Repair of split ear lobe-Lobuloplasty
The increasing practice of ear piercing has resulted in more and more requests for ear lobe repairs. Piercing your ears puts the earlobes at risk for stretching and tearing.
Earlobe repair surgery fixes the split and enables you to wear earrings again.
Earlobe repair is a relatively simple procedure. To allow the lobe of the ear to heal back together, the surgeon cuts away the healed skin on the inside of the torn earlobe. The fresh edges are sutured back together. Sutures are removed after 5-7 days. The procedure is done under local anesthesia.
The re piercing is done only after 6-8 weeks . Be careful not to have your ear re-pierced in the scar or just above the scar. The scar is weaker than the surrounding tissue so it will tear more easily. Have the new piercing done to the right or left of the scar.
