Split Earlobe Repair

A split earlobe can be unsightly and make people feel quite self conscious. An earlobe can split from a variety of circumstances, but it usually involves and earring getting pulled and splitting through the fleshy area of the ear. It can also happen when stretching your ear, with the lobe detaching itself from the side of your head under the strain of it being stretched.
Repairing this issue is relatively straight forward, under local anaesthetic, and being walked through the procedure by the surgeon operating.
We encourage patients to not get their ears pierced again after corrective surgery but advise them if they do, to do it away from the scar tissue, to avoid the earlobe splitting again. After around 6 months you will be healed to the point of your scars and surgery will be almost undetectable.
