Earlobe Repair

Earlobe repair is a quick and effective cosmetic surgery procedure to correct ears stretched by tribal ear piercing (flesh tunnels) or split earlobes torn when normal earrings rip. The area consists of a delicate piece of skin that is made up of fat and skin.

Procedure time & anaesthetic

The procedure is tailored to the individual and may require subsequent ear piercing after surgery. The surgery generally takes 45-60 minutes depending on the extent of the reshaping of the earlobe.

The procedure is usually carried out under local anesthetic with a minimal level of discomfort experienced by the patient.

Recovery time & after care

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 color. After 4-6 months the 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.
