Repair of Pixie Ear Deformity

Description
The "pixie" ear deformity can be recognized by its "stuck on" or "pulled" appearance, which is caused by the tension involving the facelift cheek and jawline skin flaps at the earlobe attachment point. In many cases, this deformity may be improved in the office using local anesthesia. In more severe cases, a revision facelift may be advisable.

Candidates for Pixie Ear Repair
You may be a candidate for repair of a Pixie Ear if the 'pulled' appearance of your earlobe, often following facelift surgery, draws unwanted attention, detracts or distracts from your other facial features, or if you find this appearance unsatisfactory.

Recovery after Earlobe Repair
Early soreness is well controlled with oral pain medications. Swelling and bruising are much improved by 3-5 days. Sutures are removed in 5-7 days. Return to non-exertional work is permissible the following day. Some adults prefer to return to work after 5-7 days. Full activity is permissible by 2-3 weeks.
