The earlobe is a common area that can become stretched, torn, or deformed from jewelry or trauma.
Earlobe repair is a common procedure for men and women, children and adults. Years of wearing heavy earrings can stretch the earlobe, making it difficult to wear studs. Also, traumatic tears of the earlobe can result in an unattractive cosmetic appearance. Reestablishing the contour and symmetry of the earlobe helps to restore the attractive natural appearance to the ear and allow the patient to re-pierce their ear.
