Otoplasty (Ear Reshaping) Case #274
This patient is a 22 year old male from the Tempe, Arizona area who presented to my Scottsdale, Arizona area medical practice with interest in earlobe repair.
This patient had worn gauges in her earlobes which stretched and deformed the shape of his skin. He was interested in applying for jobs and felt a more natural earlobe appearance would be beneficial for his interactions.
I recommended removal of the excess skin with reconstruction of the earlobes. This was performed under local anesthesia (numbing medication only), and the patient felt virtually no discomfort during the surgery.
He healed very nicely and was extremely happy with the new appearance of his earlobes.
