Earlobe Repair

Split, elongated, or gauged earlobe repair in Boston is done in many different ways.  I use a specialized technique that incorporates small flaps and the procedure is comfortably done in the office under local anesthesia.  When compared to more traditional straight-line closures, the multiple flap technique offers the advantages of:

  • Fewer recurrences
  • An earlobe that is naturally rounded as opposed to pointed (which can result from a simple sutured closure)
  • Reduced notching
  • If desired, the ability to leave the office wearing an earring (i.e., we can re-pierce you immediately – no need to return in 6 weeks for a re-piercing)

Additionally, the skin of the earlobe can sag with aging as does skin anywhere on the body.  Add the use of a heavy earring and the overall look can drag your whole face downward!  While injectable fillers such as Juvederm® are certainly a short-term option, surgical repair can offer you a same-day, long-term result for a more youthful appearance.  Scarring is discrete and there is no down-time.  Make an appointment today to swing by on your lunch hour!
