Repair of Incomplete Lobe Tear
In order to effect an aesthetically appealing and durable repair, the the scar tissue was was removed with a scalpel. The inner dense connective tissue (the strength layers) was first repaired with dissolving sutures. The skin was then precisely closed with non-dissolving sutures which were removed at about two weeks. About four weeks after the procedure, the ear was re-pierced, and the ring was changed out for the first time two weeks later.
The patient did very well throughout and there were no complications or problems. She was very happy, and enjoyed wearing earrings at the wedding.
