Earlobe surgery

The use of large or heavy earrings can as time passes, stretch the hole where the earring goes, and end up breaking the earlobe, either slightly or even completely.

Under local anesthetic and in our clinic, we reconstruct the torn earlobe. We reunite what the earring has broken. Its done in 15 minutes and the stitches removed two weeks later.

Some patients look for a reduction of the earlobes as they feel they are too big. This can also be treated in the same way as a torn earlobe.

Dia de la cirugia

The day of surgery

The torn earlobe surgery is a treatment that is done in our consultation clinic and consists in removing the skin from the eyelet of the ear, which has formed from the use of heavy or large earrings. With local anesthesia, we reconstruct and close this eyelet. We stitch the wound with stitches that will fall out by themselves. We need 15 minutes to stitch the torn earlobe and its very frequent that both earlobes are done at the same time, although on occasions there is only one earlobe affected. Once we have finished the surgery, your surgeon will explain what you need to do. Its not necessary for you to take any antibiotics nor any painkillers. They will also explain what to do with the dressings and how to keep the wound dry. You will be given a telephone number to be able to contact us at any time whenever you need us, also in English.
