Post Traumatic Injury of Ears
Deformities of the ear can occur due to injury or trauma (e.g. car crash) or torn ear lobes. Post traumatic injury of the ears may cause social anxiety and often leaves patients seeking cosmetic treatment to regain their confidence.
Loss of part of the ear, in adults, can lead to psychological distress which may interfere with someone’s social interaction, personal relationships and career. Post Traumatic Injury or tears can be repaired fairly easily with surgery if this is something you wish to undertake, and can have a profound impact on ones self-esteem and happiness.
Aside from accidents or medical issues, ear lobes can also be repaired after piercings have been removed. There has been a huge rise in the amount of men and women seeking restorative surgery to their ear lobes after experimenting with body modification. Stretching the lobes with plugs may seem like a fashionable choice when you’re a teenager, but for many adults the drooping ear lobe you’re left with once the piercing has been removed can look unsightly. Luckily, Mr. Aftab Ahmed is one of the top facial surgeons in the UK for ear surgery, so you can be sure the result will improve your ear lobes as well as your confidence.
There are a variety of surgical procedures that can be offered by facial and ENT surgeon Mr. Ahmed to improve the appearance of the ears after injury or trauma; which one you require is determined during a thorough consultation with a qualified surgeon.
During ear lobe reconstruction, for example, surgery the surgeon may make a triangular shaped cut at the base of the lobe. A flap that matches, is made from tissue on the other side of the tear, allowing the two wedges to be stitched together. A similar procedure is available for those who were born without an ear lobe, so ear surgery can be a viable option for many people, regardless of age or gender.
Ear lobes heal reasonably quickly with minimal scarring and most people report that it doesn’t look like they’ve undergone a surgical procedure, as the results are realistic and natural. However, there is a chance of scaring and infection – as with any form of cosmetic surgery – so it’s important you’re aware of risks associated with this procedure prior to surgery.
