Throughout life, we all pursue lifestyle choices that define us as people. For some people, it is music; for others, sport is a passion. Unfortunately, many of these pursuits can result in damage to the ears. From tears to deformities, cosmetic damage is often noticeable and irreparable without surgery.

Fashion statements such as earrings are responsible for stretching and tearing the ears. In addition, some sports, including football and combat, resulting in deformities of the ears due to trauma. Once these lifestyle choices are a thing of the past, you may wish to seek cosmetic surgery to repair the damage.

Hoop & Plug Earrings

Large hoop earrings can get caught on other objects. If you pull away, there is a risk of tearing the ear. These fashion accessories are also an easy target in assaults or fights. Significant tears will not heal properly without repair.

Plug earrings are designed to stretch the earlobe. The larger the plug, the more your lobe will become stretched. Fans of this fashion accessory often grow out of the fad, leaving the ears damaged. Fortunately, a plastic surgeon can correct gauge piercings to restore your ear lobes to their natural appearance.

Sporting Activities

There is a range of sporting activities that can cause damage to the ears. For example, football, rugby, boxing, and MMA are dangerous contact sports. Once you retire from competition, you may want to correct the damage your ears have suffered.

Cauliflower ear is the most common type of damage that results from sports competition. You may also suffer tears due to extreme trauma. In addition, scar tissue from natural healing is highly visible, making your ears stand out in the wrong ways. Once you have walked away from your sport, repairing these issues will improve your appearance and help balance your facial features.

I haven't the opportunity to meet the doctor yet, I have an appointment. I was referred by an ENT doctor in NJ, Dr. Douglas Leventhal, nice, young, excellent bed manners. Unfortunately he does not reconstruction nasal perforation, but he was very interested in helping me, and he referred me to a colleague in NY, and asked me wait a call from them, otherwise to call him back if they didn't contact me. Thanks GOD, they are very efficient and received, today two calls , I finally got to talk to Evelyn, very kind, and patient, gave me the appointment, I hope that my present health problem due to bad medical practice years ago, Dr. Rossenberg, can reconstruct my septum. I thank you from deep of my heart.
