What is Earlobe Reconstruction?

Patients who suffer from torn, stretched, or misshapen earlobes may feel they have to hide their ears with their hair or wear a hat. Earlobe reconstruction restores symmetry, natural beauty, and balance to the lobes, enhancing the patient’s confidence. The surgery can be performed to correct injuries due to large, hanging earrings or oversized ear gauges. Dr. Burgdorf has an array of techniques he can use to repair your lobes, and he will choose the best solution for your unique concerns and anatomy.

Types of Reconstruction

Marginal Earlobe Excision

This approach involves the removal of the excess skin on the lower margin of the lobe, creating a smaller earlobe, with scarring restricted to the lower edge of the ear.

Wedge Earlobe Excision

Here, Dr. Burgdorf will remove a triangular-shaped wedge of the earlobe. This procedure creates a vertical scar on the earlobe.

Z Plasty

Z Plasty, a plastic surgery technique that was developed to improve the appearance of scars, is also often used as part of the process of earlobe reconstruction. Z Plasty involves reshaping and minimizing deep and high-tension scars to make them less noticeable. In correcting large holes such as those left as a result of gauging, Z Plasty, combined with Dr. Burgdorf’s other repair techniques, minimizes notching of the earlobe and results in a natural-looking ear.
