Let’s go over everything you need to know about earlobe repair before you come in for your private consultation with Dr. Emily Pollard.

What is Earlobe Repair?

Earlobe repair or earlobe surgery is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that restores the appearance of earlobes that have undergone trauma, whether that means they have been stretched or torn. Patients who typically come in for earlobe repair find that their earlobes have been stretched by wearing heavy earrings over a number of years, or have intentionally stretched their earlobes with gauges in the past. Dr. Emily Pollard is happy to provide all of her patients a more natural-looking earlobe, no matter how severe the sagging, stretching or trauma may be.

Can Earlobe Repair Fix a Torn Earlobe?

Yes, earlobe repair can absolutely fix a torn earlobe. Dr. Emily Pollard is a highly trained board-certified plastic surgeon with years of experience. She is able to transform any patient’s earlobes to give them a more natural-looking, pre-damaged appearance. This includes earlobes torn by trauma, earlobes torn or stretched by wearing heavy earrings, earlobes intentionally stretched with the use of gauges, and earlobes that may not have ever had a natural shape.

Does Earlobe Repair Involve Surgery?

No, earlobe repair does not involve invasive surgery at all. This minimally invasive procedure involves the use of a local anesthetic and a few small stitches to create a more natural appearance to the earlobe. Patients are typically able to get their earlobe repair done within about 15 to 30 minutes depending on the severity of their condition.

How Long Does Earlobe Repair Take to Heal?

With proper care, earlobe repair can take anywhere between eight and 12 weeks to heal completely. During your healing process, Dr. Emily Pollard will provide you with a set of post-operative care instructions to ensure you have a quick and easy recovery. After your incisions have completely healed after eight to 12 weeks, you are free to re-pierce your ears and wear earrings as normal.

Are your earlobes causing you to become self-conscious? Earlobe Repair in Philadelphia, PAIf so, you’re not alone. More and more people are turning to earlobe repair surgery to correct earlobes that have been damaged due to trauma or that have been stretched from years of wearing heavy earrings.

No one wants their ears to be the main focus. And they shouldn’t be, they should help to compliment the rest of your facial features. It is unlikely if you wear earrings, that you haven’t experienced a time or two where your earring got caught on something. This is extremely common and if the catch is severe enough, the earlobe can be ripped and in need of repair.

No matter the reason why your earlobe is damaged, earlobe repair can help; and now is the perfect time to do it.

What to Expect with Earlobe Repair

Earlobe repair is a quick and straightforward procedure that is performed in-office using local anesthesia. Once the area is numb, incisions are made in the area where the earlobe is torn or stretched. The tissue is reshaped and the incisions are closed with very fine stitches.

There is no downtime necessary following your procedure.  The treatment area should be kept clean and dry for two to three weeks to prevent an infection or adverse reaction. Once your ear has fully healed, around eight weeks, it may be re-pierced.

Take Proper Care to Prevent Repeat Damage

It’s important that you take care of your newly repaired earlobes, so you don’t re-injure them. Avoid heavy earrings as they will just start the sagging process all over again. Consider using patches that stick to the back of your earlobe and help to provide support, so the piercing doesn’t become enlarged.
