If you’re self-conscious about the size or shape of your ear lobes, or if the lobes have split so that you can’t wear earrings, the surgeons at Bella Vou can help.


Earlobe Correction or Lobuloplasty is surgery to lift, resize, or repair the earlobes. Skin ageing and the effects of gravity can make the earlobes thin, long, saggy, and wrinkled. Wearing heavy earrings can make things worse, dragging them down and sometimes splitting or tearing the ear lobes. The specialist surgeons at Bella Vou can repair any damage, reduce the size of stretched lobes, restore symmetry, and rejuvenate the earlobes.

The scars will take around two to three months to heal fully and gain strength. After this stage, it is usually safe to re-pierce on the same site. Most people can enjoy wearing earrings again, although it's sensible to avoid very heavy jewellery.

Step 1. Free, no-obligation consultation

Bella Vou offers every client a free consultation with an expert, accredited cosmetic surgeon with no obligation to proceed to treatment. The consultation is an opportunity to discuss the concerns you have with your ears, the results you want to achieve, and whether surgery is the best way to reach those goals. Sometimes, fillers can be injected as an alternative way of temporarily lifting and rejuvenating the lobes.

Bella Vou will always give you an honest and impartial professional opinion. Mr Amir Nakhdjevani says:

‘We make sure that we advise people correctly about whether surgery is right for them. We treat everyone as if they were our family. At Bella Vou, we never pressurise people or try to sell procedures. It's always about giving an honest opinion and honest advice.’

Step 2. Meet your surgeon

You will be offered a further appointment with your consultant before proceeding to Earlobe Reduction and Repair. This will give you a chance to find out more about the procedure and to ask any questions you may have.

Step 3. Preparation for Earlobe Reduction and Repair surgery

Earlobe Reduction and Repair is usually a straightforward procedure. You may be asked to stop taking over-the-counter medicines such as aspirin and ibuprofen, which can increase reduce the risk of bleeding. Quitting smoking cigarettes and e-cigarettes can help wound healing and reduce the risk of complications.

On the day of your Lobuloplasty, you’ll be personally welcomed to Bella Vou, given a gown to wear and escorted to the state-of-the-art operating theatre.

Step 4. What happens during Earlobe Reduction and Repair surgery?

The surgeon will cleanse the ears and inject local anaesthetic. Within a few seconds, the area will be numb. You will be able to feel movement, but the procedure will be pain-free.

The surgeon will make a small cut in the skin behind the ear, then carefully excise the stretched skin and remove any areas that have torn. The skin will be refashioned and sutured together in layers with different strength sutures.

In most cases, absorbable stitches are used, but for some people, non-absorbable stitches are required, which will be removed 5 to 7 days after surgery.

Step 5. Recovery from Earlobe Reduction and Repair surgery

You will be able to go home on the day of the procedure. The scar will be covered with showerproof dressing tape to protect the wound.

After five to seven days, the nurse and wound care specialist will check your scars, remove the tape, and any non-absorbable sutures and ensure you're healthy and well. After two weeks, you will be advised to massage and moisturise the scar to speed up the healing and soften the scar. The staff at Bella Vou will carefully monitor your recovery and provide support every step of the way.

At around six weeks, your surgeon will check your progress, and at six months, you'll be offered a follow-up check to ensure that you remain healthy and happy with your results. However, if you have any questions or concerns, the staff at Bella Vou are always on hand to offer support, day and night.
