Earlobe Repair Surgery in Milwaukee and Waukesha

Earlobe Repair

Earlobe Repair Surgery has been gaining popularity for those who have stretched or torn earlobes and for those who want to redefine their piercings or have outgrown the aesthetic appeal of “gauges”. Our Board Certified Plastic Surgeons have extensive experience with stretched and torn earlobes, as well as lip gauges and the removal of dermal piercings.

What is Earlobe Repair Surgery?

Earlobe Repair Surgery restores the appearance of earlobes that are stretched from heavy earrings, earrings being torn, gauges, or sudden trauma.

This procedure is considered an outpatient procedure and can be done under local anesthesia right here in our clinics.

Patients often wish they had gone through with Earlobe Repair sooner rather than later. A personal consultation with one of our Board Certified Plastic Surgeons is the first step for anyone considering Earlobe Repair surgery. 

Earlobe Repair vs. Ear Surgery

If you are bothered by the appearance of your ears, Otoplasty, or ear surgery, is a procedure that can pin ears that protrude too far from the head or shape ears to improve aesthetic balance and harmony. If you are having trouble knowing which route you need to take, contact us today!

Earlobe repair Consultation

A personal consultation is the first step for every patient considering a facelift. During this meeting, one of our board-certified plastic surgeons will assess your physical and emotional health and discuss your specific goals for surgery.

If you are overweight and have a realistic desire to lose more than 5 pounds, your weight loss could affect your results. It’s important to discuss this at the time of your consultation.

During your physical evaluation, the doctor will assess your bone structure and the underlying tissues of the face. The thickness, texture and elasticity of your skin and the severity of the wrinkles and folds will also be considered.

Suggestions may be given for other cosmetic procedures that can be performed along with a facelift to meet your appearance goals. For example, a facelift is frequently combined with:

earlobe repair Surgery and recovery

 Before the procedure, all sides of the ear are cleaned with an antiseptic solution, and a local anesthetic is injected around the tear. An incision is made around the damaged earlobe, separating it into anterior and posterior flaps. 

The anterior and posterior flaps are sutured together and the wound is dressed in a sterile bandage. 

After Earlobe Repair, most patients are able to drive themselves home and return to work either the same day or the following day. The area should be kept clean to avoid infection.

If absorbable sutures are not used, sutures will need to be removed 1-2 weeks after completion of the repair procedure. Re-piercing can be done anywhere from 2-6 months after the procedure.
