What can I do about an abnormal ear scar from a face lift?


Face lift surgery requires meticulous technique and careful closure of incisions in order to minimize tugging or tension at the wound.  If these basic elements are not achieved, the resulting scar may be thickened, hypertrophic, or pulled in appearance.  The most noticeable area of pulling may be the earlobe and the base of the ear, which may sometimes begin to pull forward and anteriorly causing a condition known as pixie ear deformity.  Often, these earlobes are referred to a spock ears as they do not resume their normal contour that was present before surgery. 

 

Dr. Karamanoukian is a specialist in revision face lift surgery and revision facial cosmetic surgery.  Our office can help provide you with a consultation for face lift scar revision or revision face lift surgery without major surgical procedures.  Revision face lift surgery can dramatically improve your appearance and help you regain your confidence and allow you to pull your hair back and expose the incision line.  Unfortunately, many patients suffer from thickened scars resulting from a previous face lift procedure.  Dr. Karamanoukian performs cosmetic plastic surgery in both Beverly Hills and Santa Monica and can help you achieve your desired goals with minimally invasive surgery and laser. 

 

Call 310-998-5533 and speak to one of our patient care coordinator about your option for face lift surgery.  Ear revision can be performed as an outpatient procedure with minimal recovery and minimal anesthesia.
