No matter whether your earlobes have damaged due to heavy earrings or they have just lost the cuteness when you were a teenager, the ear lobe correction treatment could be your best bet. This plastic surgery would require about 20 minutes and doesn't involve any risks or complications. As we progress through time, our earlobes become thin and fragile, sometimes causing the ear piercing to become a hole which further elongates until the lobe is split into 2 parts. The ear lobe surgery is performed under general anesthesia and here the surgeon would cut out the tunnel of skin where you have placed your heavy earrings and then join the pieces together allowing you to wear lovely earrings once again. But for that, you would have to wait for about 6 to 8 weeks and re-pierce the lobes. It is generally advised to wear gold-plated or real gold studs for a few weeks to help the earlobe repair to heal properly. Make sure you don't wear dangling earrings for about 3 to 4 months after the ear lobe correction treatment. Not just earrings, even aging can snatch away the natural glamor of the ears due to loss of collagen making the lobes become elongated and thinner. In that case, the surgeon would cut out a part of the earlobe and create a nice shape to give it a right proportion so that the ear appears younger than before. This treatment, purely for aesthetic reasons, thus results in better appearance of the ear lobes.
