Earlobe Repair

What is Earlobe Repair?
Earlobe surgery or repair is a cosmetic surgery procedure performed to restore the appearance of earlobes that have been torn or stretched due to ear tearing, trauma, or piercing, including the insertion of ear gauges or large heavy ear rings. The procedure can be done in office with local anesthesia and requires little to no downtime. Earlobe repair can return a natural look to your ears no matter what the cause of minor trauma, tearing, stretching, or sagging.

How is Earlobe Repair Performed?
Earlobe repair is a straight forward procedure, normally taking an hour to perform and requiring little or no downtime. Using local anesthesia, the ear area is treated first. Within the area of trauma, incisions facilitate cleaning and reshaping the inner tissues, behind the earlobe, and on the front surface of the earlobe. The incision is closed using fine stitches to complete the procedure.
