stretch and split after wearing heavy earrings for many years. Tribal earrings can cause the hole to become enlarged and the lobe significantly stretched. Accidental trauma can also cause the earlobe to split.
Split earlobe correction thus can correct:
Split earlobe correction is a small surgical procedure which Maisam Fazel performs under local anaesthetic. The procedure takes about 20 minutes to perform.
Maisam Fazel employs several different surgical techniques depending on type of correction required concern. Overstretched skin can be removed, tissue repositioned and new edges formed which can knit together.
Local anaesthetic is used during the procedure. Afterwards patients may feel some slight discomfort but this wears off within a day.
Maisam Fazel advises patients to wait 2 months after surgery before having your ears re-pierced.
Patients should be able to return to normal activities immediately but avoid vigorous exercise for two weeks. Patients also need to avoid dying their hair for a couple of weeks after surgery.
