Ear Lobe Repair
Beautiful ears for beautiful earrings.
What is Ear Lobe Repair?
You may have stretched and even damaged your earlobes by wearing heavy, dangling earrings. Or you may have torn an earlobe in an accident, or gotten a keloid scar as a result of a simple ear piercing.
Earlobe repair can "refresh" and suture together the edges of your damage or tear. It's a relatively common procedure that takes only 15 to 30 minutes.
It's performed under local anesthesia on an outpatient basis. Ear lobe repair fixes the partial or complete tear through a pierced ear
lobe caused by heavy earrings, or other things we mentioned above. It takes more precision to repair than a simple cut, since the forces that created it involved not just cutting, but stretching. Also, usually, the tear occurred years ago, and has healed in a less-than-ideal fashion. We repair the lobe, and then pierce it months later. Our goal is to make the torn ear as similar in appearance to its counterpart. We'll even re- pierce the ear for free.
