If your earlobes (or lobe) has been damaged, stretched, torn, or are unusual in shape, earlobe repair can surgically correct the problem. Whether you are unhappy with enlarged piercings, formerly wore gauged earrings and want to repair larger holes, or your earlobe was torn or ripped, these aesthetic problems can be fully resolved with the help of our double board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Sadrian.


Should I Have Earlobe Surgery?

If your earlobe has been damaged by trauma, it can be surgically repaired to restore a more attractive look. Many candidates undergo this surgery to repair stretched, ripped, or elongated earlobes, or to address excessive scarring. A good candidate for earlobe surgery will be:

  • In good overall health
  • Fully educated on what to expect in surgery, recovery, and results
  • Unhappy or embarrassed by earlobe appearance due to shape, size, damage, rips, or elongated piercings.

What is Earlobe Repair Like to Experience?

This outpatient surgery is performed at our fully-accredited outpatient surgical center in La Jolla. Only local anesthesia is needed to perform the surgery. The procedure is customized for each person, and typically requires removing a small quantity of cartilage and suturing the earlobe to create a more aesthetic appearance. The entire surgery requires only about one hour to complete, based upon the extent of the earlobe repair necessary. After surgery, you will be free to return home, and will be allowed to drive yourself.

Recovery from Earlobe Surgery

Earlobe repair does not involve a significant recovery time and is not particularly painful. Any discomfort can be managed with over-the-counter pain medication if needed. No bandages are required after surgery. You can return to work, school, or other usual activities directly after the procedure with no restrictions, able to shower and shampoo your hair as normal, while avoiding the reshaped earlobes. Stitches will be removed in about one week. If you prefer pierced ears, after about six months of healing, you are free to have them re-pierced.

Why Choose Dr. Sadrian for Earlobe Surgery?
