Earlobe Repair

One of the most common cosmetic ear surgeries is earlobe repair. It can be partial or total.

The causes of this problem are as follows:

  • Frequent use of heavy earrings
  • Use of lobe expanders
  • Wearing earrings in an abnormal position
  • By trauma (“pull” with the earring on)

Fortunately, it is a simple and effective procedure that can solve these problems.

During an earlobe repair, Dr. Chopra first injects the stretched or torn earlobe with a local anesthetic to numb the area. The specific technique that Dr. Chopra then uses to repair and reconstruct your torn earlobes depends on the extent and complexity of your earlobe damage.
In most cases, the plastic surgeon removes any scar tissue from the split or stretched piercing that would otherwise prevent the repaired earlobe from healing smoothly. Once the scar tissue is removed, and fine stitches are used to close the earlobe.
