What you should know about Earlobe Repair
Heavy earrings, aging or trauma can all affect the integrity and shape of the earlobes. This can lead to disfigurement and inability to wear earrings. Earlobe repair, regardless of the type and degree of damage (Torn, Gauged or Enlarged) can restore the natural anatomy and shape of the earlobe and allow for the wear of earrings once again.
Earlobe surgery is done under local anesthesia, typically in the office and has minimally to no downtime. Sutures normally dissolve themselves in 10-14 days and a new hole can be made after a couple of weeks.
Length of surgery: 15-30 min
Anesthesia: local anesthesia
Hospitalization: office surgery
