What is Ear Lobe Repair?
Ear lobe repair is a surgical procedure that restores the natural function and appearance of the earlobe after stretching or tearing. If you have a stretched or torn earlobe from heavy earrings or injury, or an enlarged earlobe piercing from gauges and you are interested in learning more about treatment, we encourage you to schedule an appointment with one of our expert dermatology providers at your earliest convenience.
What Can I Expect During My Ear Lobe Repair?
The expert dermatology providers at Scottsdale Skin Boutique & Dermatology will remove the skin lining the stretch or tear which will reduce the size of your earlobe. Then sutures will be placed to repair the opening.
What Can I Expect after My Ear Lobe Repair?
Optimal healing may require activity restrictions from 1-3 weeks depending on the site and complexity of the procedure. Swelling, tenderness, and mild discomfort are normal following treatment and typically resolve within a few days. Patients are encouraged to wait 8 to 12 weeks before re-piercing their ears.
