Cosmetic Earlobe Repair

Prolonged use of heavy earrings can make your ear holes bigger and elongated. Sometimes you can hide them with your hair but it’s not possible for women and men with short hair. Getting cosmetic earlobe repair can fix this problem for you. For some people it might be just a wish to close old holes which might be torn or misplaced when piercing and get a new hole pierced. Some people might want to change the shape of their earlobes.

Cosmetic Earlobe Repair

Earlobe Repair Procedure

The procedure is performed under local anesthesia and completed in an hour. The earlobe is made numb using local anesthetic via injection. For a ear lobe that is torn, the procedure consists of “freshening” the edges. To achieve this small amount of skin is removed. The split is then sutured to create normal looking earlobe.
Another technique used for earlobe split repair is with rotation flap. This is a type of skin reconstruction in which semicircular skin flap is rotated to cover the split. The advantage of this technique is that patients can safely and conveniently wear earrings two weeks post procedure instead of having to wait up to six months with the standard procedure. The length of this procedure takes between 30 -40 minutes per earlobe.
To change the shape of the earlobe, unwanted tissue is removed and the area is sutured to look normal.

After your surgery and beyond

After your earlobe repair surgery there will be small scars on the ears which will at first be red, but will eventually fade to a pale silvery colour. After 4-6 months the healing is complete and your earlobe should look almost completely normal with no obvious signs of the previous piercing. Ears can be re-pierced 6 months after the operation has taken place

Earlobe repair aftercare

Since this procedure is performed under local anesthesia patients can go home immediately after the procedure. A very small dressing is placed on the earlobe which can be removed next day. An antibiotic cream needs to be applied topically over the sutures. Sutures will need to be removed 10 days after the repair procedure. Healing generally takes 4 to 6 weeks. Earlobes can be re-pierced after 2 to 4 weeks by ear piercing gun.

Torn Earlobe Repair Surgery Side Effects

Since it is a minimally invasive procedure risks are small but may include swelling, bruising, and discomfort which last for 2 to 3 days.
