Earlobe Repair

Earlobes—the part of the ear that typically consists of a small, cartilage-free patch of skin—can become tornsplit or ripped. This can occur for a number of reasons, ranging from accidents, specific lobe-expanding jewelry (such as gauges) or heavy earrings.

Is Earlobe Repair Right for Me?

Earlobe repair is a useful procedure for most everyone suffering from torn earlobes, split earlobes or elongated piercing tracts. These conditions can occur in people of nearly any age and either gender.

When earlobes are damaged, stretched or split, it can cause pain, look unsightly and make earrings difficult or impossible to wear. If you're suffering from any of these issues, you don't have to live with damaged earlobes. Repair is possible with earlobe reconstruction, also known as otoplasty.

How Does Earlobe Repair Work?

Earlobe repair is a relatively simple cosmetic surgery procedure. The exact nature of the earlobe repair depends on your specific needs as a patient and the level of damage to your lobes. During the procedure, the earlobe is slice and sutured back together.

This allows the ear to heal and retake its original shape and length. Because the amount of incisions and damage during earlobe repair are minimal, complications are rarely an issue. The only way to see if earlobe repair surgeryis a fit for your damage lobes is to work with a professional cosmetic surgeon.
