Split Earlobe Repair


Split earlobes are not uncommon and many people assume there is nothing that can be done to correct or repair the damage. However, split earlobe repair is possible and though the procedure must be carried out with precision, is a fairly simple cosmetic procedure.

Split Earlobe Repair Procedure.

The aim of split earlobe repair is to correct the damage done and to make the earlobe look as it did before the split happened.

  • What causes a split earlobe?

    Split earlobes can be caused by a number of different things, all of which can be repaired with the help of a professional cosmetic surgeon who is skilled in split earlobe repair procedures. Split earlobes can be caused by:

    • Wearing heavy earrings
    • Earrings getting caught or tangled in clothing and pulled
    • An earring being pulled forcefully by a child
  • What does split earlobe repair involve?

    If you have a split earlobe you may benefit from undergoing split earlobe repair. The procedure is done under local anaesthetic and involves suturing the split skin back together to repair the earlobe to its previous form.

  • Are there risks involved with split earlobe repair?

    Split earlobe repairs are generally risk free cosmetic procedures, though a scar or notch may show where the split previously was. After time this will fade and your cosmetic surgeon will repair the earlobe to minimise the chance of noticeable notching.

  • Can earrings be worn after split earlobe repair?

    For a few months after the split earlobe repair procedure wearing earrings should be avoided. Depending on how the earlobe is repaired, you may need to have the lobe re-pierced in a different location to allow for an earring to be worn.
