The Earlobe Repair Surgery Treatment

Understanding the earlobe repair surgery

How does an Earlobe repair surgery work?

An Earlobe surgery is a procedure designed to correct any torn, stretched, or damaged earlobes. Just like any other treatment, a consultation is a must for this procedure to further assess the skin condition and the extent of the damage. The goal is to restore its natural look and functionality. It is commonly performed under local anaesthetic in outpatients and will take approximately 30 – 45 minutes for both ears.

During the earlobe surgery, the surgeon will make precise cuts in removing any damaged skin. Once it's carefully cut, the surgeon will then suture the edges of the earlobe with fine stitches. This is important in helping the skin heal correctly and maintain its normal shape. Additionally, wearing earrings — especially heavy earrings — can lengthen the piercing hole and eventually pull through over time.

Here at Harley Street Skin Clinic, we've done millions of procedures, and you can be sure that you are in safe hands as we provide high quality services to address your skin concerns. There are different types of Earlobe repair so it is best to have an appointment with one of our skin experts here at Harley Street Skin Clinic.

Earlobe Repair Before & Afters

The remarkable difference a Harley Street Skin Clinic treatment can provide

Effectively, Earlobe Repair is the name given to the surgical correction of the lower ear (a.k.a. the lobe). Depending on the needs of the patient, this may involve anything from cutting away excess tissue in order to make the lobes appear smaller or more proportioned, stitching acutely split/stretched earlobes, or simply subscising visible or painful scar tissue.

If you are instead interested in learning more about the correction of the upper ear - such as ear pinning - please feel free to explore our page on Otoplasty to learn more about this procedure.

HEAVY EARRINGS: A common offender for this kind of earlobe damage is repetitive wear of heavy earrings. This is because of sustained stress on a very small area of skin, i.e. the original piercing. This can leave the lobe distorted over time - even when the offending earring has been removed. This, in turn, makes catching or even tearing the remaining skin far more likely.

MODIFICATION JEWELLERY: Similarly, ears that have been damaged from years of using ear stretchers, plugs and gauges can also benefit from Earlobe Repair. Whilst removing the stretchers may help to shrink the enlarged hole left behind, most simply will not return to normal size without intervention. Here, Earlobe Repair is a powerful form of damage reversal.

This kind of injury can leave behind severe/tender scar tissue that results in insightly bumps or lesions. In these instances, this damaged tissue can be corrected using minor subcision.
