Ears to a better look
Large, prominent, or disfigured ears can be a very noticeable aspect of your appearance. Ear surgery improves the appearance of your ears so that the focus is returned to the best features of your face. Ear surgery can increase confidence and self-esteem. If you are unhappy with your ears or embarrassed by prominent ears, ear surgery can help.
We also offer earlobe repair to correct torn earlobes that have completely torn, or repair unwanted gauges. Fresno plastic surgeon Dr. Kaye Riolo performs earlobe repair surgery for patients who want to correct a stretched or torn earlobe. Contact us today
Dr. Riolo performs several surgeries that correct problems with the appearance of the ears:
- Otoplasty or ear pinning
- Repair of torn or gauge-damaged earlobes
Also known as ear pinning surgery, otoplasty can correct prominent ears and other ear deformities. Otoplasty corrects the appearance of protruding ears.
Ear surgery can correct:
- Prominent ears that stick out
- Large ears that are too big relative to other features
- Injuries that alter the appearance of the ear, such as cauliflower ear
Having your ears pierced or wearing heavy earrings can stretch and alter the skin on the earlobe. If you once wore gauges, you may now be bothered by the residual donut hole in the earlobe.
Earlobe repair surgery is appropriate for men and women who:
- Have torn or stretched earlobes due to heavy earrings
- Can no longer wear earrings due to earlobe damage
- Want to correct large holes left from large gauge earrings
- Earlobe correction closes the large hole that heavy or large gauge earrings leave behind.
The skin on your earlobes can stretch due to aging or heavy earrings. Earlobe skin can change over time like the rest of your skin. Gauge piercings can leave large holes in the ears. Heavy earrings, especially combined with long hours against a telephone, can stretch the piercing, or even tear through the margin of the earlobe.
