With the popularity of rings and expanders, the elongation or tear and even a complete tear of the earlobes has become very frequent. These tears are usually the result of wearing heavy earrings or a sudden sharp pull down. The lobes also lengthen over the years and they tune, this leads to the patient's desire to give it volume and shorten them.
The surgery is not complex and lasts on the order of 20 minutes. In this surgery local anesthesia is used, sleeping only the sector in which you work. Once the procedure is completed, the ear lobes are covered in order to avoid any type of infection that may occur in contact with water, blows or chafing.
The most common way to operate a torn lobe is called simple closure, where the walls of the hole are affected and the skin is sewn closing both the posterior and anterior parts of the ear lobe.
The patient immediately goes on with his normal life and the ring is placed in the same act in a place generally a little higher and more centered. It does not require previous studies, nor does it require the patient to come fasting.
