If the earlobe is damaged through trauma or surgery, then the defect can be fixed using an ear lobe repair.  The defect is commonly referred to as a split earlobe. Most commonly, we see patients who have earlobes that are stretched and torn following earring use.

Is this right for me?

If your ear lobes are torn or stretched then this surgery will benefit you.

What does this involve?

Repairing a split earlobe is a relatively straightforward, uncomplicated and effective procedure. You will have a local anaesthetic. There are few risks or complications with this surgery. Your surgeon will carefully plan and design how to repair your ear and discuss all this with you; such planning is crucial to reach the optimal shape and size of the earlobe. The scars can be placed in hidden areas away from view and in a way that gives strength to the earlobe for future re-piercing.
