What is Earlobe Repair?

The hole of a pierced ear can become stretched, elongated, or split as a result of wearing large, hanging earrings or accidents involving the tearing of the earlobe. Dr. Kristen Ann Aliano Messina and board-certified facial plastic surgeon Dr. Vu Ho perform earlobe surgery procedures to repair damaged skin on the earlobe at Beyond Beautiful Texas in Plano, TX. The procedure is a simple office-based procedure that will be done under local anesthesia. Treatment will normally take approximately 30 minutes. A week later, sutures are removed, and re-piercing can be done in 12 weeks. Patients will be left with natural-looking earlobes following surgery.

Ideal Candidates for Earlobe Repair?

The best candidates for earlobe repair:

  • Have stretched-out earlobe piercings
  • May have a torn or damaged earlobe
  • Are self-conscious about their oversized earlobes

What to Expect During Earlobe Repair

Earlobe repair is an outpatient procedure that normally requires only local anesthesia. Small incisions in the earlobe may be required.   Excess skin from the ear can also be removed, if needed.  The wounds are closed with sutures.  The ears can be repierced in approximately 12 months.

Anticipated Results

Following earlobe repair, the ears may be dressed to provide protection. There is typically minimal pain associated with this procedure, but patients should expect to experience tenderness and swelling. Sutures may be removed 1 week after surgery.  Patients often respond positively to this procedure.
