Earlobe Repair


The earlobe is an important part of our facial structures; it gives us a complete look, as it does not have any cartilage, and it helps in blood flow and keeps the ear warm. Apart from that, earlobes are generally important when it comes to styling you with different types of earrings, jewelry, etc. because, when it comes to styling, efforts are a must! But what if your earlobes are irregular, small, or have an incomplete cleft, or if they were injured because of sudden pulling? Then it becomes very difficult to accessorize yourself, or it can become an issue of insecurity when you start to feel or look different from others. So, what can you do regarding these problems?

What are the different types of earlobe problems?

Early-on problems can be of different types. Let’s look into the problems:
1. Sometimes the earlobe gets stretched out or split from wearing heavy earrings.
2. Large gauges in the earlobe for a long time can cause the earlobe to stretch out.
3. Pulling out the earrings if they stick to the clothes or if children pull them out accidentally can cause damage to the earlobes.
Worry not! We are here to provide you with a treatment that can help you get rid of this problem. And that is called Earlobe repair.

What does “earlobe repair” mean?

This is an advanced and needed technique to repair any earlobe problems in the safest way possible through the stitching of the defected earlobe. This process is done in order to treat the damages caused to the earlobes due to sudden accidents, people born with a cleft earlobe, any infection caused during the process of ear piercing, or simply if anyone has long earlobes and wants to reduce them according to their preference.

How is Earlobe repair done?

The procedure starts with the doctor checking the condition of your earlobe problems. Before the treatment, real anesthesia is applied to the treated area to minimize the pain or prevent infection. If your ear has an incomplete cleft, the doctor will expand the ear to a suitable length in order to make the ear complete, and then your ear is stitched to give the ear a complete look.

Is it a one-time process?

It is definitely a one-time process, as you don’t need to repair your ear through sessions. You may need to visit the clinic at the time mentioned by the doctor to remove the stitches.

How much time does it take to heal?

It might take at least two months to completely heal the earlobes. Are you wondering whether you can do piercings to your ears after the procedure? Yes, you can, but you need to wait for complete healing.

What aftercare do you need to follow?

1. After the treatment, you are advised to maintain a head-up position while sleeping.
2. Avoid doing activities that include any kind of pressure, as it is not good for the ears.
3. Avoid participating in sports, as you might get bumped, which may cause damage to the ear.

Are there any side effects involved?

You might experience redness and swelling in the treated area for some time, which is normal and can be cured after complete healing. It is possible to get a bruise after the treatment, but it will definitely fade after healing.

Are the results permanent?

The results are definitely permanent, and you don’t need to worry about doing the same process again and again. The only thing that should be kept in mind to enjoy the long-lasting results is to avoid wearing heavy earrings in order to protect your earlobes.

Is this procedure suitable for everyone?

Yes, anyone with ear holes that are wide or who has stretched earlobes, as well as someone who has a split or incomplete ear, is totally suitable for this procedure.

Therefore, if you are stressed about your earlobes and want to give them a beautiful and symmetrical look as well as cure your torn-out earlobes, Epiderma Cosmetology and Laser Clinic  is here to serve you by providing you with a safe option through this procedure.
