Earlobe Repair in Cleveland, Ohio
The ear is a complex structure and is extremely important in maintaining balanced facial proportions, symmetry and contour. Due to the lack of cartilage support in the ear lobe, it is susceptible to deformities caused by injury and trauma. The most common reasons for a patient to seek facial plastic surgery consultation in Cleveland, Ohio for ear lobe repair are ear lobes that have been damaged or deformed as a result of trauma or injury, piercing or gauging, and ear lobes that have become saggy or elongated as a result of age. Another common deformity results from an earring that has been pulled out and causes the ear lobe to split.
