Split, torn, or damaged earlobes can affect your overall appearance and make wearing earrings difficult. With an earlobe repair surgery, Dr. Weider can address your concerns with several different techniques to restore the natural appearance of your earlobes.
Earlobe surgery is usually a simple procedure used to address a torn, stretched, or otherwise damaged earlobe. The most common reason for needing earlobe surgery is years of heavy earring wear or gauges in the ears.

Patients in Dallas, TX seek out the expertise of board-certified plastic and cosmetic surgeon Dr. Weider for the repair of split, torn, stretched or gauged earlobes. Heavy earrings can cause a tear in the earlobe as you get older and can be accidentally ripped through the earlobe completely. Gauges can cause large holes in the ears that may be bothersome in appearance if you decide to take them out. Others may experience sagging earlobe as they age. These concerns can all be addressed with an earlobe repair surgery with Dr. Weider.
There are several different techniques that Dr. Weider can use to repair the earlobes, depending on your unique concerns. For a stretched or elongated earlobe, Dr. Weider will cut out a portion of the earlobe to improve the contour and suture it back together. Gauge earrings can leave earlobe deformities which may require earlobe reconstruction to restore the normal contour and size of the earlobe.
During the early postoperative period, patients are instructed to keep the incisions clean using hydrogen peroxide and an antibiotic ointment. Dr. Weider typically uses nonabsorbable sutures which are removed after five to six days. Patients are advised to wait at least six weeks postoperatively before re-piercing the ear should that be desired. After earlobe reconstruction, the final shape is usually attained at around six months.
