What is Earlobe Repair?
Earlobe repair is often a necessary procedure that is not talked enough about. Whether your earlobes were purposefully stretched for fashion or have torn from years of wearing heavy earrings, earlobe repair is a simple and quick procedure that can restore the natural appearance of your earlobes for the long term. Talk to Dr. Breister Ghosh about whether earlobe repair is right for you during your private consultation.
What are the Benefits of Earlobe Repair?
There are many benefits of receiving earlobe repair surgery with Dr. Breister Ghosh and her medical team, including:

- Ears may be re-pierced following repair and healing
- Boosts overall confidence
How is Earlobe Repair Performed?
Your earlobe repair will be performed by Dr. Breister Ghosh in our comfortable office. Dr. Breister Ghosh will first numb the earlobes with a local anesthetic. She will then take a small amount of skin from the edges of the stretched or torn portion of the earlobe and reshape the remaining skin. The skin is then sutured together to form a round, natural-looking earlobe. The entirety of your earlobe repair may take up to 1 hour to complete for both ears.
What Can I Expect After My Earlobe Repair?
Following your earlobe repair, swelling and tenderness around your treated areas will be normal. Dr. Breister Ghosh will provide you with a detailed set of post-operative care instructions to follow for a swift and easy recovery. We often encourage our patients to ice their treated areas often to reduce excess swelling and bruising. You may return home immediately after your procedure. A follow-up appointment with Dr. Breister Ghosh is required 10-14 days following your earlobe repair for suture removal.
How Much Will My Earlobe Repair Cost?
The cost of your earlobe repair will likely vary depending on the extent of treatment needed to help you achieve your desired results.
