Ear Lobe Split Repair

The science bit

What is Ear Lobe Split Repair?

Wearing heavy earrings or ear spacers can alter the shape of your ear lobe. After a time the lobe can split all or part of the way, leaving you with either a forked earlobe, a lobe so badly split that you can’t wear earrings without difficulty, or a swollen lobe that looks unsightly.


What Can I Expect from Earlobe Split Repair?

We administer a small amount of anaesthetic so you won’t feel any discomfort when we repair the torn or enlarged ear lobe. Once the two sides of the split are prepared for joining, we put in a couple of neat little stitches to finish the repair.

How Long Does It Last?

This is a permanent repair. You won’t be able to wear earrings or any sort for 8-10 weeks after the repair to allow your skin to stick properly to the repaired ear.

Is There Any Discomfort?

Most surgical procedures come with risks. Earlobe repair involves a minimal risk of discomfort and infection.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Is The Recovery Time From Ear Lobe Repair?
There is no reason why you can’t return to work immediately afterwards, but bear in mind you’ll have a small plaster protecting your ear, visible unless you have long hair. You will need to return to the clinic to have your stitches out and to let us check the healing process.
How Will I Feel?
Eventually you’ll be able to wear earrings again, you will be able to wear your hair up and you will be able to wear earrings. You will feel less self-conscious and happy to show your ears in social situations.
