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.
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 ear lobe. The procedure is usually carried out under local anaesthetic with a minimal level of discomfort experienced by the patient.
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 colour. 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.
