Ear lobe reconstruction has finally received national attention. Kris Jenner from "Keeping up with the Kardashians" decided it was time to have her droopy lobes corrected and the surgery that was performed was appropriate, real and safe. The procedure was a carefully constructed wedge excision to each ear which results in ear lobe rejuvenation. We love this procedure and so does everyone who has it done by Dr. Capuano. Our ears and nose never stop growing, this is a procedure for both men and women, though we see more women having it performed who have been wearing heavy earrings for years which commonly stretches out the ear lobe. Dr. Capuano performs this surgery with local in our office, we make our patients comfortable and ease anxiety with an oral medication, the procedure doesn't take more than an hour.
* Please note*If the wedge excision seems too extreme for you, the next best thing is filler to the ear lobes, this also helps rejuvenate the ear lobes and makes them look like soft little pillows. It is not permanent like the excision but it a wonderful treatment in addition to or in lieu of the ear lobe excision.
