Ear Lobe Repair (Stretched or Split Earlobe Repair)

ear lobeAs people wear earrings, the piercing holes often stretch over time and become elongated. It also happens frequently to those who wear heavier earrings.

What Can Happen?

When the piercing holes are stretched, earrings can slip down and not stay in place, making it difficult to wear certain earrings.

The bottom of the piercing holes may wear through completely, resulting in the earlobe splitting or tearing, at which point it becomes impossible to wear earrings.

 

How can it be repaired?

The edges of the split must be repaired by trimming the edges of the split and then stitched with a zig-zag pattern to minimize the chances of notching at the edge of the earlobe.

The procedure is performed under local anaesthetic, can be done in the clinic, and takes around 20 minutes for each ear lobe. Stitches are usually removed after 5 -7 days, and you can re-pierce your ear lobes in a few months.

However, to re-pierce your ears, it is recommended that you do it in a slightly different place than the original piercing hole. The original piercing hole is within the new scar and can be as strong as the normal unscarred skin. Placing the piercing hole within the scar can lead to a potential tear.
