Repairing a Ripped Earlobe

Since ancient times, people of both sexes have worn ear jewelry to enhance their appearance.  Unfortunately, the ears can become misshapen due to the jewelry’s weight, or a dangling earring can get caught and pulled, and the tiny wires can rip through the earlobe, as a result.  A torn earlobe appears raggedly notched; this damage is very visible and hard to conceal with hair or clothing.  In this case, a surgeon can repair the wounded earlobe.

Depending on the nature of the injury, reconstruction takes different forms.  In all methods, the surgeon removes the skin lining the opening, creating a raw edge to rebuild.  However, if the tissue has been lost, the procedure is more complicated, and the surgeon will need to create normal proportions around a somewhat smaller ear.

There are potential risks or complications of surgery, such as infections, scarring, allergic reactions, or visible sutures.  To minimize risks, you should meet with Dr. Usha Rajagopal, an expert plastic surgeon.

In advance of the surgery, Dr. Usha Rajagopal will meet with you to give you instructions you should follow, in order to make your surgical experience as easy and comfortable as possible and to minimize any risks.  For example, she will recommend that you stop smoking and taking aspirin and other anti-inflammatory drugs well in advance of the surgery, because smoking inhibits the healing process and anti-inflammatory drugs can cause increased bleeding.

Quality Care with the Expert Plastic Surgeon Dr. Usha Rajagopal

According to an old proverb, “The eyes are the windows to the soul,” and many believe it is within our souls that our true beauty resides. However, if the window is curtained over, that inner beauty can be obscured. Eyelids with excess, loose, or puffy skin, can cause this obscuring effect. Fortunately, one can eliminate this problem through a surgical procedure called blepharoplasty.

When performing blepharoplasty, the surgeon can remove excess skin from both the upper and lower eyelids, reducing the lids’ droopiness or puffiness.

Since the eyes are very sensitive and delicate organs, one should be sure to choose an expert plastic surgeon. Dr. Usha Rajagopal is just such an expert. Located in San Francisco, Dr. Rajagopal offers a full range of cosmetic dermatological procedures, as well as state-of-the-art laser treatments.

You can be confident when Dr. Usha Rajagopal uses her expertise to reduce the excess tissue that now prevents a clear view of your eyes – the windows to your inner beauty.
