EARLOBE REPAIR

RESTORE YOUR EARLOBE TO A NATURAL LOOK

 

Split or torn earlobes are a common occurrence in today’s society due to the popularity of large, dangling hoops and earrings that can catch in clothing or be grabbed by a small child. When this happens, the split involves separation of the skin from the point of the ear piercing down through the base of the ear lobe.

SPLIT EARLOBE REPAIR PROCEDURE
The most common method for repairing a split earlobe involves a small notch (incision) on the torn lobe, which is then meticulously stitched back together. The technique is called Z-Plasty that uses a zig-zag pattern to stitch the lobe back together. Healing usually occurs within 7 to 10 days when Dr. Bloom will remove the sutures. You will have to wait until he tells you it’s ok before you resume wearing earrings.
