What is the recovery time for Earlobe Repair surgery?


Dear Aurora Clinics, what is the recovery time following a procedure to correct a split earlobe or stretched earlobe?


Once the local anaesthetic wears off after surgery, you can expect the ear to be a bit sore. This is usually controlled very well with simple painkillers such as paracetamol.

The dressing stays on for 5 days and the stitches are then removed in clinic. The scars are usually a bit red for a month or so after this before fading to a pink, then paler colour over the course of a year.

We hope this has answered your questions. Do not hesitate to contact us on 01324 578290 for any further advice or to book your consultation at Aurora Clinics.
