Facial aesthetics develop depending on the symmetry and harmony of the facial skeletons and soft structures. The auricular lobule has an important place in face and ear aesthetics. It is generally conical and round in shape and is an important anatomical formation that allows women to wear accessories such as earrings. It has different shapes, and sometimes it can attract a lot of attention on the face.
In different societies, auricular lobules are pierced for religious, cosmetic, and social reasons; however, they are associated with the level of societal development. A partial or complete tear of the auricular lobule is an important situation that is very common in women and leads to cosmetic deformity. The use of earrings and heavy metals such as “piercing” leads to permanent deformities in the auricular lobule owing to the effect of gravity. It causes tearing in the auricular lobule due to age, trauma, and mechanical factors. The most frequent causes of the clefts in the auricular lobule are that the holes made in the auricule for ornamentation expand over time and that the ornaments separate the lips of the cleft from each other with the influence of gravity, thereby causing permanent holes.
Auricular labioplasty is an easy surgical procedure. This surgery has a low risk of complication with very satisfactory results; therefore, it should be recommended for patients with lobular deformities.
