Earlobe Repair

Repair of split or stretched earlobes

Earlobe Repair

Treatment overview

Ear lobes may split or stretch with time after use of ear rings.   This can result in either a split ear lobe or widened piercing hole.  Recently there has also been a trend for various piercings that stretch the earlobes significantly. Once these piercings are removed there is excessive stretched skin of the earlobe and a large hole.  The procedure can be performed to rectify these problems.

Earlobes that have been stretched significantly are likely to have loose redundant skin that will need to be reconstructed.  Specialist techniques such as using rotation flaps may needed for repair.  This may help aid a more rapid recovery and ability to wear earrings earlier.

Earlobe Split Repair


This is normally performed on an outpatient basis under local anaesthetic.  This means that you will attend a hospital appointment for the procedure and can leave soon after it is performed.  The local anaesthetic is an injection to help numb the earlobe to allow the procedure to be performed.

The procedure will involve stitching of the split or stretched lobe.  The stitches will normally stay in for a week and then you will have them removed.  Once the sutures are removed the wound should be fully healed.  It will look a little red and this will gradually fade with time.  This may take a few months to a year to fully settle.

Generally it is recommended that you should wait about 2-3 months before having a repeat piercing.  If you have a rotational flap repair then this may allow a piercing to be made sooner.  It is important to understand that the earlobe may stretch or split again with prolonged use of heavy earrings.

The cost of the procedure will depend on whether it is one side or both.  The price for one sided split  starts from £695 depending on where the procedure is performed.  The price for both sides starts from £1100.  The cost of stretched repair starts from £895 for one side and £1500 for two.
