Over time our earlobes can change shape and size. When earrings are worn, piercings can stretch or even tear earlobes. Some patients stylistically increase their earlobe size by stretching with gauges. Whether you are unhappy with the size of your earlobes, have a torn earlobe or are looking to correct previously stretching, Dr. Jacob Bloom at Bloom Plastic Surgery can help correct these areas for you.
Am I a candidate?
Dr. Bloom has treated and repaired earlobes for patients of all ages. From children who have had traumatic earlobe tears, to grandmothers who have had their earlobes split after years of heavy earring use, Dr. Bloom has fixed them all. Because surgery is completed as an in office procedure under local anesthesia almost all patients interested in the procedure are candidates. The size of the earlobe repair procedure will affect the cost of the procedure. Typically, an earlobe repair ranges from $500-1000 per ear. Those interested in an earlobe surgery can schedule a consultation to have a more accurate quote furnished. Dr. Bloom also offers complimentary ear piercings 6 weeks after your procedure if you are interested!
Procedure and recovery
Earlobe repair is an in office procedure that takes about 30-60 minutes to complete. Depending on the required correction Dr. Bloom can utilize several different techniques to achieve a repaired and restored earlobe. First, the area will be numbed with local anesthetic with near painless injections. Once the anesthetic has taken effect, Dr. Bloom will remove the stretched or torn component of the earlobe and repair it with 3 layers of sutures to create a long lasting correction. Once the procedure is completed Dr. Bloom will dress the incisions with Steri-Strips to eliminate the need for complicated wound care. Sutures will remain in place for one week and scar management will be explained in detail once they are removed. Patients return to the office 5 weeks after suture removal for re-piercing of their ears if desired.
