Earlobe Repair: A Simple Fix for a Common Problem

Torn earlobes or earlobes with stretched out piercings are actually a pretty common problem that we see frequently in our practice, and are easily repaired in our office. Most earlobe deformities or injuries are caused by piercings, wearing heavy earrings, or unconscious tugging on the earrings, which can eventually stretch and tear the delicate skin of the earlobe. Luckily, ear lobe repair can fix the problem and restore your earlobes shape.

When to Consider Earlobe Repair

You may wish to have your earlobe or earlobes repaired when you begin to experience the following:

  • Split or torn earlobe
  • Enlarged piercing hole in the earlobe that appears as a vertical line
  • Injury or trauma to the earlobe


A split or tear in your earlobe not only looks unattractive, it may make it difficult or impossible for you to wear earrings. Luckily, a simple cosmetic treatment can repair a damaged or torn earlobe fairly quickly and without much fuss. At Glamour Plastic Surgery and Med Spa in Houston, led by noted plastic surgeon Dr. Olga Bachilo, earlobe repair is a common procedure that we perform frequently on many patients, restoring their ability to once again wear your favorite earrings.


Earlobe Repair Technique/Procedure

This is a simple procedure usually performed under local anesthesia with no sedation necessary. The procedure normally takes under one hour to complete in the comfort of our office. The severity of the tear or injury to the earlobe will determine the type of repair required. We may use small flaps to redesign the earlobe or simply suture together the two sides of a split lobe. We normally use absorbable sutures that are easily camouflaged thanks to their tiny size. Dr. Bachilo carefully sutures the earlobe using specific techniques to minimize scar formation.

The stitches may be removed or may dissolve on their own in about a week. If you’ve been avoiding wearing your favorite earrings because their heavy weight makes your earlobes sag and tear, earlobe repair may be the ideal solution for you.  Additionally, other treatments, such as dermal filler injections to augment volume and firmness in the earlobe, may also be recommended in order to make your earlobes strong enough to continue wearing any earrings of your choice.


Recovery After Earlobe Repair

There is little downtime after earlobe repair and Tylenol is usually sufficient to alleviate any discomfort caused by the procedure. You can plan to return to normal activities immediately following your treatment session. In most cases, we use dissolvable sutures, so it will not be necessary to return for suture removal. In most cases, Dr. Bachilo can also re-pierce your ear if you wish. In some cases, the earlobe will have to heal for a few month before it can be re-pierced and earrings can be worn comfortably.

Our Testimonials


I had the best experience at Dr. Bachilo’s office!
Bellaire, TX

I decided to try Coolsculpting for the first time on my chin. I was a bit nervous to have the procedure to get rid of my double chin, but OMG I can already see it working! Dr. Bachilo was awesome! She explained how everything works, what the machine does and the sensation I would experience during and after the treatment. I’ve made my appointment to do Coolsculpting on the belly next.

Great doctor
Houston, TX

Last month I went in to see Dr. Bachilo to get Dysport injections for my wrinkles and fillers in my cheeks and chin. I was very worried as it was my first time having this procedure done, I didn't know what to expect but Dr. Bachilo was very patient with me she took her time explaining and answering all my questions she made me feel very comfortable.

Wow! I am so pleased with Dr.Bachilo’s expertise!

I was so thankful for her honesty and knowledge of products/procedures that I was wanting to have done. She guided me to the correct breast implant size and recovery was a breeze. When it came to my concern of wrinkles and lines she was extremely understanding and actually listened to me. She explained the different fillers and Botox products, which I am so pleased in everything she did to make me look younger!!! I have recommended her to several friends and will continue to do so!! Just go and she how wonderful she is!

Exceeded my expectations
Sugar Land, TX

I believe it is essential to find a professional who is in tune with patients’ needs, responsive, can perform the necessary measures and do what is best for the client without heavily promoting additional services. Dr. Bachilo not only met my meticulous expectations, but also exceeded, so I will be back as needed.

Facial Fillers
Houston, TX

I hated wrinkles on my forehead, and nasal labial folds. I had filler injected around nasal labial folds and around corner of my mouth. Botox injection into my forehead. I couldn't be happier with the results. After many comments about why I look so much younger I will definitely have it done again.
