Surgical earlobe repair is a safe and effective solution for those who have experienced a torn or stretched earlobe due to heavy earrings, an accident, or aging.
What is Earlobe Repair Surgery?
If you have a torn, stretched, or damaged earlobe, surgical repair can help restore your earlobe's shape and appearance. This outpatient procedure is performed under local anesthesia, meaning you will be awake but not feel any pain during the surgery.
During the procedure, your surgeon will remove any damaged tissue and then stitch the edges of the tear or incision together. The stitches used are usually dissolvable, so you won't need to have them removed later. Surgical earlobe repair is a safe and effective way to restore the appearance of your earlobes, and most people can return to their normal activities within a few days after the procedure.
