Very commonly, earlobes can be damaged and stretched out from wearing heavy earrings or gauge earrings over time. This can thin out the earlobe skin and leave it looking deflated and saggy.

what is anearlobe repair?

The earlobes can also be damaged if the earring is pulled accidentally. This can result in the earlobe having a long slit in it, rather than a small puncture for the earring to sit in. Alternatively, it can result in a completely torn earlobe with the edges separated and split apart, so that an earring cannot be worn anymore.

To improve the appearance of the earlobe and reconstruct the tissue, an Earlobe Repair can be done. This involves removing the torn and stretched out skin and sewing the edges of the skin back together.

How is an Earlobe Repairperformed?

An Earlobe Repair is done very comfortably under local anesthesia. To reconstruct the earlobe, the slit or torn part of the earlobe, including the old piercing, is removed to create “fresh” edges of skin that can be stitched together. The skin edges are precisely and carefully stitched back together to create a smooth edge to the earlobe.

You will immediately notice the change in the shape of the earlobe after the procedure. The swelling will go down over the next few days. It is important to protect the scar from the sun, especially during the early healing phase. Massaging the scar and using silicone gel will also help optimize the result of the scar.

If you would like to re-pierce the earlobe, this can be done about 2 months after the earlobe repair.
