Split Earlobe Repair

Split Earlobe Repair

Over time, especially if heavy earrings are worn regularly pierced earholes can become more slit-like which causes earrings to hang incorrectly. It is common that both earrings do not match and this can make us feel awkward. Earlobes can also become totally split as a result or through injury.

Here at the Mayfair Practice our resident Mayfair doctor, Dr Masani has vast experience performing a simple surgical procedure to repair the split or slit with carefully placed stitches, known as sutures. His technique of placing sutures allows for a good aesthetic result where scarring is minimal and the end result is a perfectly placed earring hole.

A local anaesthetic injection will be given to make the procedure pain free. The edges of the two flaps of skin or the inside of the slit will be excised so that smooth tissue can be brought together to recreate the contour of the ear. Sutures will be strategically placed and allowed to heal.
The procedure is performed in a sterile environment to ensure your comfort and safety. Sutures will be strategically placed and allowed to heal. A small flesh coloured dressing will be applied over the sutures to help conceal them.
The ears will be given a period of 2-3 weeks to fully heal. On your follow up appointment the sutures will be removed. A new earring hole will then be placed in an aesthetically pleasing position to give symmetry to both ears.
If required a hyaluronic acid filler can be administered to give the earlobe a more cushioned and rejuvenated look for an earring to sit on.
