EARLOBE REPAIR AND RECONSTRUCTION IN BOCA RATON, FL
While many injuries to your earlobes can be fixed with earlobe repair, defects and more extensive damage require earlobe reconstruction. Earlobe reconstruction can also help reverse the effects of sun damage and aging. Like your face, the skin of your earlobes is very delicate and can develop fine lines and wrinkles. This can be problematic for men and women because wearing earrings, which is intended to add beauty to the ears, only draws attention to sagging skin and drooping earlobes.
What Is Earlobe Reconstruction?
Earlobe reconstruction is a plastic surgery procedure that removes excess skin and soft tissue from your earlobes. Dr. Farber then works to reshape the remaining tissue to rejuvenate the earlobes.
