Why Seek Earlobe Repair

Earlobes are often torn by gauges, heavy earrings, or trauma. Many people dislike the way torn or misshapen ears look but are unsure what to do about it. Fortunately, earlobes can be easily corrected with a very minor surgery. Rest assured that even the largest “gauged” earlobes can be restored to a natural appearance. Your ears can even be re-pierced after they have fully healed.

How Do You Repair An Earlobe?

At the start of the procedure, the earlobe is anesthetized to ensure a painless process. Depending on the severity of the tear, your surgeon may choose from any of a number of techniques. Sometimes a simple suturing of the edges can be done for minor tears. In more severe cases, techniques like tissue grafting, wedge excision, or Z-plasty are preferred.

In some unique cases, a dermal filler can be used to add lost volume to the earlobe. This approach is usually used when earlobes have lost volume or elasticity because of age. Dermal fillers are simply injected into the area and almost immediately result in an improved appearance.

Recovery From Earlobe Repair

Recovery is very easy, though extensive reparations may require a bit more recovery time. In most cases, patients will experience swelling and bruising, which subsides in a few days to a week. Sutures are removed 6-7 days after the repair procedure. If dissolvable sutures were used, they will break down in a similar time frame. Your surgeon will provide a careful guide for recovery that should be faithfully adhered to for the best results.
