 Why Do Your Earlobes Appear Longer Than They Used To?

As you age, your skin loses its plumpness and elasticity. These changes are not limited to your breasts or face. The earlobes also begin to sag more and become thinner because of the effects of gravity and loss of collagen.  Adding the weight of earrings to the already stressed earlobes makes them stretch over time. That is why you might notice that earrings do not stay as high as they did when you were younger, or the earlobe piercing has elongated.

What Happens During An Earlobe Repair?

Earlobe repair is a simple procedure performed in the office. The doctor only administers a local anesthetic to help control pain. At Manhattan Dermatology, Dr. William uses his expertise to change your stretched out earlobes’ shape to be shorter and more young-looking. The procedure takes no more than thirty to sixty minutes.

What Should You Do If You Tear Your Earlobe?

Dangling earrings and big hoops can get hooked or snag on objects. If you are in a quick motion, the earring can rip directly through your lobe, tearing it apart. When this happens, you don’t have to worry. Dermatologic specialists at Manhattan Dermatology offers earlobe surgical repair to restore your earlobe. In case of an emergency, contact them for an immediate appointment.

What Is The Downtime After Earlobe Repair?

After the earlobe surgical procedure, your earlobes might feel quite sore. However, there is no real downtime, and you can return to your normal daily activities immediately after the surgery.  However, the doctor repairs your earlobe completely, closing your original piercing meaning you won’t wear your earrings. 

Can I Undertake Other Aesthetic Services When I Get Earlobe Repair?

When enhancing the aesthetics of a stretched-out or torn earlobe, it’s the perfect time to undertake other rejuvenating and aesthetic procedures to enhance your look further. Some of the cosmetic dermatology services that you can combine with earlobe repair include chemical peels, laser skin tightening, laser resurfacing, Botox wrinkle removal, unwanted hair removal, and facial volume restoration. All these services are accessible at Manhattan Dermatology and are done by board-approved dermatology specialists.

To sum up, Manhattan Dermatology is home to some of the leading board-certified dermatologists in New York, providing you with comprehensive care for your medical and aesthetic needs.  If you consider restoring your earlobes, call or schedule an appointment today or walk-in if you have a torn earlobe.
