What is Earlobe Repair?
Whether your earlobes have been stretched intentionally or have gotten more lax over the years with the use of heavy jewelry, earlobe repair is a minimally invasive surgery that you may benefit from. Earlobe repair involves restoring the natural look of a full, natural earlobe with no holes or punctures. Patients who have had their earlobes repaired are free to re-pierce them when they are fully healed and continue to wear their favorite jewelry.
What Can I Expect During my Earlobe Repair?
Before your treatment begins, a local anesthetic will be applied to the treatment area. This is to ensure you remain comfortable throughout your procedure. Your provider will then carefully and strategically reconstruct the natural shape and appearance of the earlobe. This may require minimal cutting and sutures depending on how stretched the earlobe is. The entire treatment process typically takes less than an hour to complete.
What Can I Expect After my Earlobe Repair?
Earlobe repair gentle enough that patients are able to return to their normal daily activities, including work or school, the following day. While bleeding and discomfort are normal, your restored earlobes should be completely healed within four to eight weeks of surgery. Once your earlobes are completely healed, you are free to re-pierce them and continue the regular use of jewelry. If you are considering re-piercing your ears, we suggest you consider our ear piercing services to ensure proper placement.
How Much Does Earlobe Repair Cost?
The cost of earlobe repair surgery at Greenwich Point Dermatology will vary depending on your health insurance plan.
