Split or torn earlobes as well as earlobes that have damaged by trauma can be restored to their normal appearance using simple surgical techniques in an office setting. Earlobes can typically be damaged or become misshapen due to heavy earrings or poor piercing techniques.
Using local anesthesia while you remain awake, your cosmetic surgeon will stitch together damaged or deformed areas of the earlobe to achieve a balanced look with very little scarring. You may even be able to have your ear re-pierced at the same time. Patients typically experience very little pain from earlobe repair surgery, and little, if any, downtime.
