Earlobe repair can restore stretched or split earlobes to their natural appearance. Earlobe repair is a relatively simple procedure done in the office with local anesthesia. To allow the lobe of the ear to heal back together, the provider cuts away the healed skin on the inside of the long hole or torn earlobe. The fresh edges are then sutured back together. Sutures are removed after approximately 1-2 weeks. Should you want to re-pierce your ears, we do that 6 weeks later, to the right or left of the scar, with special attention paid not to pierce the ear at the scar to prevent re-tearing.
