Repair your Stretched or Torn Ear Lobe
Ear Lobe Repair Surgery is usually performed on patients that have damaged or over-sized ear piercings/earring holes.
Suitable candidates for ear lobe repair would have a stretched or torn ear lobe and not suffering from any of the following:
- Patients prone to chronic infections.
- Patients who are pregnant or breast-feeding.
- Patients who have active cold sores.
- Those who are taking systemic steroids.
- Those taking anti-coagulant medication.
- Patients with history of keloid scarring.
Local anaesthetic is injected with a fine needle. Once the area is numb, the damaged earring holes are gently and carefully excised. The incision is then meticulously repaired using fine stitching on the front and the back of the ear lobe. Stitches are removed in 5 to 7 days. There is virtually no pain associated with ear lobe repair.
Ear lobe repair takes about 30–60 minutes.
Infection is the biggest risk with ear lobe repair. We advise our patients to keep a close eye on the treated area during the healing phase, to keep it clean and notify us immediately if there are any signs of infection.
Our ear lobe repair surgery starts from $450.
