Earlobe Repair

Conveniently located to serve Chicago

Earlobe repair is commonly done for torn earlobes, stretched earlobes or gauged earlobes. If there are other concerns with the ear such as the shape or how much it sticks out, you may need a formal otoplasty or ear shaping. Earlobe repair is a relatively simple office procedure that can be accomplished under local anesthesia with no downtime.


How do I know if I need earlobe repair?

Elongation of your ear piercing hole or separation of the earlobe are common problems that can be treated with earlobe repair.

Can I have my earlobes pierced again after having an earlobe repair?

Yes. We will help select the best location for your piercing to preserve symmetry and prevent recurrent problems.

How long does the procedure take?

The procedure takes 20-30 minutes in the comfort of our office. You can go back to your regular activities afterward.

What is the recovery like after an earlobe repair?

The recovery is quick and simple. There is minimal, if any discomfort. You usually have some stitches that should be remove a few days later. Occasionally, there is some swelling or bruising of the earlobe that can last for a few days.

Can damage from gauges be repaired?

Yes, this can also be done in the office with minimal downtime.
