Torn Earlobe Repair
Safe Correction of Overstretched or Torn Earlobes
- Qualified doctor completes treatment quickly.
- Earlobes are repaired with minimal scarring.
- Downtime is minimal.
Overstretched or torn earlobes can be repaired by a qualified doctor. Overstretched or torn earlobes may be caused by accidental traumas such as the pulling of earrings, heavy-weighted earrings or may have been deliberately stretched to fit gauges and can be restored with minor surgery.
At Bodyvie, our medical director, Dr Andrew Weber, has a background in dermatology and minor operations to safely treat overstretched or torn earlobes.
During your treatment, Dr Weber will first clean your earlobe with antiseptic and apply a local anaesthetic to the earlobe to provide comfort during your treatment.
During treatment, a small amount of skin bordering the tear or hole of the earlobe will be cut and will then be precisely stitched back together. By creating a very small new wound to the earlobe and adding a few precise stitches, this promotes healing by holding the earlobe together. Dr Weber will carefully stitch the earlobe back together to ensure the bottom border of the ear is aligned to avoid possible notches or an uneven line of the bottom of the ear.
Your stitches will remain in the ear for around seven days before being reviewed and removed by your doctor. The wound will completely heal and close within a month’s time and the scarring will fade within the year.
We encourage an in-depth consultation with Dr Weber prior to proceeding with treatment to prepare you with pre and post care advice to achieve optimal results and healing, restoring you overstretched or torn earlobe.
Your doctor will first carefully clean the earlobe that will be treated with antiseptic before administering local anaesthetic to numb your ear. Your doctor will then make a small cut to the inner border of the tear or overstretched hole to create a precise and small wound to promote healing which will be carefully stitched. These sutures will remain in the earlobe for around seven days before being reviewed and removed by your doctor.
You will only need one treatment to correct your torn or overstretched earlobe.
You will see results immediately. The wound from the earlobe correction will close completely within a month and the scar from the minor surgery will fade within a year.
