Otoplasty (Ear Reshaping) Case #140
This patient is a 44 year old female from the Scottsdale, Arizona area who presented to my Paradise Valley, Arizona area medical practice with interest in earlobe repair due to a torn earlobe. This is a common problem that is usually due to a trauma or prolonged use of heavy earrings.
I felt that a wedge resection with direct closure of the earlobe would greatly improve the shape and appearance of her ear. I performed this surgery using local anesthesia (numbing medication in the earlobe).
After surgery the patient did very well, and she was very happy with the new appearance of her ear.Surgeon: Dr. Cohen
