Ear Surgery in Winnipeg, Manitoba
Ear surgery, also known as otoplasty, involves resizing, reshaping or remolding the ear cartilage. Also includes the correction of large piercings, closing stretched ears (gauged ears), and repairing torn earlobes.
Close Stretched Ears (Gauged Ears)
Stretched ears create a very distinctive ear transformation. The catch with gauged ears is most people are not aware that infections can arise and if/when they decide to remove the gauge — the large, stretched earlobe hole can remain.
When you remove the gauge, your earlobe may shrink to some extent over time but the enlarged hole may never appear natural.
With advanced plastic surgery techniques, the result is usually a normal looking earlobe once healed.
Dr. Islur is known for natural looking results and aesthetic success with closing gauged ears. Your Ear Surgery and recovery will be custom tailored to your unique needs, individual surgical results and recovery instructions may vary.
Repair of Torn Earlobe Piercings
Earrings that were accidentally torn from your ear can cause infections and the weight from heavy earrings often causes sagging, slits or even rips. Aging also takes a toll on earlobes, the skin sometimes stretches out of shape.
Whether heavy earrings have damaged your earlobes or they just don’t look as good as they did when you were younger, Dr. Islur can reshape your earlobe for a more youthful looking ear.
You can re-pierce your ear in the same location after 6 months, or 3 months if you decide to pierce somewhere else. Your Ear Surgery will be custom tailored to your unique needs, individual results may vary.
