What Is Earlobe Repair?

Earlobe repair is a cosmetic surgery that corrects stretched and torn earlobes. Ear jewelry has been worn by men and women for centuries, and one of today’s most popular body piercings is lobe gauging, which uses different sized plugs to expand a hole in the earlobe. Sometimes, though, patients experience unintentional earlobe stretching that is caused by heavy earrings, or they simply no longer want to have large openings in their earlobes. Earlobe repair is recommended for these patients, as well as patients who experience trauma to the earlobe.

Benefits Of Earlobe Repair

Earlobe repair is a relatively simple surgical procedure that restores the natural shape of the earlobe and aids in the healing process.

Who Is A Candidate For Earlobe Repair?

Earlobe repair is generally a safe and effective treatment for many types of cosmetic issues with the earlobes. During your consultation appointment, Dr. Arzadon discusses your earlobe repair, including the degree of correction that you can expect from the procedure.

The Earlobe Repair Procedure

Most patients remain comfortable during the procedure with only a topical or local anesthesia. If the earlobe is torn, Dr. Arzadon uses stitches to repair the tear. To correct elongated earlobes, small amounts of tissue may be excised before the stitches are placed.
