Pixie Ears: Attached Earlobe Surgery

Earlobe Repair Atlanta GA

Pixie ear is a condition in which the earlobe is attached to the cheek and doesn’t have a split or notch at the earlobe-cheek junction.

This shape can be a feature that you’ve always had. For others, it’s a condition that has occurred after a facelift. Some inexperienced surgeons pull the skin too tightly during a facelift and after a while, pixie ears occur, giving the appearance of a stretched ear.

Some people aren’t at all bothered by the appearance of pixie ears while other Atlanta, GA residents seek a way to alter the shape of their attached earlobes.

Whether you choose to get your pixie ears worked on is completely up to you!

Pixie Ear Surgery

If your pixie ears are a result of a facelift, then a revision facelift procedure will give you the longest-lasting results. For patients who don’t qualify for this treatment because the skin doesn’t allow for a reversal, then we can do a method called a V-Y flap repair.

During V-Y flap repair, our surgeon will remove excess skin from the earlobe-cheek junction area, as well as the earlobe itself. Then sutures will be placed in such a way that it gives the earlobe the desired shape.  This procedure is often done with great success. It is an out-patient treatment, only requires local anesthetic, takes under one hour, and involves minimal downtime.

After Pixie Ear Surgery

Immediately following your surgery, you’ll be able to see a big difference.  However, since the area will be swollen and have stitches in place, you won’t see the full results until the sutures are removed 5-7 days later.
