What is Ear Lobe Repair?
Torn earlobes are surprisingly common, and may be caused by trauma or simply wearing heavy earrings for an extended period of time. If your ears are pierced, this may put you at greater risk for a variety of damage, including tearing, stretching or keloid scarring of the area. This is easily repaired, however, through a simple ear lobe repair procedure done right here in our office. Dr. Williams is able to restore the natural shape of your ear lobe using standard plastic surgery methods.

How is Ear Lobe Repair Performed?
Ear lobe repair is a fairly simple procedure that can be performed right here in our offices using a local anesthetic. Once the area is numb, Dr. Williams will remove the scar tissue and remove the skin along the split to create an edge that can be stitched together. Once he bandages you up, you'll be on your way home in no time.
What Kind of Post-Operative Ear Lobe Repair Care Can I Expect?
While you may experience some discomfort after the anesthesia wears off, this can be controlled with any over-the-counter pain medication. You'll be able to remove the bandages after a couple of days, but it may take up to six weeks for you to see the full results of your ear lobe repair. If you miss the look of earrings on your ears, you'll be able to wear clip-ons about one to two weeks after the procedure.
What are the Typical Results of Ear Lobe Repair?
Ear lobe repair will effectively return your ear lobe back to its normal shape. And while some scarring may occur, this will fade over time. If you choose to re-pierce your ears, you can do so after about three or four months. Talk to your surgeon about any concerns prior to the procedure.
