Ear Lobe Repair - Dr. Arash Moradzadeh
Serving Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, Santa Barbara and surrounding areas
Earlobe repair surgery for men and women is used to close and/or repair the torn or stretched earlobe and restore it to its original shape so it can function normally. Piercing of the ears can be maintained after earlobe repair surgery.
UNDERSTANDING THE PROCEDURE
The procedure, which is virtually painless, takes about an hour or less and involves the use of local anesthesia. Typically the tissue is cut in a special pattern call a “Z-plasty” flap. This involves removing the damaged skin or ear piercing tract and suturing together the outer and inner layers of skin and the fatty tissue in between.
WHAT TO EXPECT AFTERWARDS
Following the procedure patients are left with a natural looking, repaired and functioning earlobe. The recovery time is minimal and there is almost no pain following the procedure. Patients can return to their normal activities almost immediately. No dressing of any kind needs to be applied after the surgery — only antibiotic ointment to prevent infection. The stitches are removed about a week later when the swelling has subsided. The earlobe should heal fully within six to eight weeks.
IS EARLOBE REPAIR SURGERY RIGHT FOR YOU?
Following an initial consultation, Dr. Moradzadeh will be able to advise you on the best options for treating your damaged, torn or stretched earlobe. Earlobes are typically one of the major focal points on the face and a torn, deformed or split earlobe can detract from one’s appearance or preventing you from being able to wear the earrings you want. If your earlobes have been separated by a tear or they are significantly stretched enough to cause deformity, earlobe repair surgery may be the recommended option. Patients may also choose to have naturally long, detached earlobes reduced in size using this procedure.
An earlobe that has become elongated or flopped can be repaired with a simple surgical procedure and, if necessary, this can be supplemented with a facial filler like Juvederm® or Restylane®, which can be used to restore volume to the ear lobe and improve its appearance. Dr. Moradzadeh can advise you about the right treatment to ensure the best possible results.
The experience I had with Dr. Moradzadeh as my surgeon was phenomenal. His unmatched craft coupled with his amazing bedside manner made for a very pleasant experience. Dr. Moradzadeh has gone above and beyond to achieve the absolute best and natural results possible.
One year ago, Dr. Moradzadeh performed a septoplasty/rhinoplasty on me. I was an athlete all through school and broke my nose multiple times while playing softball. After college, I wanted to pursue my modeling career but missed a lot of opportunities because of the external deformity of my nose. I saw a few local Facial Plastic Surgeons but after meeting with them, I never felt comfortable enough to commit. -Marry
For many years, I suffered from severe breathing problems through my nose. I had been delaying any medical procedures to fix the problem because I was uncomfortable with the process, especially the packing typically inserted into the nasal passages and the difficult recovery period. I went to see Dr. Moradzadeh for any alternative solutions. He described a quick, special surgical process that he can perform which alleviates the problem, improves nasal breathing and has no negative side effects. I willingly agreed since my discomfort was only getting worse. After the brief surgery, I immediately noticed the improvement. I haven’t been able to breathe this freely in years...-R.D.
He is amazing! Already recommended to family and My father is going in on Monday. An excellent doctor and so glad I was referred to him. :) His office staff is also on point and very friendly. What an awesome experience.-Diana
Very professional and skilled at administering botox. I highly recommend!
It was interesting to feel my forehead muscles trying to relax, but I took it easy the day I had my face done and although he said that the results show 7 to 10 days after... I noticed my expression lines chilling out 48 hours later. It is nice to have had a good experience and I am pleased thus far with the service.
I was pleasantly surprised at how the office is welcoming and they were even able to get me in sooner, as I was early. Parking is a little tricky, so I took valet across the street and it was about $10 (tip included). The doctor was friendly and gentle, getting the areas that I wanted to target....-Anonymous
