Ear Lobe Repair Brisbane
At The Cosmetic Surgery and Skin Cancer Centre, we offer earlobe repair surgery, which is a surgical procedure to revise the skin around unsightly large holes from stretchers or from ear “gauging”. Even though earlobes occupy only a small area of the face, having proportional earlobes can contribute significantly to the overall aesthetics and harmony of the face, in the same way unsightly earlobes creating a negative social image.
At The Cosmetic Surgery & Skin Cancer Centre, Dr. Wong repairs a few hundred earlobes per year, making him one of the most experienced ear lobe repairer in Brisbane.
Stretching of the ear lobes can also occur from wearing heavy ear jewellery over a long period of time, as well as from ageing, causing a disfigurement in the ear lobes. Perhaps you may wish to reduce the size of your earlobes to fit into the rest of your face.
What can we do?
- Repair large stretched earlobe & holes from stretchers
- Repair Torn earlobes
- Reduce the size of the hole from heavy earrings
- Reduce the size of hole from ageing
- Reduce and adjust the size of earlobe to suit the face
- Correct Pixie Earlobes (Pixie earlobes can occur after Facelift procedures)
The surgical procedure is performed under local anaesthetics and takes between 30 to 90 minutes per ear lobe. Scarring is generally minimal and gradually fades over a period of weeks. During the repair, the wound will be closed with 2 layers of meticulous sutures – internally using dissolvable sutures to maintain structure and strength of the repair, and externally, very fine sutures to give a good cosmetic scar. Patients are often surprised at how much surgical planning and the work required when Dr Wong repairs their earlobes.
Fees start from $450 to $700 per earlobe (for earlobe repair) depending on the difficulty of repair, and whether special internal sutures are required to maintain longevity of the repair. Our special technique have resulted in very high patient satisfaction rates. Earlobe reduction and reshaping is a different procedure and the fee is $770 per earlobe (there are no medicare rebate for earlobe reduction or earlobe reshaping).
If you cannot come for an initial consultation, please email a very clear photograph and detail your request to our clinic, we will provide the best estimate of fee for you. When you book for surgery, a booking fee applies which will be deducted from the total payable on day of surgery.
