The Problem

If your lobes are sagging, then an earlobe reduction will be the best way to reshape them and make them more proportionate, whereas if they’ve been torn then they can be stitched up and amended as well.

Earlobe Repair

The earlobe is the lower, fleshy part of the ear that is sometimes pierced. The area consists of a delicate piece of skin that is made up of fat and skin. This area can be split due to heavy or over-stretched earrings.

Earlobe repair is a quick and simple minor procedure to correct split, ripped or torn earlobes and/or stretched earlobes which may be the result of tribal piercings (flesh tunnels). The practice of ‘tribal’ piercing is an age-old one, though while it holds appeal for some, the resulting stretched earlobes can sometimes prove to be an obstacle at some point in life.

Our consultant plastic surgeons also offer ear lobe reduction procedures to re-shape and re-size the fleshy lobe part of the ear.

Earlobe repair treatment is available at our Birmingham, Bristol, Leeds, Machester, London, Princes Risborough in Buckinghamshire, Northampton and Glasgow clinics.

The Earlobe Reconstruction procedure

The technique used for your Earlobe reconstruction will depend on the state of your lobes and your desired results. It’s a fairly straightforward procedure that can be done in any of our in-house theatres under local anaesthetic. The procedure takes 20-30 minutes to perform.

If your lobes are sagging, then an earlobe reduction will be the best way to reshape them and make them more proportionate, whereas if they’ve been torn then they can be stitched up and amended as well.

For those of you with stretched lobes there are a couple of options. A hole with a small diameter could require only a few stitches. If you’ve stretched your lobes beyond 1.5cm in diameter, they won’t be able to spring back to their original shape and may require for the excess flesh to be trimmed before they can be reshaped.

Downtime

The procedure is performed under local anaesthetic, there’s no downtime involved, allowing you to return to your daily activities as soon as you’re ready.

Your surgeon will advise you on scar management and on when you can have your ears pierced again should you wish to do so.

Bilateral Earlobe reconstruction surgery prices start at £735 for a small procedure (split earlobe repair). Bilateral Stretched earlobe repair starts at £1,890 and can vary according to the degree of correction required, whether it is just the one ear or both that need the procedure and the size of your flesh tunnel.
