If you’ve long wished to address issues with the appearance of your earlobes, this simple procedure may be a perfect solution.

Natural and Functional Results

Earlobe repair is a simple, in-office procedure to treat a notched, sagging, or cleft earlobe. In other words, this type of ear surgery aims to leave you with a natural-looking and functional earlobe. Patients will frequently obtain a subsequent piercing once the surgery is complete and has had time to heal.

Is Earlobe Repair Right for Me?

There are a variety of reasons why patients seek the earlobe repair procedure. Split or torn earlobes can be present from birth; however, it's more commonly associated with trauma or tension from heavy dangle earrings after some time. Many patients also seek this treatment to address stretched or "gauged earlobes." If issues with the structure or appearance of your earlobes affect your self-esteem or make it difficult to wear earrings, you might be a perfect candidate for this procedure.

Surgical Procedure

Earlobe repair surgery is a quick procedure typically performed during a short clinical office visit. Therefore, the length of time varies slightly based on the extent of the defect, earlobe damage, and repair. The procedure is done in the office under local anesthesia.

Are the Results Permanent?

The results are permanent. However, there is always a small risk of recurrence. In addition, this risk increases with the continued use of heavy earrings.

Recovery and Results

You can expect to have your sutures in place for the first five days, but a dressing will not be required. Patients can also expect mild redness and swelling after the surgery. Fortunately, earlobe repair is a simple procedure, so there is usually very little pain. It’s also worth noting that the results are generally permanent, with a small risk of recurrence. This risk increases with the continued use of heavy earrings. Once the site has had time to heal, Dr. Thompson can perform a new ear-piercing procedure. It is necessary to have him perform this step, as he will be sure to avoid the incision lines associated with the previous repair.
