What Is Split Earlobe Repair?

Earlobes can tear from wearing heavy earrings for a long time or after a sudden traumatic injury. If this occurs, it may cause you to feel self-conscious or prevent you from being able to wear your favorite earrings. This is why Essential Dermatology Group offers split earlobe repair, a minimally invasive procedure that restores the aesthetic look of your earlobe while also giving you the ability to wear earrings again. If you are ready to have your split earlobe repaired, reach out to our Bedford, TX practice to schedule a consultation with board-certified dermatologist Dr. Calvin Williams.

What Can I Expect from Split Earlobe Repair?

Typically, split earlobe repair is a quick surgical procedure that takes about 15 – 20 minutes to perform. A local anesthetic will be injected to help keep you comfortable before a tiny incision is made to remove the damaged skin tissue, which helps encourage healthy tissue to grow. Once that is done, small sutures will be placed to stitch the remaining skin back together. If dissolvable sutures are not used, the sutures will need to be removed in about a week. You may experience some bruising and minor swelling after the split earlobe repair surgery, but these should go away on their own. It is recommended that you wait about three months to re-pierce your earlobe and only wear lightweight jewelry.

Dr. Williams caught a skin cancer that other docs ignored. I recommend him to everyone.

About Us
Will a split earlobe repair itself?

Unfortunately, it is unlikely that a split earlobe will repair itself on its own. Instead, what usually happens is scar tissue forms. Once the earlobe is split, it typically requires a surgical procedure to remove scar tissue and properly restore its shape. If you have a torn earlobe, we encourage you to schedule a consult at Essential Dermatology Group.

Does split earlobe repair hurt?

Split earlobe repair is generally a well-tolerated procedure performed under local anesthesia at our practice in Bedford, TX. The anesthesia numbs the area, ensuring minimal discomfort during the procedure. After the minor surgery, some mild soreness or discomfort may be experienced, but it can be managed with over-the-counter pain medication.

Does split earlobe repair leave a scar?

Since split earlobe repair is a minor surgical procedure, it may only leave a small scar that is barely noticeable. The goal for Dr. Calvin Williams is to achieve the best aesthetic outcome possible. With proper care and following post-operative instructions, a scar from split earlobe repair can fade over time and become less visible.
