Earlobe Repair - Whether it’s the result of an accidental tear, years of stretching from too-heavy earrings, or wearing gauged earrings, if you’re unhappy with the way your earlobes look, your plastic surgeon can help. Ear lobe surgery consists of removing the skin that lines the slot giving the surgeon a raw edge to rebuild on.

There are two common techniques used: Layered Closure and “Z-plasty” flap. Regardless of technique, during the procedure, the surgeon applies local anesthesia and removes a small amount of tissue including the scarred skin around the tear. A dressing is placed for about 24 hours and thereafter a thin wound covering remains. Whether it’s a simple tear or a more complex repair of a gauged lobe, you can expect to have a fine scar. Ears can be pierced after they have healed as long as it is not in the scar area.

• For Layered Closure, the edges are stitched together using dissolvable sutures in the deeper layers and sutures that must be removed for the surface skin. There may be an increased risk of scaring with this type of closure, which may cause a notch at the bottom of the ear lobe.

• With the “Z-plasty” flap, the tissue is cut in a pattern and moved with its blood supply and redistributed to sculpt the ear. This procedure is known to lessen the chance of scaring.

Surgery: Outpatient, 1 hour

Recovery: 1 day to return to work; 1 week to full recovery.

Cost: $500 to $1000 per ear
