Earlobe Repair Surgery

Earlobe repair is quickly becoming one of the most requested surgical procedures in the US.

Because earlobes are made up entirely of cartilage, damage to the earlobe is easy. This can happen from prolonged wear of long or heavy earrings. They can cause stretching and even tear the lobe. Damage to the earlobe structure can also happen if multiple piercings are made too close together or too close to the bottom of the lobe.

Dr. Roth can perform earlobe repair surgery in a matter of minutes, with no downtime. Whether you suffer from an elongated earlobe as a result of the aging process or from earring usage, Dr. Roth can repair your earlobe and provide a naturally rounded result.

Torn earlobe repair is an outpatient procedure that produces minimal downtime. With Dr. Roth's meticulous hand and advanced techniques, others may not be able to tell that one received the procedure. In fact, one might even be able to get their earlobe re-pierced if desired after torn earlobe repair has finished healing (usually after 6 weeks to 6 months). With Dr. Roth's skill, the resultant hairline scar is virtually invisible.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are some of the common earlobe procedures?

The most common earlobe deformities are split earlobes, enlarged piercing holes, and elongated earlobes. The first two are related to trauma. Big earlobes often result from prolonged use of heavy earrings or even the natural aging process.

What is a split earlobe deformity?

A split earlobe is a separation of the skin on the lobe causing a split-like appearance.

What type of anesthesia is used for earlobe surgery?

Earlobe repairs can be performed in the office under local anesthesia. However, they are commonly performed with other facial rejuvenation procedures such as a facelift and fat grafting that often require the person to be asleep.

How long does the procedure last?

Each earlobe can take about 30 minutes to complete.

Do stitches need to come out?

Some may need to come out and others may stay in and dissolve. If the dissolvable ones don't dissolve within two weeks, they can be removed in the office.
