The important aesthetic impact of your ears cannot be discounted. More than channeling sound into the functional portion of your inner ear, your outer ears add to your overall appearance with balance and style. Damage to one or both ears can change your appearance and present numerous challenges.
The talented professional team at Azouz Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery in Dallas, Texas, offers experienced Ear Trauma Plastic Surgery to repair and reform damaged ears. Our specialists can help when you suffer the following types of ear trauma.
Fads come and go, and one popular trend is wearing large gauges in the ears. These items stretch the ears to a great degree, and elongated earlobes are often the result. If a person wishes to move away from this type of ornamentation, the ears can be left with a substantially odd appearance. Moreover, normal ear ornaments cannot be worn. Our Azouz Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery team can repair stretched ears at our Dallas clinic.
Split or Torn Ears
Split or torn ears can result from catching an earring on an object or clothing, or even from personal trauma. Smaller splits or tears require only minor surgical repairs that can be handled on an outpatient basis.
Major damage, like a portion of the ear being torn loose or completely detached, can occur from serious traumatic events like car accidents. Our specialist plastic surgeons can reconstruct or reattach your ear and repair the damage to restore a normal appearance and function.
Many types of sports risk damage to the outer ear. Those sports that do not include head protection but include the possibility of blows to the head are especially worrisome. Repeated impacts to the ears can also cause deformities and damage. In some cases, an ear can be torn or detached. Even blows to the side of the head while wearing a helmet can damage the soft tissue of the outer ear.
Azouz Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery can provide emergency treatment for extensive ear trauma from sports injuries in the Dallas area. More than one surgical procedure may be required to restore the ears to a normal appearance.
