Accidents, injuries, heavy earrings, and sleeping in earrings, can all contribute to earlobe damage.

Not only can these deformities pose a cosmetic concern, but they can also prevent women and men from continuing to wear their favorite earrings.

Fortunately, earlobe repair surgery is a simple and straightforward solution.

Here’s everything you need to know about this quick and easy procedure at Cultura Plastic Surgery with board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Kelly Bolden, including what to expect from treatment and recovery.

What Is Earlobe Repair Surgery?

Earlobe repair surgery is a cosmetic procedure designed to repair a torn, split, or stretched earlobe piercing.

Whether earlobes have been stretched and damaged by an accident, injury, or heavy earrings, earlobe repair surgery can correct the issue in 15-30 minutes, without any downtime.

Your Earlobe Repair Surgery Consultation with Dr. Bolden

At Cultura Plastic Surgery, your consultation for an earlobe repair will be with Dr. Kelly Bolden. Dr. Bolden will go through your procedure in detail.

She will address all your questions to ascertain your specific needs. Together, you will decide the approach to giving you the best, long lasting surgical results.

Your surgery will take place on site, in our certified surgical suite at Cultura Plastic Surgery Center in Washington, DC.

How Is Earlobe Repair Surgery Performed?

Earlobe repair surgery may be performed on one or both earlobes and multiple piercings. It does not require general anesthesia and can be completed with a local anesthetic.

Once the earlobe is fully numbed, scar tissue is removed from the damaged piercing in order to promote proper healing. Subsequently, fine stitches are used to close the earlobe and complete the repair.

The treated area will then be covered with ointment and gauze, which should remain in place for one day.

What Can Patients Expect from Recovery?

After undergoing earlobe repair surgery, patients are free to return to work and resume normal activities. They should avoid sleeping or putting pressure on earlobes until sutures are removed in one week.

While showering is permitted after 24 hours, patients should not expose the surgical site to a bath or pool until four-to-six weeks after suture removal.

It’s also important to keep earlobes clean and apply antibiotic ointment daily.

When Can Patients Re-Pierce Ears Following Earlobe Repair Surgery?

Once the earlobe has been repaired, it can take up to a year for the scar to fully mature.  Even once the scar is mature, it will never be as strong as uninjured skin.

As such, it is best to re-pierce the earlobe in a totally different site if possible, and this can be done four-to-six weeks after the earlobe is repaired.

However, if you are planning to re-pierce the earlobe at the same site, Dr. Bolden recommends that you allow four-to-six months after earlobe repair surgery to prevent recurrence.
