Torn earlobe is a frequent occurrence because of using heavy ear rings. Large earrings that dangle are caught on clothing or grasped by a child. The result may be a partially or completely torn earlobe. Repair of a torn earlobe is done under a local anesthetic. The procedure consists of freshening the edges of the split and placement of sutures to complete the repair of the earlobe.
Depending on the deformity, reconstruction can take different forms. In all methods, the skin lining the slot is removed creating a raw edge to rebuild. When tissue has been lost, however, the procedure is more complicated, and reconstruction involves creating normal proportions around a somewhat small ear.
Fine nylone/ethilone sutures are used.
I use an operating microscope (if time permit) to get fine approximation and better result.
Sutures are removed 6-7 days after the repair procedure. A thin layer of antibiotic ointment is the only dressing applied in most cases. A little drainage from the wound is to be expected. One can take bath after putting little antibiotic ointment over the wound.
Infection is very rare.
One should wait six weeks after surgery before ear piercing and wearing earrings. The scar should be soft before you get your lobe re-pierced, approximately 2-3 months after the earlobe repair.
