Cleft Earlobe/Earlobe Lift – Patient 104
A professional woman still working in her early 70’s who is troubled by “floppiness” of her earlobes as she has aged. She is shown again, 6 weeks after an “ear lobe lift”. I find that many women that I see in the Boston area are bothered by an aged appearance of the ear lobes, and are pleased to find out that it can be easily treated with a relatively simple procedure under local anesthesia in the office. Although scars typically look their worst at 6 weeks, she is already thrilled with how they look. We will typically wait 3 months to re-pierce the ear lobes to allow the skin to become stronger.
Cleft Earlobe/Earlobe Lift – Patient 103
A woman in her late 50’s with a cleft earlobe after earrings stretched and eventually tore through the skin. She has a complete cleft of the earlobe and drooping of the earlobe. She is shown again, 4 months after repair, and just before re-piercing of the ear in the office.
Cleft Earlobe/Earlobe Lift – Patient 102
A woman in her mid 60’s who is troubled by looseness and drooping of her ear lobes. She is shown again, 7 months after an “ear lobe lift” done under local anesthesia in the office. Typically we will re-pierce the ears in 3 months time, but her travel schedule delayed this. She is pleased with the more youthful appearance of her ear lobes from a relatively simple procedure in the office.
Cleft Earlobe/Earlobe Lift – Patient 101
An RN in her early 60’s was troubled by a split earlobe or “cleft” ear lobe. As she has aged, her earlobes have also drooped, giving them a more aged appearance. A nice procedure under local anesthesia in the office is an “ear lobe lift” which corrects both problems. The ear lobe is swung back and forth past an imaginary point in the midline to mark the excess earlobe, which is then removed at the time of correction. She is shown again at 3 months, just before repiercing her earlobes in the office. She is thrilled by the correction with this simple procedure.
