One way to repair earlobes is with the help of precise surgery. For partial earlobe tearing and for earlobe stretching, immediate surgical correction is an option. For treatment of a split earlobe, the injury will need to heal on its own before surgery can be used to correct it.
Surgical earlobe repair can require around one hour to perform. At the start of the procedure, local anesthesia is used to numb the ear of the patient, helping to prevent any pain or discomfort during the procedure.
The surgical technique used during the procedure will depend on the exact nature of the issue. When earlobes are stretched beyond their normal proportions and are sagging, careful removal of skin at the site will be necessary.
When the earlobe is split, this will require use of medical sutures to reconnect the split sides. The fatty tissue inside the lobe, the inner layers of skin, and the outer layers of skin will all have to be reconnected appropriately in this way. Surgical removal of the damaged ear piercing tract will be necessary.
