What is earlobe repair?
Earlobe repair is a surgical procedure for people with stretched earlobes as a result of a 'tribal' ear piercing, also known as a flesh tunnel. Tribal ear piercing is performed by gradually increasing the diameter of the piercing in the earlobe with progressively increased diameter rings. Split Earlobe Repair is an additional procedure that Aurora Clinics provides for an earlobe which has torn entirely, as a result of overstretching or accidental tearing.
Why have earlobe repair?
When the earlobe is stretched to more than 8mm with a tribal ear piercing, it is unlikely that the hole will fully contract to its original size. This results in an abnormally shaped earlobe which is often difficult to hide with hair, especially for men with shorter hairstyles. If you feel that your stretched or split earlobes are affecting your appearance, social life and career, the surgical team at Aurora Clinics can provide the solution.
- After posting a video of the procedure on Youtube, people from various walks of life have chosen Aurora for earlobe repair.
- One of our patients was a singer in a punk band, who has now chosen to pursue a career in teaching.
- He found succeeding in job interviews incredibly difficult due to the appearance of his ears.
- Another patient was a golf professional who was unable to play on the PGA Tour because of the appearance of his earlobes.
- Many men and women have had effective and life-enhancing treatment from the earlobe repair specialists at Aurora Clinics.
Tribal Ear Piercing Correction is performed under local anaesthetic and typically takes 20-30 minutes per earlobe. The Clinical Director of Aurora Clinics, Mr Adrian Richards, has devised his own technique for widely dilated earlobes which has provided consistently effective results. It involves removing the excess tissue and using fine internal and external stitches in the earlobe to create a normal shape. You can see the technique used in our videos.
Mr Richards was awarded the title of Best Cosmetic Surgeon in the Home Counties by the Daily Mail. At Aurora Clinics he has also assisted in the development of one of the country’s foremost specialist clinics for earlobe repair.
After your earlobe repair surgery there will be small scars on the ears which will at first be red, but will eventually fade to a pale silvery colour. After 4-6 months the earlobe should look almost completely normal with no obvious signs of the previous piercing.
