What is the Earlobe Repair Surgery about?

Earring hole repair is a cosmetic surgery that involves repairing a section of the ear that is pulled out or making the hole smaller. Surgeons usually perform this type of surgical procedure on patients under local anaesthesia.

It is a safe, minimally invasive reconstructive surgery that aims to restore the appearance of torn or elongated earring holes. 

Which Doctor can perform the Earlobe Repair Procedure?

It is the dermatologist or the plastic surgeon who can perform the plastic surgery to fix earring holes.

A medical consultation at a hospital or a clinic, before the operation of the split earlobe repairing is mandatory. You’ll have to inform your doctor about any chronic illnesses or your current medication. A blood test will also be necessary.

After the medical advice of the specialist, you must interrupt any anticoagulation medications (drugs that prevent blood clotting).

The process of the Plastic Surgery to Fix Earring Holes

Before the Surgery

Before the beginning of the surgery, the area will be disinfected and marked for the incision. The earlobe will be sedated using a local anaesthetic to ensure the comfort of the patient during the procedure.

During the surgery

The operation takes place in an operating room, in a sterile environment, under local anesthesia. It doesn't require a medical stay in a hospital or a clinic.

To treat a torn earlobe, the surgeon make an incision in each earlobe. Then he removes any damaged tissue around each earring hole.

The rupture in the lobe may be incomplete and does not reach the bottom of the ear. In this case, the doctor will cut the oval-shaped and stitch it back. If the tear is in the lower part of the earlobe, your surgeon may stretch the tear entirely through the ear and cut out the skin.

Thereafter, he closes the patient's incisions with surgical sutures, which he will remove after one to two post-surgical weeks.

After the surgery

The patient returns the same day, with a bandage that he can remove the next day, leaving the stitches uncovered. He may experience a bruise that will quickly disappear.

You can alleviate the pain with the use of painkillers and return to your normal activities. A medical check-up will be mandatory after one week.

Are there any Risks after the operation?

The risk of bleeding is very rare. However, you should stop consuming any blood-thinning drugs before and after the surgery. Therefore, if you feel any discomfort or experiment abnormal pain after the surgery, you should immediately contact your doctor.

What are the postoperative Risks?

The risks are first rare but like any possible surgery. These are :

  • Haemorrhagic risk;
  • Infectious risk;
  • Scarring disorders;
  • Medical allergy.

To avoid the risk of infection, the respect of hygiene before and after surgery is mandatory. Added to that, you should respect the instructions of your doctor to avoid the risk of bleeding.

Scarring from earlobe reduction is usually very negligible.

How long does it take to heal after an Earlobe Surgery?

The main purpose of the earlobe surgery is to restore the original appearance of the ears. It also aims to create a better position of the earring hole that is well suited with the rest of the face.

Recovery after a plastic surgery to fix earrings holes takes about one week.

Is it possible to re pierce an Earring Hole after earlobe surgery?

After the earlobe's healing, you can get your ears re pierced without any risk.  When piercing your ears again, you should not get the same spot pierced, as the scar tissue may cause complications.

However, you should consult a professional piercer who will examine the area you want to be re perforated. Sometimes, the earring hole may not be totally healed in the inside, and this may lead to an infection.
