More About Split Earlobe Repair Surgery

The split earlobe is a very common occurring problem mostly as a result of wearing heavy earrings for long periods of time. Earlobe repair surgery is a reconstructive cosmetic surgery procedure to restore the appearance of earlobes that have been torn or stretched causing disfiguring for the patient 


Reasons for a split in an earlobe

Trauma to the ear due to:

  • Wearing excessively heavy earrings for long periods of time, the pierced earlobe gradually gets stretched until it is totally torn through, causing a split earlobe. 
  • A poor piercing technique, placing it too near the outer border of the ear.


Recommended: Split Earlobe Repair and Post-Op Care


Indications for Split Earlobe Repair Surgery

  • Earlobes which are stretched and the piercingis  enlarged to a point that it looks unsightly and can no longer support an earring.
  • Earlobes which are torn, as a result of overstretching or tearing while wearing earrings. 



Before Procedure

  • Complete medical history including any health problems you have had, ongoing medication, and any allergies you may have.
  • You may be advised to stop taking certain medicines such as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), aspirin
  • Physical examination –the surgeon will examine and also take pictures for medical records.
  • The consultant will discuss the benefits and your expectations of the procedure.


During Procedure

  • The  procedure takes approximately 30-40 minutes per earlobe 
  • It is an outpatient procedure done under local anaesthesia.
  • The surgeon removes the skin on the inside of the split and then stitch the ear back together.
  • Fine suture threads are used, support the repair and minimize scaring.
  • Bandages are applied on the ear lobes
  • Advised not to re-pierce the ear at the same place because scar tissue does not support an earring and it will cut out again. 


After Procedure

  • You will be able to go home the same day with a small dressing covering the stitches.
  • You will experience some discomfort following ear lobe surgery. 
  • Pain medication are usually prescribed 
  • Small amounts of antibiotic ointment are applied  for a few days ensuring cleanliness to help prevent infection 
  • Stitches are usually removed within one week, there is fine scar barely visible after healing . 
  • You will need to let the earlobe fully heal before getting your ear pierced again.
