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.

Dr. Bachilo is an incredible doctor
Megan Shea

Dr. Bachilo is an incredible doctor and has a very friendly and kind personality. I had been to many plastic surgeons and none made me feel comfortable and respected the way she did when talking with her. I will continue to see her no matter where I am in the U.S. - Google

Dr. Bachilo is excellent bedside manner.

Dr. Bachilo performed this procedure on me in March 2019. I am a 50-year-old female, 5‘4“, 170 pounds. Dr. Bachilo removed 10 L of fat, which is a very aggressive surgery. I felt comfortable with her, and asked her to push the limits, which she did. I spent the night in the hospital as a precaution as my blood pressure dropped and needed to be stabilized and monitored. Dr. Bachilo is excellent bedside manner. She checked on me several times during the day and night before I left. I am now 8 days post-op and pleased with the results. - RealSelf

She has been wonderful
Lindsey Coats

Dr. Bachilo has now completed an arm lift and thigh lift for me. She has been wonderful with me through both procedures and her work is remarkable. I have asked a lot of her throughout both procedures that are difficult enough without me asking her to go above and beyond. She continues to deliver truly incredible results. - Google

I recommend Dr.bachilo!!!

I Am so Thankful We Found Olga!
Elvira V.

I am so thankful we found Olga! She has changed my life! I've gotten breast augmentation with Olga, I went to 3 different surgeons for a consultation and the moment I met Olga my mom and I both knew she was the one. She was so personal, warm and made me feel like my concerns were her priority! She was always there for me, before and after the surgery. Answering my late night texts and making sure I was in a good place. My mom has also gotten treatments at their med spa and she couldn't be happier with her results. All the staff are very sweet, kind and welcoming! I would highly recommend this place! - Yelp
