The earlobes can be best described as appendages comprising of a fair amount of skin and little amount of soft fatty tissue. If you consider the anatomy of the human earlobe, you would be surprised to find the huge variation in form, shape, and size. When you put excessive weight on these fragile ear lobes in the form of heavy earrings, they may exert such a heavy pressure that there is a gradual tear in the earlobe tissue. So there are some individuals who are not just contented with the length of their ear lobes and wish to undergo an earlobe reduction. If the split in the ear lobes has been caused gradually, it may not cause any pain or discomfort though it may look unsightly and deprive the person of wearing lovely earrings. If you have torn and unsightly ear lobes, it can be easily corrected with ear lobe repairs treatment. This ear lobe surgery is performed under local anesthesia and you will not feel any pain or discomfort during the procedure. The surgeon would plan the progress of the plastic surgery and deposit a little amount of lidocaine numbing solution in the affected area. Then he would rebuild the earlobe by removing the healed and scarred regions of the lobe and the ear lobe repairs treatment are then executed either in a zigzag pattern or along a straight line which is dependent on the individual anatomy of the concerned person's ear lobe and the result is a beautiful ear lobe that is free from any discomfort.
