In this video we show you the surgery of a bilateral earlobe repair following splits in the earlobe. Earlobe repair surgery is done under local anaesthetic which means she will be awake throughout the procedure and be able to converse back and forth with Mr. Richards and his team. She tells us she wants to be able to wear earrings again, because she is currently unable to because of the splits. Mr. Richards begins working on the left ear which is the one which will be quickest to complete. He trims aways bits of the lobe, in order to create a shape that will fit together neatly before being stitched up.

The next ear actually has two splits in it, so it will be a bit more complex than the first ear. We hear Mr. Richards telling the patient this, as he begins to perform the surgery. This ear appears to take much more finesse than the first ear, spending a lot more time trimming minute pieces of earlobe away to create a good shape that will piece together nicely. The edges are then curved so the earlobe won’t end up being pointy. All the stitches are dissolvable, and we hear Aggie, talking through teh post operative care our patient should undertake.

It is important to remember that waiting a healthy amount of time before getting another piercing is very important. Aggie recommends approximately 3 months and definitely avoid the scar.

At the end of the procedure we are shown the final results before we finish the video and our patient is shown the results, and then has her ears taped up to protect the wound.
