What is an Earlobe Repair?

Elongated or torn earlobes can be caused by many factors:

  • Heavy earrings worn for long periods of time
  • Gauges that have stretched the earlobe
  • Earrings getting caught or pulled, such as on clothing or bags
  • Multiple piercings placed too close together or too close to the lower lobe
  • Sudden trauma
  • Age

How is an Earlobe Repair Performed?

This treatment is completed under local anesthesia in the comfort of our office. To begin the procedure, the earlobe is cleaned and then anesthetized using lidocaine injections. Once fully numbed, the damaged skin will be removed from the earlobe and the wound will be closed in layers, eliminating tension from the outer part of the incision to ensure optimal healing and future earlobe strength.

Does This Procedure Hurt?

Earlobe Repairs are done under local anesthesia. The numbing preparations allow for a painless procedure.

What is Recovery Like After an Earlobe Repair?

Patients will have sutures that will remain in place for 1-2 weeks after Earlobe Repair. Following removal of the sutures, there is typically minimal scarring where the procedure was performed.

Can I Pierce My Ears After an Earlobe Repair?

Yes. In approximately three months following the procedure, you can pierce or re-pierce your ear(s). Our office provides re-piercing services at no additional cost; this is automatically included as part of the procedure for anyone that wishes to enjoy this added benefit. Patients can re-pierce using their own stud earring.

How Much Does This Procedure Cost?

Your Earlobe Repair treatment at Cosmetic Enhancement Center of New England will depend on several factors, including the complexity of the repair and the number of repairs needed. During your free consultation, we will discuss your goals to determine the best treatment for you.

To make this procedure and other services more affordable, we are proud to offer financing through CareCredit®.

review stars

The visit hit all 3 of my personal expectations when I visit a doctors office. My wait time was very short – my provider was professional and skilled – the check out process was friendly and efficient.

Dr. Atkins is incredibly professional and helpful. [The] office staff are personable. I travel an hour each way for this place and staff.

John

The staff at Cosmetic Enhancement Center are knowledgeable/professional and truly care about the client/patient experience. What I found refreshing was the fact that they were honest about the approach and process that was right for me and not merely trying to ‘sell a treatment’ for the sake of profiting. Honest, professional and they have your best interest in mind.
