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

You are able to go home the same day. There is very little discomfort following this surgery. Any discomfort is generally relieved with simple painkillers such as Paracetamol or ibuprofen. Normally, stitches are placed to secure the wound and these are removed at 1 week.
It is usually quite difficult for the earlobes to return back to their original size/shape once they have been stretched. The ears can be stretched following surgery (facelift surgery can sometime lead to a stretched scar aka 'pixie ear', see Pixie Ear Correction).
Other causes can be large earrings that pull or reshape the earlobe. All these will require a surgical solution to address the problem.
